Peninsula Valdés & The Whales.

Peninsula Valdés, on the Atlantic coast of Chubut, is an austere, wind-scorched province which holds vast sheep farms, salt lakes and one of South America’s most spectacular nature reserves.

The area is a paradise for visitors interested in marine life. Its shores are colonised by penguins, sea lions, dolphins, orcas, elephant seals and – between June and December –a large population of migrating Southern Right whales. Inland, the diversity of fauna is no less impressive, with maras, guanacos, armadillo, rheas and more than 180 bird species.

We will take you off the beaten track, away from the coach and boat-loads of tourists and out on the open seas, kayaking with whales or snorkeling or scuba-diving with dolphins. We have selected three wonderful properties, ranging from the rustic and cosy to a private cliff-top retreat overlooking one of Argentina’s wildest coastlines.
