Advice and Inspiration

Whether you're interested in booking a single hike or the holiday of a lifetime, we'll first spend some time talking about your ideas for your trip. We love helping people plan adventures to Patagonia, and with over 15 year's experience we can help you decide when to travel, where to go and what to see. We'll provide advice and inspiration and together, we'll help you choose the perfect trip or craft your dream itinerary.

Two Ways to Book

  1. Directly with one of our partners:

    Booking directly with our partners in Patagonia is great for independent travellers arranging most of their trip themselves. We’ll talk about your dreams for your trip, listen to your plans and suggest the right activity, lodge or cruise for you, then introduce you to the partner we think will suit you best. You’ll benefit from our advice and experience, and pay exactly the same as if you’d found the partner yourself. Find Out More.

  2. Design and book a tailor-made trip:

    With 15 years' experience in Patagonia, we’re experts at creating itineraries. We'll work with you to design a 2-3 week - or longer - holiday based on your exact requirements, whether that's helping you see the highlights of Patagonia or creating something more bespoke. We'll be on hand to help you before, during and after your trip; from the moment we've booked it all for you to the moment you return home. Find Out More.

What our customers think

Four Types of Adventure

You can arrange your trip in a way that suits you: we'll help you plan and arrange a tailor-made itinerary, and then we'll book it for you, or we'll help you find the perfect local partner in Patagonia, and you can book directly with them.

1. A guided, multi-day activity


A multi-day activity trip, such as a hiking, kayaking or horse-riding trip, can be arranged to fit in with the rest of your plans. Guided trips are typically for small groups of no more than 8 people, but private trips and self-guided trips can be arranged too. We can help solo travellers and couples find like-minded groups to join.

2. A hotel or ship-based trip


We can help you choose the perfect hotel, lodge or eco camp from which to explore the national parks by day and enjoy fine food and wine by night. Expeditionary cruises are also a great way to immerse yourself in Patagonia’s scenery and wildlife from a comfortable base.

3. A group tour


Group Tours are fixed-itinerary trips of around 15 people. With set departure dates and prices making them easy to plan around, they can be either a simple and sociable way for solo travellers or anyone on a budget to fit the highlights of Patagonia into a short time frame, or a great core to a larger adventure. We can help you find the right group tour for you.

4. A 2-3 week holiday

We can help you arrange a holiday in a way that suits you:

1. By helping you choose several multi-day activity trips: We can help you choose several multi-day activity trips, such as hiking, kayaking or horse-riding trips, and integrate them into your own itinerary.

2. By helping you see the highlights of Patagonia: If you're looking to see the unmissable highlights of Argentina and Chile, we'll help you piece together the perfect itinerary.

3. By planning and arranging an entire bespoke itinerary for you: Whatever you want to see and wherever you want to go, we'll help you create a customised itinerary - including flights, buses and accommodation - doing the hard work so you don’t have to.


Swoop Says

How We Make Our Money

We help our partners to market themselves and their trips, activities, and accommodation to the international market; so when we introduce you to them and you book a trip, they pay us a small commission, and when you arrange your tailor-made trip with us, we are able to negotiate better rates with our partners and charge a small mark-up, to cover our time. Either way, the price you pay through us is the same as you would pay by going direct, and you'll benefit from our free, impartial and expert advice.

Why Swoop?

We're not your average travel agent. We're Patagonia ambassadors, and want you to discover Patagonia because it's one of our favourite place in the world. Here's why we're different:

  1. We know Patagonia

    We only help people with extraordinary Patagonian and Polar experiences, because we feel passionately about these regions. We lived and worked in Patagonia long before our Swoop days, and each of our specialists still visits every year.

  2. We work with a network of over 100 local partners

    We cover the whole of Patagonia - no other travel agent offers you such variety. We know all our partners' specialisms, strengths, and weaknesses and we can match them up with your needs and budget.

  3. We'll help you arrange your trip in a way that suits you

    You can book your entire, personalised trip with us; we can recommend activity partners so you can book trips directly with them; we can help you choose and book a lodge or hotel from which to explore, or we can match you up with a group tour.
