  • fee it's six hundred fifty pesos for international visitors three hundred and

  • thirty-four Argentines and one hundred if you're from this province from chubut

  • boat so not bad the landscapes have been really cool so far we're driving through

  • Patagonian steppe which is basically kind of flat dry arid land the vegetation

  • it's kind of like small shrubs and bushes and this is because we are

  • surrounded by ocean so the air is very salty they were telling us here that the

  • only trees that grow here are around the estancia's and they've been planted and

  • they also have to be watered so yeah it's been a really cool Drive so far

  • we've seen guanacos which I'm loving we got to see them jumping fences so

  • they're very agile so yeah this is the landscape we are surrounded by and right

  • now we've just stopped at a museum so we're gonna go check it out there's also

  • a look at a point we can climb so that is our first official stop of the day

  • central ABC fantasy east no godless emoji no is an interpretation Center

  • located right at the entrance of peninsula valdes they have different

  • displays that showcase a local flora and fauna and it's a great place to get a

  • quick introduction to the peninsula here we saw the skeleton of a southern right

  • whale and the killer whale it was a quick but informative stop and then we

  • talked back on the bus and continued on our drive

  • alright guys so we have now made it to Punta North it's a bit windy out here

  • but we have come to see elephant seals and sea lions we can only view them from

  • a cliff because they are protected species but they're down at the beach

  • we're gonna use Sam's lens to get a better look at them another thing to

  • mention it kind of sound like sheep they're making quite a bit of noise down

  • there and they sound just like sheep

  • seeing as it was almost lunchtime we then drove to estancia San Lorenzo where

  • the in-house restaurant specializes in Patagonian lamb

  • so it is lunchtime right now and we are eating at estancia san lorenzo so we

  • placed our order for the main we're having menu de campo

  • yes is a country menu basically it comes with lamb salad and bread we do have a

  • bread basket already in front of us we've also ordered two empanada with

  • meat they also had competition which is tomato cheese and we have some wine red

  • wine sure cheers to that make their own wine here you can actually buy a bottle

  • of it for ten of US dollars oh I did not know that and the quality is really good

  • hungry although walking around okay so I'm

  • gonna try the meat empanada I think they're Carne empanadas of advance

  • yes nice big and plump

  • the piping hot I've just been freshly made we're

  • certainly taste like that tons of meat inside which is really juicy it's a

  • perfect way to start a meal kind of empanadas if you haven't had them in

  • Argentina are like kind of the perfect appetizer for you you can also turn them

  • into a proper snack or meal themselves q3 for four or five of them it's a real

  • it's a filling meal for Sherriff's all the time so we've got mixed salad lots

  • of different ingredients tomatoes cabbage carrots carrots before the meat

  • arrived our guide explained that the lamb bog peninsula valdes has a very

  • unique flavor due to the salinity in the air which permits the vegetation and is

  • then consumed by the sheath this in turn makes the meat a bit more salty or at

  • least that's what we were told either way it was a great meal and now the lamb

  • has arrived we have a mix of different cuts of meat yes as you can see here on

  • this massive ladder does it everything a little piece so we can try

  • how is it very nice juicy tender and also got these little bones these ribs I

  • believe don't just get in there get in there

  • that's how you do it tasty very very nice and then for dessert we shared a

  • delicious flan with dulce de leche

  • now guys it is time to see the penguin

  • the shores of estancia San Lorenzo are home to the largest Magellanic penguin

  • colony in the world with an estimated 600,000 penguins during peak season

  • we are now walking down to the beach but all around this penguins are just

  • marching going about their business they're not scared of humans there's a

  • trail marked by white stones that weaves through the penguin colony one thing to

  • keep in mind is that penguins always have the right of way and that visitors

  • have to keep at least a metres distance from them we walk through the colony and

  • observe their nests which are dug into the ground typically under shrubs and

  • bushes where they can get a little bit of shade

  • look at this guy's thousands of penguins all along the beach

  • back on the bus guzzling water what did you think of the Penguins Oscar's out

  • there well the pingas were fantastic it was so

  • cool to see them kind of in their natural environment like this it's

  • really the first experience of this kind I mean when we saw them in South Africa

  • I mean cheers they were in their natural environment but I felt this was a much

  • more like quieter smallest yeah just there's fantastic if you haven't by the

  • thousands here in South of Sarah you know I hate by the water

  • after visiting the Penguins we hopped back in the van and continued to the

  • seaside town of Puerto Piramides this this is the only town on the whole

  • peninsula and the place we would be calling home for the next few nights
