Peninsula Valdes & the Atlantic Coast

Luxury Holidays to Peninsula Valdes & The Atlantic Coast

Remember that extraordinary footage of killer whales sliding up the shore to catch seal pups, narrated by David Attenborough in the BBC's Trials of Life series? That was all filmed on the dramatic Peninsula Valdes in Patagonia, a very justified member of the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • The entire peninsula is fascinating but the highlight has to be the aquaplaning killer whales chasing seal pups up the beach
  • In season this is one of the best places on earth to see southern right whales in any numbers

Our guide to holidays in Peninsula Valdes & the Atlantic Coast

The good news is that there's even more to the Peninsula Valdes region than orcas, with the coastline a breeding area for the endangered southern right whale, and home to important populations of sealions and vast elephant seals.

All this on a 1,400 square mile peninsula that juts out abruptly from Northern Patagonia into the South Atlantic, with a diverse coastline of cliffs, dunes and lagoons that have proved particularly conducive to large marine mammals. Onshore there are also four-legged mammals aplenty as well, with guacano and mara in abundance.
