Within this season, we operate this “CLASSIC PATAGONIA” but by the mid of April there are hardly any penguins left in the colony. Therefore, instead we offer an excursion to Chubut River Valley, visiting Gaiman, a typical Welsh colony enclosed in a beautiful landscape.

Discover another impressive natural wonder, the Southern Right Whale, as every winter, 600 of these enormous mammals (the total world population totals no more than 5,000 specimen) make their way into the waters around Puerto Piramide, and enjoy a fascinating boat trip to appreciate this unique spectacle.

Spend one additional night in Ushuaia as the winter season is ideal to enjoy its ski centers. Also, visit the Huskies Valley and sail along the waters of the Beagle Channel. At El Calafate, you will spend just two nights, because the Upsala Glacier navigation is not available during this season.
