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.

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 guanaco and mara in abundance.
