How to get to Birds Island from Puerto Madryn?

The Bird Island Reserve is located on Route 2 after entering the Valdes Peninsula. A 7 km from the booths where you paid the entrance, there is a roundabout. The first access is to the Visitor Center. A museum can take a screenshot of the region and see an amazing and complete skeleton of a southern right whale. By continuing the roundabout follow the route to Puerto Piramides, 17.3 mi ( 28km ) later and the rest of the Valdes Peninsula.

The third output and the last is access, leading to a well-maintained 3.1 mi ( 5 km) gravel road to the Bird Island Reserve. If you continue the circle, the roundabout comes back to Puerto Madryn, Trelew or Route 3.

From Puerto Madryn are about 44 mi ( 71 km ). Driving on gravel involves not going more than 37 mph (60 km / h ) and not touching the brake when cornering. Inside Peninsula Valdes, there is no internet sign, except near Puerto Piramides.

Once you have entered the gravel road, after the roundabout, start enjoying the different views of the Birds Island. The road is in zigzag and allows you to have different perspectives. Even if you stop the car and you emerge from some hill, you can get very interesting images. In the reserve, you will find a small museum, a viewpoint with prismatic, that allows you to see the island with an important closeness. Follow a walkway with some explanatory signs and the replica of the San José Fort Chapel. Also, the park rangers will tell you details of the flora fauna and history of the place.
