Petrified wood in Argentina

Arrive in Puerto Deseado, Petrified Woods Tour & Dinner

Day 1

Enjoy a welcome reception at Comodoro Rivadavia airport and be escorted by your guide to Puerto Deseado. Make a stop at the Jaramillo Petrified Woods on the way. Fossilized by the effect of volcanic eruptions millions of years ago these woods now rest as rock statues and show evidence of the effects of volcanic dust. Amazingly, the terrain was once a palm-covered landscape instead of the bleak, barren plateau that it is today. Check into your hotel in Puerto Deseado and relax for the rest of the evening.

Day 2

Set aside the entire day to visit Ría Deseado, an arresting geographical landscape created by the inlet and the altered course of the river spanning hundreds of years. Once covered by the sea, the area is renowned for its unique wildlife and geological features. The only region where five different species of cormorants co-exist, see them feeding, nesting or flying high above the terrain. From October to April, the star of the inlet is undoubtedly the striking Magellanic penguin. Explore the rookeries on Quiroga Island, Punta del Paso Key, Birds Island and Chaffers Island for the chance to see them in their natural habitat. Don’t miss seeing Rockhopper penguins who are also endemic to the area. After feasting your eyes on the natural wonders in the great outdoors, return to the hotel in the evening.
