... Only difference is that here everything is just as nature made it, no pathways, no railings, loose stones and sand that moves when you step on it, so we had to be a little more careful.
Elephants seals prove to be quite cool creatures. Big and seemingly lazy, but when they do move, they move very fast. And in the ocean they are some of the fastest swimmers apparently. Our guide told us to stay a little away from them, so we don’t disturb them too much. We ...

We were back in Puerto Piramide by lunch as we needed fuel and empanadas. The Peninsular Valdez was a great experience – so glad we visited.
Off now into Welsh Patagonia and a lovely drive into Puerto Madryn to visit the very spot where the first ...
