The Birds and Wildlife of Patagonia

Tufted Tit-tyrants

From Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, Patagonia offers the opportunity to see the Southern Hemisphere’s whales, sea lions, pumas, penguins, and a unique set of birds. Then, there are the glaciers and landscapes of the Southern Andes which are spectacular and easy to access. We will start the journey in the capital, Buenos Aires, and continue down through the rugged Valdez Peninsula, the glaciers of southeastern Argentina, dip into Chile’s wondrous Torres del Paine National Park with its population of protected pumas, and finish at the southernmost post office in the world, Ushuaia. Darwin spent a year of his life traveling Patagonia on his way to the Galapagos Islands, its wild past contributing to the development of his theory of evolution. We’ll view mammals of the land and sea, as well as most of the iconic birds of the Southern Cone, ending up in Darwin’s Beagle Channel.
