An exciting new travel opportunity will see a group of Wales YFC members travel to Patagonia as part of the organisation’s International Travel Programme.
Members between 18 & 30 years of age will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Patagonia ahead of the 150th anniversary in 2015 of when the first Welsh settlers completed their voyage to Patagonia.
The tailored itinerary produced by Teithiau Tango includes visits to Puerto Madryn and the landings museum, to Trelew and to Ysgol yr Hendre and Capel Moriah. There will be the opportunity to take part in the Trelew Eisteddfod and the Gorsedd ceremony, as well as a Cymanfa Ganu in Gaiman and whale watching in Puerto Madryn, finished off with a visit to the famous Liniers Cattle Market in Buenos Aries.
The Wales YFC International Chairman, Mark Powell explains,
“This is a new opportunity for Wales YFC members to travel in the footsteps of the first welsh settlers in Patagonia. Before commencing our journey we will be carrying out different fundraising events to support our trip in addition to tracing our family trees in search for descendants who may have made that brave voyage in 1865. This unique trip will forge new connections between the young farmers of Wales and Patagonia as well as experiencing the Welsh culture and heritage of Y Wladfa.”
