Jutting out from Patagonia’s Atlantic coast, the landform of the Valdes Peninsula encloses two peaceful bays which have become a natural breeding ground and habitat for a host of marine species and wildlife. An area with one of the most concentrated diverse population of mammals, birds and sea animals, the Valdes Peninsula provides a haven for sea lions, elephant seals, penguins, dolphins and giant Southern Right Whales, and is a must-visit for any wildlife lover visiting Argentina’s shores. The peninsula itself is a swathe of scrub and grasslands, with little to no vegetation or trees to provide shelter for human or animal. This landscape allows for sweeping panoramas of the curving bays and the vast Atlantic ocean beyond.
