The unique ecosystem of beautiful Peninsula Valdes

Peninsula Valdés is home to 400km of beautiful coastline and a unique ecosystem that attracts a variety of wildlife, rarely found together anywhere else in the world. The landscape here is made up of rocky cliffs, shallow lagoons with extensive mudflats, beaches, coastal sand dunes, and small islands that are just waiting to be explored.

One of the star wildlife attractions is a population of southern right whales that use the protected waters for mating and calving from May to November and a trip out onto the bay is a truly amazing experience. You will also find large colonies of elephant seals and southern sea lions lazing on the beaches which occasionally attract the attention of passing orcas, a huge diversity of birds, and five different colonies of Magellanic penguin.

The Area

Many people stay in the town of Puerto Madryn which is a 1hr 30min drive from Trelew airport. This small town has a range of shops and restaurants and is a great base from which to explore Peninsula Valdes and go whale watching. There are also several lodges set right in the heart of the Peninsula Valdes National Park where you can experience the unique eco-system from your doorstep. The area of Trelew is also well known for its Welsh settlements.

Best Time to Go

The Whale watching season runs from May to November. Summer highs (Nov - Feb) reach 28°C and winter lows can reach a very fresh 3°C but the weather is always changeable.
