Fancy a cuppa?
The Gwyl y Glaniad festival Puerto Madryn celebrates the anniversary of the day the ship Mimosa landed in 1865 near where Madryn is today. This part of Patagonia is home to several Welsh long standing settlements with their famous tea houses the Princess of Wales visited here to give it the royal seal of approval. A comfortable base to begin a trip around the amazing landscape incorporating some of the best views in the world the Perito Moreno Glacier and El Calafate or when crossing into Chile at Torres Del Paine.
Slalom in the summer
If you are a ski fan and don’t want to be restricted to just getting your fix in the winters at home the Chilean Andes have opposite seasons to the UK so things are just picking up here. Enjoy a tour around the best powder hotspots including El Colorado and Valle Nevado and don’t forget to bring the marshmallows for your hot chocolate.
A more peaceful Cayes
The weather at this time of year is great but the cayes are much less crowded than at other times giving you chance to soak up the Caribbean as it should be in a slow and relaxed fashion. Go on a snorkelling tour seeing a multitude of aquatic life – nurse sharks, rays, turtles and hundreds of species of fish. For those that have their dive licences dive Belize’s most famous attraction the Blue Hole or just view it from the national park.
