This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: El Pedral, 70 kilometros de Puerto Madryn, Punta Ninfas 9103 Argentina
We’ll kick our trip off by picking you up from the meeting point in our comfortable tour bus. We’ll then travel around 75km through the Patagonian outback until we get to the southern end of the Gulf Nuevo - Punta Ninfas - and its pretty lighthouse.
From here, you’ll get to see elephant seals and sea lions breeding and going about their daily lives on the surrounding beaches and rocks.
We’ll then head on to El Pedral, an old, authentic Patagonian ranch which now serves as a local museum. Further on, we’ll reach the Magallanes penguin colony, taking a guided tour through their nests to see how these curious little creatures live. In 2009, 14 initial pairs of Magallanes penguins made their home on the beaches of El Pedral, and after less than 10 years the colony is over 6,000 members strong.
During our exploring, the Asador (head of the barbeque) will be preparing some traditional Patagonian lamb for our lunch. This will be served along with homemade empanadas, a selection of salads, red wine, a fruit salad and plenty more.
After lunch, you can hop in the pool and enjoy the beauty of the area, sit in the shade or simply relax in the sun with a tea or coffee and typical torta galesa (Welsh cake).
We’ll bring our tour to a close by dropping you back in Puerto Madryn at around 5pm.
