Explore the warmth of this piece of Wales at the southernmost corner: a calm and vivid town full of stories and flavors. A special place surrounded by a valley, river and wonderful traditions to discover.
The first immigrants to ever set a foot on this land came from Wales. In July 1865 a group of 158 Welshmen fled from Wales to an unknown territory called Patagonia. They landed at the Golfo Nuevo (New Gulf). This is how the cities that today we know as part of the lower valley of the Chubut River had their origin: Rawson, Trelew, Gaiman, Dolavon and 28 de Julio, and later, Puerto Madryn.
Throughout this tour, we will follow the route of the settlers starting at the landing place. You will feel and learn what these brave Welshmen must have felt coming to a desert environment in the middle of Patagonia, at the end of the world, to finally appreciate the beauty of the green pastures along the Chubut River.
As part of this Welsh experience, you will have the opportunity to taste a traditional Tea service in Gaiman and as optional, you can visit the Museum for Paleontology in Trelew
