Description

Cruise through the charming Chubut Valley to scope out the farmhouses in old Welsh villages, head out to sea on a dolphin-watching excursion, and explore the artifacts and fossils at a paleontology museum. With an experienced guide to lead you, visit Trelew, Rawson, Gaiman, and Dolovan.

Get picked up directly outside your Puerto Madryn hotel in the morning and enjoy the scenic drive to the port town of Rawson. When you arrive, head to the dock and climb aboard a spacious vessel for your dolphin-watching adventure. Leave the harbor and sail out to open water, where you can get up-close looks at white-and-black Commerson's dolphins as they swim and leap around your boat. Listen to your guide share information about their behavior, snap a few photos, and then head back to shore.

Continue your day learning about the creatures of the Chubut River's past with a stop at the Museum of Paleontology Egidio Feruglio. Explore artifacts and exhibits that chronicle Patagonia's natural history, see dinosaur fossils, watch a documentary about the Big Bang, and check out the inner workings of the museum's expansive laboratory.

Cap off your day with visits to the Welsh-started settlements of Gaiman and Dolovan. Stroll down quiet streets lined with quaint chapels, learn about the history of flour milling in the area, and find out brought Welsh settlers here in droves during the late 19th and early 20th century. As evening settles in, hop back in your ride and cruise back.
