Punta Norte

 

Photo by InterHabit SA

Punta Norte, perched high above the ocean on Argentina's Peninsula Valdes, is a great place to spot Orcas from shore. And it is an ideal spot to observe sea lions and Southern Elephant Seals. Yet a trip to the northeast tip of this World Heritage Site is about more than marine mammals. The journey across the peninsula affords a glimpse at steppe fauna; animals (tinamous, armadillos, cuis, tucu-tucus, gatos del pajonal, southern gray fox, maras, and guanacos), lizards and birds. A ranger station, information center and souvenir shop, selling snacks and drinks, are also found at Punta Norte.
Getting There
 
Punta Norte is situated on the northeastern tip of Peninsula Valdes and is located 72 km (45 mile) from Puerto Piramides on the N3. Of the note, the road is gravel track.
