Arrive at Trelew Airport where your guide will greet you and transfer you to the downtown area of Puerto Madryn. Set off on 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 bathing, fishing, taking care of their eggs and raising their young on the beach. Continue your tour with a visit to Chubut's capital city, Rawson, and meander along the Playa Unión beachfront. Visit Trelew and Gaiman, famous for its Welsh inhabitants who carry on the traditions of their ancestors, demonstrated by the charming Welsh teahouses found in the region.

Pass through Patagonian landscapes and rustic farms along the way to Valdés Peninsula, a wildlife refuge reserve. From Puerto Pirámides, look out for majestic Southern Right Whales during the season of June-December, or playful sea lions from December to March. Continue to the Punta Delgada Lighthouse to enjoy panoramic views of the coastline and have a break for lunch which is included in the tour. Head to Valdés Inlet to witness the gigantic sea elephants weighing up to an astounding 3 tons and measuring around 6m long. Bird-watchers will delight in a visit to Birds Island, where flamingos abound in the wetlands and gulls, petrels and other seabirds coast and soar through the sky.

Start on Coastal Avenue which borders the Beagle Channel and the Ushuaia harbor. Meander through the old town and stop by the prison, an important cultural site given Ushuaia’s former role as a convict colony. Finally, visit the End of the World Museum to gain even greater insights into this isolated part of the southern hemisphere. Afterward, check into your hotel near the coast and appreciate its excellent location overlooking the Beagle Channel with the imposing yet scenic Andes Mountains in the background.

Experience incredible scenery including windswept lenga trees, powerful yet slow-moving glaciers, towering mountains and cascading waterfalls. Walk along paths to Ensenada Bay and Lapataia Bay, and circumvent the serene lakes of Lago Roca and Lago Fagnano. Trek through the Park and keep an eye out for native guanacos, Andean foxes and beavers. Various species of birdlife also thrive in the region, and geese, ducks and oystercatchers frequent the rivers and lakes. Then visit the End of the World Train Station, riding the Fuegian South Railway from the outskirts of the city along the Pipo River. The train was originally built by prisoners to collect and transport timber for firewood. Afterward, return to Ushuaia and spend the remainder of the day as you wish.
