Aside from whales, nature and wildlife photography in Valdes Peninsula includes, amongst others species, Orcas, Penguins, Elephant Seals, and Sea Lions, the last of which can be experienced up close swimming or diving with them throughout the year.

To make this documentary, of killer whales hunting offspring of sea lions, National Geographic stayed with us for two weeks. Alejandro Avampini, owner of this hotel and wildlife photographer, collaborated as an assistant in the attack channel in Punta Norte. It is not the only filming group that chooses us, NHK, TBS vision, NTV from Japan among others, have chosen our accommodation to stay.

From September through April the Peninsula Valdes is home to a number of important and large marine animals. Whales abandon the area in December, migrating towards their feeding grounds far from Peninsula Valdes, but many other species remain.

This particular situation puts Puerto Piramides, with its 500 inhabitants, at the heart of the Peninsula Valdes Nature Reserve and World Heritage Site, the epicenter of activity for documentary film crews and nature photographers.
Aside from several colleagues that live in Puerto Piramides and work in the realm of nature photography, the rest of the locals capture some amazing images as well, taking advantage of the good fortune that surrounds them in this unequaled natural environment.

Two of these regulars are Ana Ponce and Belen Etchegaray of FNA (Argentine Nature Photography), who come each and every whale season with groups of amateur nature photographers.

The evenings are shared with colleagues, friends, tourists, whaleboat captains and guides in the several bars and restaurants that are scattered throughout our tiny town. The day’s adventures are shared around the table at night, all a part of the same story. “Guanaco” artisan beer pub and restaurant are one of these meeting places. With pizzas, pasta and a variety of artisan beers on tap and in bottles combined with a warm, inviting and adventurous environment this is one of the places I recommend for nature lovers and wildlife photographers alike.

Before heading off to your room to sleep, I suggest a walk along the beach, with small waves breaking and the occasional breathing of a whale as a background soundtrack and the milky-way blanketing the night sky, bringing to a close a day far from the norm.
