El Pedral is an exclusive penguin rookery near Puerto Madryn. Available from middle of september to middle of april
We leave the town of Puerto Madryn to drive 70 kmts.crossing the Patagonian steppe to arrive to Punta Ninfas light house, at the south extreme of the golfo Nuevo. On the beaches that surround the important light house for navigators, there are elephant seals colonies.
We keep going to El Pedral, an authentic country house of a Patagonian ranch built at the beginning of the last century. Construction materials and furniture were imported from Europe, sent by ship and discharged directly at the coast of the ranch. The house was inaugurated in 1923 and it still preserve the esthetic and the style of those times.
From there, we go to the colony of Magellanic penguins, close to the main house. Walking among the penguins, led by a guide, we can appreciate the real wild life.
Lunch time: at the barbecue, you can have the characteristic lamb meat with a variety of salads, and the dessert. Beverages, are included, also wine and coffee.
At the afternoon, turists can enjoy the swimming pool, walk around the property, playing bowls and drinking a cup of tea or coffee with the traditional welsh cake.
At 5.30 pm we will be back in Puerto Madryn.
