  • Elephant Seals from On High

    Puerto Madryn Things to Do

    We were proteced from ourselves at Punta Loma, the viewing area for elephant seals who return here annually to mate. We were safely high above them on a bluff which looked down on their protected cove. The marine elephants can grow to twenty feet in length and a weight of five tons. Normally docile around humans, they can move quickly when agitated...

  • See Sheep Shearing Safely

    Puerto Madryn Things to Do

    Patagonia is not all lush grasslands, some of it is scrub desert. It takes a lot of scrub to raise one sheep, and this effects the economics of sheep raising. A sheep is sheared once a year and a profitable ranch will have 2,000 plus sheep. This makes for a huge ranch to be successful. Fortunately for the traveler, San Guillermo is a ranch near to...

Also, you can access by land through National Route 3.The Valdes Peninsula is a protected area, so we you must pay an access fee of around $ 10 for national adults and $ 35 (argentinian pesos) for...

  • Hiking around Puerto Piramides

    Puerto Pirámides Things to Do

    After we had finished our whale watching tour we had 3 or 4 hours to wait for the return bus to Puerto Madryn, so we used the time to go hiking on the cliffs and hills around Puerto Piramides. There is a couple of hills north of the town from where a short but tough climb on steep sandy slopes offers good views over the town and out to sea. An...

  • Welsh Tea Houses

    Gaimán Things to Do

    The biggest draw in Gaiman is having traditional afternoon tea at one of the historic homes in the downtown area. You are served hot tea and half dozen types of sweet breads and biscuits. They charged us 30 pesos per person, which is quite steep for tea and cake, although they didn't charge for our 10 year old son. And what you're paying for...

  • Welsh Tea in Gaiman

    Gaimán Restaurants

    The advertising blurb in our cruise brochure tickled my taste buds with mention of a "Welsh Tea in Gaiman". This included what sounded like an enchanting display of Welsh choral music from a local choir.Gaiman is a Welsh colony in the midst of Argentina and, as I have a lot of family in Wales, I couldn't resist the notion and signed up for the day...

    Parque Nacional Los Alerces Things to Do

    Cerro Alto El Dedal, overlooking Lago Futalaufquen, is one of the most impressive peaks in the park, and a well marked circular trail leads from Futalaufquen up the mountain. We attempted the climb in mid November, which, unfortunately, was too early in the season to make it to the top. The summit is at 1916 metres altitude, but during our hike the...

    Parque Nacional Los Alerces Transportation

    Alerces National Park is remote in comparison to other parks in the Lake District, and public transport options, even in high season, are limited. There is only one road running through the park, the mostly ripio Ruta 71, meaning that much of the park is inaccessible or at least very hard to reach. Getting here by car is definitely the best option....

    Trevelín Things to Do

    When I visited La Tumba de Malacara, I did not find anyone to take me round and instead I took photos of John Evan's house. Usually, Clery Evans, grandaughter of the village's founder, would tell you the history about the settlement and also you can see the grave of John Evan's house, El Malacara, and how the horse saved Evan's life. This attracts...

  • Enjoy sharing a Welsh Tradition!

    Trevelín Restaurants

    Trevelin is the most Welsh of all the towns in Welsh Patagonia and there is nothing more appropriate than to take a Welsh Tea in one of the two tea houses in the town. I highly recommend Nain Maggie and for 60 ARP you can have a set tea with bread with butter and jams; scones and a variety of cakes along with unlimited tea! The cakes were delicious...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first part of any tour to Peninsular Valdes is to the museum. If you like looking at rocks under glass you'll have a ball, Better to quickly look at the whale bones and then sun yourself outside.
