PENINSULA VALDES & PUERTO MADRYN

THE ATLANTIC ROAD

An escape to visit Puerto Madryn & Península Valdés is the new proposal. With base in Las Grutas, this full-day excursion includes the world´s major southern right whales sanctuary visiting Puerto Piramide and Madryn.

The tour departs at 07:00 with guide in buses equipped with air conditioning and heating. We drive along the patagonic bush to the south via National Route Nr.3 while enjoying a good breakfast served onboard towards the Península Valdés located 330 kms from Las Grutas. We pass by Sierra Grande, home to Argentina´s largest iron mine and we follow towards Puerto Piramide where we stop at Ameghino Interpretation Centre. From there one can view the isthmus where the gulfs are separated by barely 7 kms of land.

The centre has got a gigantic skeleton of the Southern right whale, a sample of the flora and fauna of the region and the remains of a Spanish fort destroyed by an Indian raid of Telhueches by the end of XVII century.

Before reaching Piramide to embark, we visit the seal site. The whale watching is done before lunch sailing along the crystal waters of Península Valdés.

The idea is to do the watching once embarked, spend the afternoon on the beach, visit the town, slide down the dunes with sandboards or simply enjoy a good lunch by the sea.

Then we all depart to Puerto Madryn where we can visit this spectacular city with its shopping areas and enjoy a good Welsh tea or just shop around so when the sun sets we return to Las Grutas.
