Patagonia Ranch and El Pedral Penguin Colony Tour from Puerto Madryn

Patagonia Ranch and El Pedral Penguin Colony Tour from Puerto Madryn

In this full-day tour, you can enjoy the wonderful wildlife that visits Puerto Madryn every year, making this area of the Patagonia, one of the most important for the reproduction and development of marine fauna.

In addition, we will visit a typical Patagonian ranch, ideal to spend the day outdoors, where we will be delighted with a delicious asado (barbecue) of Patagonian lamb. 

The Full Day tour to the countryside and visit to the Penguins Colony "El Pedral" is the perfect excursion for those who want to get a closer encounter with the wildlife that visit the peninsula without traveling many kilometers outside the city.
