Peninsula Valdez is one of the finest wildlife reserves in South America and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It provides an outstanding natural habitat for sea lions, elephant seals, fur seals and a variety of birds. Enjoy a brief stop at the small Visitors Center to view exhibits on the flora and fauna of the Peninsula.


Visit Caleta Valdes on the eastern shore, a sheltered bay with a long gravel spit onto which elephant seals and others haul up in the spring. You’ll spend some time here to watch the wildlife from a distance. Nearby, there may be a possibility to view a very small and new penguin colony. Stop to watch one of the peninsula’s major sea lion colonies near Puerto Piramides. A boxed lunch is provided.
