Top 4 Valdes Peninsula Tours
For wildlife lovers interested in a tour of Argentina, the Valdes Peninsula is paradise on earth. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Valdes Peninsula is home to whales, sea lions, penguins, and many marine birds. Visit the Punta Tombo penguin rookery to see Magellanic penguins. Spend the night in an estancia such as Estancia Rincon Chico or Estancia La Elvira. From there many activities are available such as horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, whale-watching, and bird-watching, offered to give travelers a better understanding of this wonderful region. Due to a large number of shipwrecks in the bay, marine life has flourished and scuba diving has also become available to visitors.
Spot Whales & Penguins in Península Valdés
For a complete Argentina travel package, extend a Valdes Peninsula tour with visits to Puerto Madryn, the Welsh community of Trelew, and Buenos Aires.
Once you’ve explored the Valdes Peninsula, Puerto Madryn, and Trelew you might want to venture further into Argentina’s Patagonia region. We recommend a ride aboard the Patagonia Express train, which will take you deep into the central region of Argentine Patagonia. Or you could simply fly from Buenos Aires to Trelew and then return to the capital, all in under a week. You can see below some of our Argentina trips that include Valdes Peninsula tours.
