3 Days of Excursions from an eco camp in Torres del Paine

Bob returned in February from a 4-night stay at an eco camp on the edge of Torres del Paine National Park, from which he took various day trips to explore the scenery and wildlife in the area. Here he tells us about his experiences on the trip and in booking through Swoop and our partners…

‘I had a great time and really enjoyed it and have come back refreshed and recharged!


How did Swoop Patagonia do in helping you to plan and arrange your trip?

Luke was great: he was positive, reassuring and knowledgeable, and filled me with confidence about the trip.

What did you think of the eco camp and the accommodation and excursions provided there?

I loved the eco camp! It was beautiful, relaxing and unique, and I got to do 2 out of 3 walks I wanted to.

Is there anything you would have changed about your trip?

It would have been easier if my flights were a little closer together so there would have been less hanging about at the airport.

Overall, what was the highlight of your trip?

All of it was a highlight for me.

Do you have any tips for other people planning a trip?

Just enjoy it!

Did you manage to visit anywhere else in Chile or Argentina?

I only visited Chile this time round as I had been to Argentina before.

Founder and MD

Luke fell in love with Patagonia when he first trekked through the Andes some 15 years ago. In 2009 he founded Swoop Patagonia and since then has trekked, ridden and paddled thousands of miles throughout the region.

Back at home in Bristol he's a dad of three, and a keen trail runner and adventure racer.

On his last visit Luke climbed to within 500m of the summit of Aconcagua and ran a 3 day ultra-marathon around the volcanoes of northern Patagonia.
