Described by the New York Times as “your own private Galapagos,” the little village of Bahia Bustamante allows you the opportunity to explore working ranches, see a wide variety of bird species and marine wildlife and enjoy unforgettable sunsets. Combined with the southern right whales of Peninsula Valdes, swimming with sea lions and numerous opportunities to walk between penguins, this tour offers the chance to understand how pioneers arrived in this remote land looking for a better and peaceful place and also gives you the opportunity to see the unique wildlife that is found in this corner of the world.

Say Hueque Terms & Conditions


The climate ranges from subtropical to subpolar. The north has hot, humid summers and dry, mild winters; the central regions are hot and sometimes stormy in summer, cool in winter; the south has warm summers and cold winters with some snowfall at higher elevations. The central coastline and the Río de la Plata estuary, which includes Buenos Aires, are best avoided from May until August, when the rains are heavy. If you’re in the wine-growing Cuyo region or the western Pampas, pack layers for variable temperatures. A hot, dry wind - The Zonda - occasionally roars down from Andean heights, blowing for several hours, and can be followed by temperature drops.
