Day 1: Buenos Aires / Puerto Madryn
– Flight from Buenos Aires to Trelew airport
FD Transfer in Trelew (REL) airport / Hotel located in Puerto Madryn – visit of PUNTA TOMBO on the way.
Arrival at Trelew airport. You shall be met by our representative and depart for a full day Tour to Punta Tombo Penguins reservoir, on the Atlantic coast. After a 2-hour drive we reach Tombo. Half a million Magellan penguins breed here, the largest penguin nesting ground in continental South America.
There are many others species of seabirds and shorebirds, most notably king and rock cormorants, giant petrels, kelp gulls, flightless steamers ducks, and black oystercatchers. Most of the nesting area is fenced off; this does not prevent your approaching the birds for photography, but remember that penguins can inflict a bite serious enough to require stitches. They remain on land from September to April. Final arrival to Hotel in Puerto Madryn.

Day 2: Puerto Madryn– FD Peninsula Valdes
– Breakfast at Hotel
Morning departure for a full day tour to Peninsula Valdes. About 18Km. of Puerto Madryn, across the Carlos Ameghino Isthmus enter Peninsula Valdes, one of the finest wildlife reserves in South America. Sea lions, sea elephants, seals, guanacos, rheas and many seabirds are present in large numbers in the beaches and headlands. Sheep breading
ranches “estancias” occupy most of the peninsula’s interior, which includes one of the lowest continental depressions in the world, the salt flats of Salina Grande and Salina Chica, 42 meters below sea level. In the San Jose Gulf, just off the Isthmus, is the Bird’s Island, a bird sanctuary off limits to humans but visible through a powerful telescope. Puerto Piramide, the peninsula’s only village, was the port of exit for salt from Salina Grande at the turn of the century, but now it depends exclusively on tourism. Right whales visit its sandy white beaches between July and December. Caleta Valdes, on the eastern shore, is a sheltered bay with a long gravel spit onto which Sea Elephants haul up in the spring. They are easily photographed, but should not be approached too closely. Guanacos sometimes stroll across the beach. Return to Puerto Madryn. .
