Río Gallegos Things to See and Do

follow us

Rio Gallegos is surprisingly rich in museums, with eight spanning the many facets of its history and culture. Nature lovers can birdwatch along the Reserva Costera Urbana within the city or head out to the country to hike at Laguna Azul, go trout fishing at the many waterways embroidering the landscape or visit the penguins at Cabo Vírgenes.  Punta Loyola is another destination for its boat tours and sport fishing. Historic estancias, like Monte Dinero, offer opportunities to learn about sheep farming, whether on a day trip or by lodging in their hostels.
