Valdes peninsula, on the Atlantic shore, is a nature reserve with a very rich wildlife : whales, penguins, seals, guanacos nandus, foxes... and orcas at some times!

But whatever the season, there’s never a certainty you can see one, so we watched out for hours, paying cards and drinking mate with the guadaparque. In vain. We missed them for a few hours.

Thankfully we’ve seen a whale passing by the coast. And seals, a lot of seals, and penguins.

We went swimming with the sea lions, Sophie even got a kiss from one of them!

There are also a thong of guanacos (some wild lama), nandu (an ostrich like) and some kinds of rabbits and others. Many birds lives in the area too.

In addition to that fauna, lies 2 small salar in the center of the peninsula. They have a pink color because of a small shrimp living inside, the same giving the pink color to the flamingos. That was the highlight of the trip for Fanny, who’s leaving after 2 weeks in Argentina.
