Experience Patagonia and you will experience a region famed for its austere beauty and profuse wildlife.

The windswept shores Argentina's Valdes Peninsula are home to many marine mammals – notably elephant seals and sealions, plus Magellanic penguins. Between March and April, however, the focus is orcas – Punta Norte is where they spectacularly snatch sealion pups from the shallows – while in October and November southern right whales cavort in the sheltered Golfo Nuevo.
