Travel through the residential area of Puerto Madryn towards Punta Loma Natural Reserve where you visit a sea lion sanctuary. Young sea lions are seen all year around and from April onwards the area hosts sea lions migrating from Puerto Pirámides.
Your tour continues to Estancia San Guillermo, a typical Patagonian ranch, where you learn about regional flora and fauna and watch a sheep-shearing demonstration. You’ll glimpse how life is lived on the vast Patagonian steppe at this secluded outpost surrounded by endless open countryside. Shy guanacos are kept at the “estancia” as pets, so enjoy this unique opportunity to see them up close.
Enjoy a snack before we depart the ranch.
Before returning to the ship, you visit the Puerto Madryn EcoCentro Museum, the first centre of its kind in Argentina devoted to the study of marine ecosystems.
