Parque Paleontol贸gico Bryn Gwyn - Other Activity Gaiman - Argentina

Located eight kilometers south of Gaiman, Parque Paleontol贸gico Bryn Gwyn is an excellent place to see Patagonian fossils still in their excavation sites. Though the beds are too young to yield dinosaur bones, visitors can view fossils of some interesting creatures like giant anteaters, dolphins, whales, and penguins. It takes roughly 90 minutes to walk the vast, moonscape-like circuit through the park, and guided tours are available. The park also has a visitor center, where guests can get their hands dirty doing some paleontological fieldwork of their own. There is no regular public transportation to the site.

The park is located 8 kilometers south of Gaiman.
