Our ambition is to take Wales, the Welsh language and the Urdd worldwide.

 

Annual trips 

Our trips to Patagonia and Hungary are highlights in the Urdd calendar every year. As well as bringing young people together from all over Wales, the trips give our members opportunities to experience different cultures and to develop as individuals from the experiences. Learn more about our trips to Patagonia and Hungary below.

We have a special relationship with this country and since 2008, over 300 young people have visited Patagonia with us.
