The province of Chubut is one of the largest Patagonian Lands and its touristic point closest to Buenos Aires is the city of Puerto Madryn, 1.382 Kms distant.
Its maritime coastland is one of the richest sites as far as species diversity is concerned. Bird Watching - mainly penguins - happens to be the preferred choice for many visitors. Sea lions, seals, killer whales and the Southern Right Whale are the other main characters of this natural stage.
Adventure activities are also an option: winter activities at centers like La Hoya, trekking, mountain activities, bike tours, canoeing, rafting or paragliding. For those willing to discover the cultural influences of each region, some towns like Trevelin or Gaiman keep almost intact certain features of the Welsh culture.
The tea ceremony, together with the elaboration of traditional cakes, is an experience worth to be “tasted”.
Its national parks, among which outstands the Los Alerces National Park, are suitable for adventure and ecotourism, mainly the observation and bird watching and the wide variety of their rich flora and fauna species.
Tourists are seduced by the Patagonian ancient expresstrain La Trochita, called that way because of the narrow separation between its rails. Its old wooden wagons are ideal to enjoy the circuit that covers part of the southern lands and permits to unveil the region’s unmistakable charm.
