There’s nothing more rewarding than knowing that a client has had a fantastic trip. Thanks for your email, Michael!
Dear Laura,We are just back from our adventure. Thanks for your pre-trip advice and sorting out the Torres leg for us. Thanks too to Charlotte and Luke at Swoop Travel for advice and contacts.We had a great time with decisions, weather and logistics all working out well. We had all sorts of weather but crucially had excellent views of both Torres del Paine and Fitzroy. We also had wonderful hospitality and friendliness in both Chile & Argentina. We did two thirds of the “W”; the rest opened while we were in the park but there was no camping west of the French Valley, transport back was doubtful and we were advised to wear mouth scarfs because of ash poisoning. No thanks!In Fitzroy we climbed Cerro Madsen (1806m due east of Mt Fitzroy) on probably only one of a dozen days when the weather would have allowed it (we are trekkers not climbers). We got a permit and gave it a go on 3rd Feb gaining the north summit. This was one of our highlights amongst a wonderful experience. The crowds were not a problem; it was busy on maybe three half-days but we did Torres late evening and got amazing pictures of Fitzroy as well. Everything worked well ~ we hired a car from El Calafate to do Moreno and, thanks Charlotte, Lautaro hostel and our hosts there were just lovely. Ushuaia was amazing too; we were so pleased we had included it.Thanks again and I can certainly recommend you to anyone thinking about Patagonia.Michael, Ben, Ju & Tony.
Here are a couple of photos that Tony was kind enough to share with us. We hope you like them.
