Trips to Argentina: Península de Valdés is an important Eco-tourist destination to keep in mind when traveling to Argentina.
Península de Valdés is located on the Atlantic coast of Chubut in Patagonia and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is a paradise that offers surprising scenery, spectacular fauna watching where animals are at hand’s reach and an interesting offering of water sports.
Puerto Madryn, located 48 miles away, is the operative base for touring the region because of its infrastructure. It is also the scuba diving capital of Argentina.
When to go: Every year between June and December the southern right whale visits this region in order to reproduce and give birth. During the summer (September to December) thousands of penguins arrive in order to nest, mate and give birth before beginning their journey back and preparing for their return the following year.
The ideal time to visit the region is between September and December in order to enjoy both events. You can also see Commerson’s dolphins swimming past Port Rawson all year long, along with seals and sea elephants. All this makes the Atlantic coast of Chubut irresistible.
