Two penguins in Patagonia

Puerto Madryn - Punta Tombo Penguin Rookery - Trelew

Day 1

In the morning, arrive in the Trelew Airport (REL) where your guide will greet you and transfer you to the downtown area of Puerto Madryn. From there, begin a full-day tour to the Punta Tombo penguin rookery, one of the most important Magellanic penguin colonies in South America. See thousands of penguins on this peninsula just south of Trelew. You may see penguins bathing, fishing, incubating their eggs and raising their young on the beach. Continue your tour with a visit to Chubut's capital city, Rawson, where you can stroll down the Playa Unión beachfront. Then visit Trelew and Gaiman, famous for its Welsh inhabitants who continue the traditions of their ancestors with Welsh tea houses throughout the region. There is also an important Paleontology Museum here. Return to Puerto Madryn and check in to your Hotel.

Day 2

After breakfast in the hotel, depart for another full day excursion, this time to the Peninsula Valdés. Pass through Patagonian landscapes and farms while you make your way to the Valdés Peninsula, a wildlife refuge preserve. From Puerto Pirámides, you may be able to go whale watching to watch Right Southern Whales (June-December), sea lions (December to March). Continue to the Punta Delgada Lighthouse to enjoy the views and have lunch (included). After this, we go to Valdés Inlet to see huge sea elephants, some up to 3 tons and 6 meters long. Also visit the Birds Island, where there are telescopes available perfect for birdwatching. You may see flamingoes, gulls, petrels, and more. Then return to Puerto Madryn and spend the rest of the day at your leisure.

Day 3

After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your flight to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. Upon arrival in Ushuaia, your guide will greet you and take you on a 2 hour Ushuaia city tour & museum visit. This tour begins on Coastal Avenue, which borders the Beagle Channel and the Ushuaia harbor. See the old downtown, and then visit the prison, because Ushuaia used to be a prisoner's town, pioneered by convicts. Finish with a tour of the End of the World Museum. Then check in to your hotel located near the coast and overlooking the Beagle Channel and the Andes Mountains.

Tierra del Fuego National Park Train Tour in Argentina

Tierra del Fuego National Park Tour

Day 4

Have breakfast in the hotel and then embark on a 4 hour Tierra del Fuego National Park tour and train ride. This is Argentina's first coastal national park and has incredible scenery, including windswept lenga trees, glaciers, mountains, waterfalls, and walking paths to Ensenada Bay, Lapataia Bay, Lago Roca, and Lago Fagnano. While trekking through the park, you may see guanacos, Andean foxes, beavers, geese, ducks, and oyster catchers. Next visit the End of the World Train Station, taking the Fuegian South Railway from the outskirts of the city along the Pipo River. The train was built by prisoners to help them collect and transport timber for firewood. Afterward, return to Ushuaia and spend the rest of the day at your leisure.

El Calafate Argentina Beachside

Transfer to El Calafate

Day 5

Have breakfast in the hotel and then transfer to the airport and fly to El Calafate, located north from Ushuaia. El Calafate is known as the jumping off point for visiting the glaciers of Los Glaciares National Park. Check in to your hotel and spend the rest of the day at your leisure, perhaps relaxing at the hotel pool, playing a game of golf, or exploring the town.

Boat traveling close to Perito Moreno Glacier

Tour of the Upsala Glacier and Onelli Bay

Day 6

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, and then depart for a full-day tour of the Upsala Glacier & Onelli Bay. Take a cruise boat from Bandera Port in Calafate, along the Southern and Northern Bends known as the Garganta del Diablo, or Devil's Throat. Pass drifting ice floes as you approach the Upsala Glacier. Then continue to Onelli Bay, which is dotted with ice floes. Go hiking through the forest to see Onelli Bay up close. Then return to the port in the late afternoon, and spend the rest of the day as you wish.

View of Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina

Tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier

Day 7

Have an early breakfast and head out on another full day tour, to the Perito Moreno Glacier. Driving through the Los Glaciares National Park towards the glacier is very scenic, and when you reach the glacier, there are unforgettable panoramic views of the glacier and the surrounding mountains. Perito Moreno is one of the most famous of the glaciers because it faces Lago Argentino, and often large chunks of ice will break off from the glacial wall and crash into the lake, in a process called calving. Enjoy walking along the shore of Lago Argentino to admire the glacier from several angles. Then return to the town in the afternoon.
