Punta Norte, Peninsula Valdes

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.
