After a road of 180 km from Puerto Madryn of which 75 km, are gravel or just 80 km from Puerto Piramides, you reach the Punta Norte Reserve, within the protected area. It opens its doors from 8 AM, until sunset.
There are no buses that cross the gravel roads of Peninsula Valdes, if you are without a vehicle you have to arrive with the excursions that depart from Puerto Madryn or Puerto Piramides.
In the Orcas season, much of the adventure is to travel the roads of Peninsula Valdes. And if you are a fan, like most of those who come this season, you will go 2 or more times to Punta Norte and if you think that in your case it is not like that, I assure you that the social environment makes you feel that you have to go back to go the next day, or you’re going to miss something important. If you stay in Puerto Piramides, you would pay the entrance to the Reserve only once, given that the town is within the Peninsula Valdes and you would travel 200 km less every day !!
