On 14th December 2020 a total solar eclipse passes over central Argentina. On this exciting tour we will not only position ourselves under the line of totality to witness this spectacular celestial event, but also go in search of Argentina’s abundant wildlife. We begin on the shores of the saline lake of Mar Chiquita in the heart of the country, home to flocks of Chilean Flamingoes, Coscoroba Swans, numerous waders and other birds, before heading up into the mountains of the nearby Quebrada del Condorito National Park in search of Andean Condors. We then move to the coast for four nights as we explore Peninsula Valdes, one of Argentina’s top wildlife sites. Here we will visit the huge Magellanic Penguin colony at Punta Tombo and will look for the Orcas that often patrol the coast to the north. The tour is then rounded off beneath the line of totality from where, weather permitting, we hope to be treated to one of the most breathtaking of natural events, a total solar eclipse.
