Wales Tour to Argentina
Welsh Rugby fans enjoy an amazing South American rugby tour experience to Argentina.
Argentina sits in the upper echelons of many aspirational travel ‘places to visit’ through its wonderful year-round climate (think 19 degrees in their winter), sumptuous beef steaks, deep and fruity Malbec wines and passionate rugby fans who adore the traditions of the oval game. In June 2018, MSG’s Laura Dennehy travelled as Tour Manager with our passionate Wales fans that took in the capital – Buenos Aires – and the cities of Puerto Madryn (Patagonia), Mendoza, San Juan and Santa Fe.
Wales’s last visit to Argentina in 2006 yielded a victory and a loss in this passionate continent. This time the tourists went one better, beating the Pumas convincingly to leave South America with a 2-0 series victory.
A great win for Wales. Next stop: Patagonia 🛫🍷🏉🇦🇷 pic.twitter.com/ovenaiwiCL

Sightseeing in Argentina
In between matches, the group visited key sights and landmarks including:
- Gaucho Experience in Buenos Aires
- Iguazu Falls: simply breathtaking
- Wine Tasting in Mendoza
- Recoleta Cemetary in Buenos Aires
- Tango show in Santa Fe
- Whale watching in Puerto Madryn
- Engaging with Welsh schools in Trelew, Patagonia
“MSG certainly covered all bases and we saw and experienced so much of Argentina in the limited time available.”
