There is so much to see and do when visiting Argentina and this two day three night Valdes Highlights tour is one of them. Your adventure begins in Trelew from where you travel to Puerto Madryn and the Peninsula Valdes. Depending on the time of year you visit, you can enjoy the penguin season, visit Rawson and the Welsh city of Gaiman and go whale watching. There is never a dull moment over these two action packed days.
On arrival at Trelew airport you will be met and taken to visit to Punta Tombo Penguin Rockery, the largest penguin nesting ground in continental South America with around three million Magellan Penguins gathering in one spot. Walk through the paths at the National Reserve and watch these fascinating creatures then leave the reserve and continue to Gaiman. Tour this very Welsh city with time at leisure to enjoy a typical Welsh Tea and pastry. Then return back to Puerto Madryn and check-in to your hotel.
Leave in the morning for a full day tour to Peninsula Valdes, one of the finest wildlife reserves in South America. Sea lions, sea elephants, seals, guanacos, rheas and many seabirds can be found in large numbers on the beaches and headlands and whales visit its sandy white beaches between July and November. Then watch the Sea Elephants at Caleta Valdes or Punta Norte where Guanacos sometimes stroll across the beach. Later return to your hotel at Puerto Madryn at the end of an action-packed day.
Today your short tour of the Peninsula Valdes comes to an end. Possibly time for some more sightseeing and souvenir shopping in Puerto Madryn before you are picked up from your hotel and driven to the airport to catch an internal flight and continue your South American adventure or begin your journey home. This tour makes a great add on to any longer holiday in Argentina where you can visit the beautiful capital of Buenos Aires and the stunning Iguazu Falls.
