From Puerto Madryn you travel across the Patagonian steppe to the quaint town of Trelew, home of the Palaeontology Museum. The museum is the most important of its kind in South America. View an exhibition tracing from when life began on the planet to the period of early man, followed by a documentary both interesting and entertaining.
In July 1865, more than 150 Welsh settlers sailed on the ship Mimosa from Liverpool to southern Patagonia to start an overseas Welsh settlement in Argentina. They chose this remote location envisioning a New Wales in South America, dedicated to preserving Welsh culture in a foreign land. Today, several quaint, traditional towns showcase the preservation of this distinct heritage.
After the stop in Trelew the tour continues to Gaiman, another small town settled by Welsh immigrants. Their descendants still preserve Welsh traditions not only evident in the architectural style of the town but by religion, music and language. Here you enjoy a typical Welsh tea service while serenaded by a local choir.
