Peninsula Valdes is one of the best places to see wildlife in the country, and indeed for those interested in Argentina tours with a spotlight on marine life, it may be the very best.
Here in Peninsula Valdes one can see Southern right whales, sea lions, orcas (killer whales), magellan penguins and elephant seals as well as many other species, all interacting in their natural habitat.
The scenery is some of the most stunning that you’ll encounter on any of our Argentina tours. With a barren majesty that is quite breathtaking, this beautiful coast remains pristine with crystal clear water (making it ideal for diving at the correct times of year). As if this wasn’t enough, three giant salt lakes can be found in the middle of the peninsula.
