Penguins, Whales, Glaciers, Torres del Paine

by birdlover_wi

Hi there!

We want to hit all the abouve things and was looking for some advice on reputable tours. What is our best approach for seeing all of them while we are there? We will be going in November for about 10 days. We saw this tour from "Planet Earth, the way it used to be" which sounded perfect....anyone used them before?

I was with them last november,
here my pictures
I had done everithing by internet,
and when was time to pay....I was quite scared.
Now I can tell you that everithing was ok.
The journej to Torres del Paine is quite expensive but the
guys know how to organize it.
My experience with them is ok, but remember that Patagonia is well developed for turist and tourism and every place has Specialized people to make thinks easier.

Travel Tips for Puerto Madryn

I saw a whale!

by andal13

We spent three days at Puero Madryn, but they were full of activities, so we had not time enough to know the city; nevertheless, it looks like a very attractive place, situated at a beautiful gulf.

Estuvimos tres días en Puerto Madryn, pero estaban tan llenos de actividades que no tuvimos tiempo suficiente para conocer la ciudad; sin embargo, parece ser un lugar muy atractivo, situado sobre un hermoso golfo. We were arriving in Puerto Madryn on the bus, after a 27 hours ride, when we met the seaside: over there, at the sea, we began to "discover" the amazing whales!!!!

Estábamos llegando a Puerto Madryn en el bus, luego de un viaje de 27 horas, cuando nos enfrentamos con la costa: allá a lo lejos, en el mar, comenzamos a "descubrir" las ballenas!!!

Punta Lomo

by HispanicYob

Punta Lomo is located quite a distance from Puerto Madryn. About almost a half an hour along the city coastline and through the back of the desert that is in the outskirts of town. The best time of year to catch the sea lions seems to be spring (winter over here for the Northern Hemisphere), as that's the time I was there. There's a outlook that sticks out from the side of the cliff where you can, from a distance, observe these creatures. They're quite noisy.

Guanacos live only in South America - from northern Andes to its sothern tip. They are reddish-brown on the back, and almost white on the underside and they are closely related to the camel. Guanacos live in small herds made up of a male, several females, and young of various ages. You will most likely see many of them along the road. Be careful if you're the driver!

Sea Lions

by Maggies

Punta Norte (171 km from Purto Madryn) is where the only Sea Lions continental colony is. An adult weights up to 300 kilos. They come here every August for matting and you can see them on the place all year round. In March you can also see Killer Whales hunting for the Sea Lions, they usually come once a day.


by andal13

The penguins of Magallanes (Spheniscus magellanicus) reach 45 cm high and 4 or 5 Kg weight; the males have a bill longer and thicker than the females. The picture shows a male with his elegant black and white suit.

Los pingüinos de Magallanes (Spheniscus magellanicus) alcanzan una altura de 45 cm y los 4 ó 5 Kg de peso; los machos tienen un pico más largo y grueso que las hembras. La foto muestra a un macho con su elegante traje blanco y negro.
