Spot wildlife including sea lions, penguins, elephant seal and much more!

After an hour of leaving Puerto Madryn we'll be in the Provintial reserve of Peninsula Valdes, known world wide for all the marine wildlife that every year arrives to this place.

If you arrive to this part of Patagonia along the month of June to mid of December is possible to watch the Southern Right Whale, also from September to April you'll have the opportunity to observe Penguins, Elephant Seals, Sea Lions and the most unique terrestrial wildlife, all these inmerse in a unique landscape.
The tour will take approx. 8 hours as it takes about 250 miles (400 km) round trip to drive around Peninsula Valdes, but throughout the day we'll do different stops and short walks in order to enjoy the wildlife and of course to lunch as well.

So please let me know any questions you may have and I'll give my best to suggest you anything you need to fits your needs and wishes.

Don't hesitate to ask me for bigger groups.


From the pier we go straight to Peninsula Valdes, our first stop will be at 30 miles on the visitor center, then we continue to Puerto Piramides, another 15 miles, then to Caleta Valdes or Punta Norte or Punta Delgada depending on the month, as wildlife migrates from one place to another, to finally drive back to the pier.

A Recent Review of this tour

Roger was the perfect guide for this tour. He has a vast knowledge of the faun and flora and can locate them very easily even when driving. We saw so many things that day, we will have wonderful memories for a long time! It was a long drive but Roger made it worth it. Thank you!
