Peninsula Valdés

In the northern area of Patagonia, along the vast, dry, treeless plateau of the coast, you will find a wonderful array of marine life, birds and Patagonian wildlife such as Guanacos, Rheas, Patagonian hares and armadillos.
From June to the beginning of December you may find hundreds of whales (Ballena Franca) in the Golfo Nuevo, where they mate and give birth. And from September to March, Punta Tombo reserve houses penguins and chicks who are here to breed.

Gaiman, a small town, with old brick houses was built by the Welsh who settled two centuries ago, today it hosts the annual Eisteddifod (Welsh Festival of Arts) in October.
