Tours in Peninsula Valdes

PLAYA PARDELAS – PLAYA COLOMBO TOUR

 We depart from Puerto Piramides equipped for the journey. As we cycle a few kilometres, we come across with enormous dunes and its contrast with the blue sea that laps the coasts. Our adventure continues in guanaco´s paths, descents through “cañadones” to reach the restingas of Punta Pardelas, where we could see the most beautiful landscapes of our trip, whales a few metres from the coast, fossils of millions of years and natural pools (in summer you can enjoy them doing snorkelling in them). Once we arrive to Playa Pardelas, we will enjoy its tranquil and transparent waters. It is a place that without doubts will surprise you due to have such a beauty in only one place, apart from seeing southern right whales playing, can also appear sea lions and penguins.

SAN JOSE GULF TOUR

 

Going to the north part of Peninsula, we head to San Jose Gulf. Our first stop is at Playa Blanca (named this way due to the amount of clam shells that the sea deposits on its shore). There we will watch different species of birds. After that we will go pass through Playa Larralde, where we will visit the settlement of fishermen or “marisqueros”. An incredible place where a few families develop this activity thanks to what the sea offers to them. We continue to Playa Villarino and Cañadon Encantado, where you could cycle and be aware of the passing of time, through the different traces of geological eras, finding in our way marine fossils, dating of millions of years ago, when the sea covered Peninsula Valdes. Being this a coastal tour, it is the ideal trip to be in company of right whales. We will also visit a small sea lions colony. As we cycle, we will have on one side the coast and on the other the typical Patagonian steppe with lots of guanacos, maras and choiques.
