Tour Details

With your small group of no more than 12 guests, you will drive southeast with your bilingual guide. You will travel for approximately one hour over gravel roads to reach a private estancia where the first stop will be to see elephant seals. According to the group's physical abilities, the guide will choose the path to get into the elephant seal colony and as close as possible.

The place is almost untouched, so we have to strictly follow the guide's instructions. To have the closest encounter with the animals as possible, some times we have to sit down, lay on the ground or maybe drag ourselves to get inside the colony without been noticed. You will have magical moments watching how they molt their fur, scratch themselves, fight for winning females, and generally interact with one another.

We will then drive to the northern sector of the farm, were a new Magellan penguin protected colony exists. The colony is growing every year, and there are approximately 200 nests now. We wil ldrive as far as possible, until we have to walk as there are nests along both sides of the road. We will continue walking until we reach the private beach of the farm, where we will interpret the ecosystem of this Golfo Nuevo┬┤s special place. You will also be able to see a South American Tern colony. Sometimes Sea Lions, Cormorants, Giant Petrels and other animals can be spotted as well.

Finishing the safari activities we will go to the estancia's main lodge, where the barbecue is waiting for us in the quincho area. There are washrooms and a relaxed atmosphere to rest a little.
