We sail through the calm waters of Caleta Malaspina to approach the islands of the Vernacci archipelago, home to sea lions (4,000 individuals in breeding season), Magellanic Penguins (100,000 individuals) and colonies of seabirds, characterized by their variety of species and number of individuals: Cormorants, Petrels, steam ducks, skuas, plovers, gulls and terns, among others

Accommodation in the houses of Estepa
A trip to the past, no less than 60 million years ago. Going to the Petrified Forest involves a combination of 4×4 and trekking to cover it all. It is located 30 km from the Lodge, within the same property. The landscape is impressive: a lunar desert full of fossil logs; wood turned into hard rock. Amazing! In addition, we can see guanacos, choiques, maras and other inhabitants of the steppe.</ p>

Accommodation in the houses of Estepa
Just 15 minutes from the Lodge, this island is home to a colony of Magellanic Penguins. At low tide the island is attached to the mainland and we walk across to enjoy the privilege of feeling surrounded by hundreds of penguins, their chicks and their nests. A unique experience! On the way it is also common to see choiques, maras, foxes and piches or furry ones.
