Peninsula Valdes holidays

Penguin in Peninsula Valdes

Captivating wildlife

The Valdes Peninsula is a sanctuary for marine wildlife and hosts a vital breeding ground for the endangered southern right whales from August to mid-December.

This period also sees elephant seals and sea lions flourishing along its shores. Notably, orcas, showcasing a unique hunting strategy, grace these waters from February to March. A short distance south, Punta Tombo unveils a mesmerising spectacle between September and April, as it becomes home to South America's largest Magellanic penguin colony. Boats departing from Puerto Piramides offer a chance to witness this thriving ecosystem, complemented by natural viewpoints and beaches along the city's coast.

The Atlantic coast provides an idyllic setting for observing whales, orcas, birds, sea lions, and elephant seals. Adventure seekers and hikers find haven in Lago Puelo and Los Alerces National Parks, while the Carrileufu and Corcovado Rivers beckon rafting enthusiasts. Scuba diving is a compelling option, with the region fostering artificial reefs for first-time divers.

Delve into the area's Welsh roots by savouring Welsh Tea and Traditional Confectionery in Gaiman and Trevelin villages. A delightful experience awaits, where Welsh tea, traditional marmalades, and confectionery provide a taste of the rich cultural heritage embedded in these charming communities.
