Highlights of Full Day Tour To The Countryside And Visit To The Penguins Colony El Pedral

In this full day tour, we will be able to enjoy very closely the wonderful fauna that visits Puerto Madryn every year, making this sector of Patagonia one of the most important for the reproduction and development of marine fauna.

In addition, we can visit a typical Patagonian Estancia, an ideal place to spend the day outdoors, where we will be delighted with a delicious Patagonian lamb on the grill.

This countryside day and visit to the ``El Pedral`` penguin colony is the perfect excursion for those who want to know the fauna that visits the peninsula without having to travel so many kilometers outside the city.

Details of Day Tours

After getting picked up by our comfortable bus from the meeting point in Puerto Madryn around 8.30 am. We’ll then travel around 75km through the Patagonian outback until we get to the southern end of the Gulf Nuevo where you will see the lighthouse of Punta Ninfas, valuable reference for sailors entering to the Gulf.

From the surrounding beaches and rocks, you’ll see elephant seals and sea lions breeding and going about their daily lives.

We’ll 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.
