Declared World’s Heritage by the UNESCO in 1999, in the category of Natural Landscapes, Valdés Peninsula -in the province of Chubut, Argentine Patagonia, is one of the greatest natural parks in the world. In its extension of 1540 sq. miles, it hosts the most varied bird-fauna of the Patagonian Coast; and, during the second half of the year, it is the home of the Southern Right Whale that arrives for mating, reproduction and feeding purposes. Whales, penguins, sea wolves and lions and a great variety of birds and terrestrial fauna comprise the attraction of the peninsula, together with the framing landscape of coast and steppe, a calm intense blue sea and the mythic estancias a bit farther.
