The Urdd and Mentrau Iaith Cymru organise an annual visit to Patagonia during October half term.


This project started in 2008 with the first group of young people from across Wales vising Patagonia and the visit has gone from strength to strength. The young people gain new skills, make new friends with Welsh speakers on the other side of the world, do some volunteering work, and take part in the Eisteddfod and much, much more. A unique experience! This opportunity is mainly for year 12 pupils, but if year 13 pupils  are eager to attend, by all means they can present an application form. Next year's visit (2015) is full, but if wish to attend in the future or would like more information, please contact
