What to do in Sierra Grande, Patagonia Argentina

To the reservation of fauna Islote Lobos and Isla de los Pájaros: it is a group of islands that is located 50 kilometers from Sierra Grande to the northeast, being united among them when it lowers the tide. In 1977 this fauna reservation is created in order to protecting the remarkable diversity of birds that there nest as well as the varied marine fauna. They stand out the marine wolves of one hair, plovers, flamingos, penguins, cormorans, petrels, blue, ducks, etc.
Travel to the center of the Earth: a walk along 1,500 meters of galleries and underground tunnels of an iron mine. The tourists are provided with Mameluke, helmets and accessories used by the miners. During the journey it spreads a show of light and sound that keep in the visitor the sensation to be an authentic worker of the depths of the Earth.
To the outlet of the stream Salado: this stream is born in the plateau of Somuncuurá and it finishes in the Ocean Atlantic getting wider in a considerable way in its outlet in which has been formed a crab place of unusual proportions visible only when the tide is low.
To the beaches: to the east of Sierra Grande you arrive to a sector of excellent beaches very good for the development of recreational activities. The most important are ‘Playas Doradas’ (that of more infrastructure), ‘Playa de los Suecos’ and ‘Playa de las Casitas’.
