Life before Swoop

After many years guiding through all of Patagonia, but mainly in Torres del Paine National Park, I decided that I wanted to step aside from the endless nights on the trail and use my strengths to settle down and work on the logistics side of things. I jumped right into operations and sales working for some of the same companies that I guided for so many years.

Apart from hiking and trekking, I love playing music and singing, rock climbing, horseback riding, cooking, and knitting.

My Patagonia experience

With 8 years of guiding in the area, and making overland trips, I was able to visit all the highlights from the north to the south of Patagonia. I have been able to trek around every corner of the Magallanes region in addition to other areas like the Aysén region and Argentinean Patagonia.

My guiding years were memorable and I met many amazing travelers from all over the world. Now, my goal is to help plan amazing adventures for travelers wishing to visit Patagonia and show them every detail they need to really feel and enjoy this special place.

Why I love Patagonia

Patagonia is not only home for me, it is also a unique place in the world where you feel really tiny and you can embrace the wildness of nature with all your senses.

From the vast pampas, the incredible clouds, the guanacos, pumas and woodpeckers to the strong winds and the deep blue glaciers, this place always makes you speechless and will impress you, even if you have been there many times before.

What our customers think of Isidora

The most valuable quality of a tour operator to me is if the representatives have been to the destination and have personally seen the properties they are suggesting. I was a travel agent, so I know the value of experiencing a place and the properties first hand. Read the full review

Isidora did a great job organizing this trip. She was always willing to jump on a call with me when I had questions. I was reluctant to use another company. It was everything we wanted and more. Very impressed with Swoop!!! Read the full review
