Nobody knows more...
Who are we?
Welsh Patagonia is a travel company based in Esquel in Patagonia and specialising in personalised tours of Welsh Patagonia for visitors with an interest in both the history of the Welsh in Patagonia, as well as its dramatic scenery, geology, palaeontology, natural wonders and wildlife.
Our emphasis is on sharing our knowledge and friends, seeing our beautiful Patagonia and having lots of fun.
The company is owned by Jeremy Wood, a well known international expert and author about the Welsh in Patagonia, and his wife Cristina, whose great grandparents emigrated from South Wales to Patagonia in the early 1870s, where their descendants have lived ever since. Their son Tomos, aged 7, is in training to become a guide!
What do we do?
Firstly, we advise. Whatever you want to know, just ask. We are the experts and nobody knows more. Whatever your question, there is no obligation. We are always delighted to help. If you would like to come to Welsh Patagonia, we can arrange all or part of your trip and recommend and organise a complete itinerary (hotels, transport, meals, meetings with the Welsh community, excursions and so on), but expect you to arrange your own flights.
We will give you all the known flight options (which change quite regularly – see the section Getting There) as well as contacts in your country with whom they can be booked. If you would just like us to make recommendations for where to go, stay, meet etc., just ask. If you would like to visit other parts of Argentina, we can also arrange this through our relationships with other reputable travel companies in Argentina.
Our company was founded in 2006 and, since 2007, has supplied all the itineraries to Teithiau Tango in Aberystwyth for its tours to Welsh Patagonia. As well as devising all the itineraries, Welsh Patagonia actually organised all the tours to Welsh Patagonia for clients of Teithiau Tango. As well as the organisation of the tours, Welsh Patagonia also provided all the guiding services for the tours. Welsh Patagonia no longer works with Teithiau Tango, who now works with Argentine travel agents based in Buenos Aires.
Being based Patagonia means lower customer costs and risks
