Whales, Seals, Penguins, and a lot more - Roundtrip to Peninsula Valdes *private tour guide and transportation included*

We'll leave the city of Puerto Madryn towards Peninsula Valdes, which was declared by Unesco as World Heritage and home of the most exotic marine wildlife.
Depending on your arrival month is what you get to watch. Along the month of November and 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 such as Guanacos (Lama kind), Rheas and others that you probably had never heard of, all these inmerse in a unique landscape. Most of the excursion will be on car as it takes about 250 miles (400 km) round trip, 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 doubt you may have and I'll give you the best suggestions that fits your needs and wishes.

Note: If your are a bigger group don't hesitate to ask me as I can arrange for bigger transportation


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, anohter 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

Carina is an easy going person and an extremely knowledgeable guide. She explained to us lots of things related to the places where she drove us, from history to geography, local economy and society. Stopped patiently whenever we wanted to take pictures - our hobby- and spotted lots of animals. Thanks a lot Carina for this experience! And please come to Italy to taste the real pizza and pasta :))
