Travel through the residential area of Puerto Madryn towards Punta Loma Natural Reserve; the only permanent sea lion colony in the entire Golfo Neuvo. From the cliff-top observation platform, you can enjoy panoramic views overlooking the sea lion breeding ground.
Continue to the Welsh city of Trelew. Founded by Welsh settlers in 1866, Trelew is home to the most important Paleontology Museum in South America.
With four galleries, displaying more than 1,700 fossils, including 12 complete dinosaur skeletons and some of the most significant flora and fauna fossil samples of this region, you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported back to pre-historic Patagonia.
Highlights of the museum are a 150 million year old dinosaur skeleton and a 60 million year-old meiolánidos turtle fossil.
During your visit, you’ll have the opportunity to view a remarkable video depicting the origins of the universe and its evolution. Your return journey takes you through Trelew, en route to the port.
