Flat and windswept Patagonian expanses meet the dramatic Atlantic coastline at the Peninsula Valdes. Guanaco, rhea and vizcacha roam the wild steppes, while sea lions, elephant seals, orca and seabirds inhabit the coastline and shallow waters. Southern right whales frequent the sea here between August and November, and from October to March Magellanic penguins can be seen in large colonies at places such as San Lorenzo or Punta Tombo. Stay in the town of Puerto Madryn or at a former estancia on the peninsula itself. Alternatively, travel further down the wild coastline to stay at a remote lodge such as Bahia Bustamante.

The main airport is in Trelew, home to a small paleontological museum and one of a number of towns founded by Welsh immigrants in the 1800s. Travelling inland from Trelew, the lower Chubut river valley features small towns such as Gaiman, renowned for its Welsh agricultural heritage and traditional teahouses as well as its annual Eisteddfod (Welsh festival of arts) and the fossils in the nearby Bryn Gwyn paleontological park.
