The schedule of the activities offered for your stay will vary according to the weather conditions, the opportunities that may arise to take a watching tour, the number of nights you will stay, the preferences of the guests, among other things. The guide is the one that will decide which activity will be performed each day. During your free time, you may choose to use the swimming pool, the bikes, go to the beach or just go for a walk.
Visit to Punta Ninfas’ lighthouse
Departing from the country house and after driving for only 8 km, we will get close to the typical high cliffs of the Península Valdés coasts. The Punta Ninfas’ lighthouse is located at the south end of the Golfo Nuevo’s mouth, where you will be able to see breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and the gulf, as well. Visiting this place is an excellent programme to contemplate the sunset or the moonrise reflected on the sea.
A guided walk among Magellanic penguins
Every year in September, a growing colony of friendly Magellanic penguins settles in El Pedral. A guide tour among its nests will enable you to know much more about these curious animals. El Pedral keeps a control and cleaning program along its coasts, together with collaborating with the foundation GPS, Global Penguin Society, which monitors the Magellanic penguins’ colony of Punta Ninfas.
Observation of a rookery of elephant seals
The beach at the foot of Punta Ninfas’ cliff is the natural habitat of an important rookery of elephant seals, where they can be observed in small groups throughout of the year. In mid-September, male individuals arrive to ‘mark their territory’ in order to start making up their harems and increasing them. After driving for only 15 minutes from the house, we will arrive at the end of the road leading to the Punta Ninfas’ lighthouse, where we will finally get to a pathway down to the beach. Once on the coast, we will be able to walk along the beach and watch these animals very closely. Please, remember that it is very important not to bother them. Therefore, it is highly recommended to advance slowly in a crouch position, in order to be able to obtain good pictures without making them feel attacked or invaded.
