Lovely area, saw whales, sea lions, elephant seals, and other wildlife (mara, owls, etc.) Not crowded, seems still unspoiled/not too developed. Many gravel roads.

Very long day and bumpy bus ride, but overall a delightful experience. Don't expect lush growth as this part of Patagonia is more desert with few trees and little vegetation. Our guide, Paula, was a wealth of information! Seeing the Magellan penguins up close was...More
