Tours with Sheepdog Demonstrations

Humans first domesticated sheep thousands of years ago, raising them for their meat, milk, and wool. And for almost as long, shepherds and farmers have trusted “man’s best friend” to help them herd their flocks – a time-honored tradition still practiced today.

On five of our tours – Scotland: Highlands and Islands, Enchanting Ireland, Patagonia Explorer, New Zealand Adventure, and Exploring Australia & New Zealand – our guests have the opportunity to watch working sheepdogs in action.

Patagonia Explorer

Join us in Patagonia, the unspoiled wilderness at lands’ end, shared by Chile and Argentina. Here, the Torres del Paine massif presides over rugged plains, and ice-blue glaciers speckle the sea. As we visit two breathtaking national parks in this remote region, we experience nature at its purest, up close and unfettered. And a stay in Buenos Aires adds zest to our small group journey.
