Ariana’s Full Circuit & Ice Cap Expedition

Ariana is still travelling on a round the world trip, but contacted us in March to let us know how she got on during her stint in Patagonia, during which she Trekked the Full Circuit in Torres del Paine, and embarked on an Ice Cap Expedition. Here’s what she had to tell us…

I had such a great experience that it is hard to find the right words to explain it 🙂

How was your Full Circuit in Torres del Paine?

I had an amazing experience on my Full Circuit in Torres del Paine. The guides were great, very well organised and helpful, always looking after us and making the whole experience delightful. I cannot think of anything that I would change about this trip.

How was your Ice Cap Expedition?

I had a great experience on the Ice Cap Expedition, and the guide was very professional. One thing I would mentions is that I was a little unsure on my route to El Calafate, and I may have appreciated more detailed information on this. Once there however, the operators took care of everything, and did all they could to help me with any equipment I needed to rent.

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

The way in which Swoop handled my trip was a real treat for me. You helped me a lot, and so far it has been one of the best moments of my whole round the world trip.

Do you have any tips for other travellers planning a visit?

The only thing that I would have appreciated, which may helpful to other people visiting Patagonia with limited time on their hands, is some information on the time it takes to travel between places, and how best to go about it. I was a little confused on where to fly from/ to in order to reach certain destinations, and allowed extra time for this unnecessarily, as in reality it was simpler and faster than I expected.

Thanks a lot again for your help and to make my trip to Patagonia a great experience.
