Petrified wood in Argentina

Arrive in Puerto Deseado, Petrified Woods Tour & Dinner

Day 1

Enjoy a welcome reception at Comodoro Rivadavia airport. Then depart with your guide to Puerto Deseado, visiting the Jaramillo Petrified Woods on the way. These woods were fossilized by the effect of volcanic eruptions millions of years ago. Today they rest as rock statues and exhibit some action of volcanic dust. Take note that the land was once covered in palm trees; it was not the bleak, barren plateau that it is today. Accommodation and dinner at Hotel Acantilados in Puerto Deseado.

Full-Day Puerto Deseado Birdwatching Tour

Day 2

Today you will embark on a full day excursion to Ría Deseado, an interesting area conformed by the inlet and the adjoining zones. This inlet is unique for its geological attributes and beautiful fauna. The course of the river has been abandoned by the former river that covered it, once occupied by the sea. This makes it a national treasure, due to aesthetic and scientific reasons. It's the only place in the world where five different species of cormorants coexist, all of them feeding in the area and three of them nesting. The Magellanic penguin is a usual inhabitant of the inlet from October to April and the most important rookeries are Quiroga Island, Punta del Paso Key, Birds Island and Chaffers Island. Rockhopper penguins are also common here. In the evening, return to the hotel.
