Puerto Madryn
Unforgettable kayak trip to the sea lions.

Sea lions are fascinating animals. They are not only sleek, energetic and agile but also intelligent and curious; all these characteristics make it particularly interesting to watch them in their natural habitat.Different cultures and people have been using kayaks for centuries as a form of transport on lakes, rivers and oceans the world over, and although it might seem like an outdated way to travel on water, very few crafts can bring you as close to nature as a kayak. As you will see on this tour, there is no better way to observe sea lions than from the safety of this watercraft. As you sit in your kayak and watch the sea lions swim and play in the water, it will feel like the world is moving past you and that there is nowhere else that you would rather be.

“In the footsteps of Eva Perón”.

When thinking of Argentina, one cannot help but think of Evita. As a remarkable person that lead an extraordinary life, Evita's rise from poverty to becoming a major political figure in Argentina that stood for the low-income and working-class people is something magnificent to behold. Even to this day, she is still known as the Spiritual leader of the nation. While visiting sights that played a big part in her life, you will not only see but also be able to build a representation of her life, and as the guide takes you through the history of Eva Peron, you will get a clearer picture of who she was.
