Getting closer to animals in Peninsula Valdes
Three days around Chubut province which belongs to Argentine part of Patagonia were long enough to see many animals living in the area.
I took a day tour around Peninsula Valdes with Ryan’s Travel. Valdes Peninsula, or Península Valdés in Spanish, is a peninsula on the north east part of Chubut province. It is a nature reserve listed as a Wordl Heritage Site by UNESCO.
The huge major part of the peninsula is just nature and animals. There is just one little village called Puerto Piramides. Then there are three salt lakes (the biggest one is Salina Grande of 40 m deep) and a lot of estancias where sheep are raised.
I so love animals so when I was able to take a couple of photos and videos of them, I was the happiest ever. I hope you will enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed watching them.
I visited Peninsula Valdes on the 3rd February 2012 so the Southern right whales were not there, unfortunately (they appear in Golfo Nuevo and Golfo San Jose there from 15th June to 1st December).
There are more animals living in Peninsula Valdes than those I saw. You can watch dolphins, probably see a puma, orcas, sheep, a lot of birds etc.
