Nada returned in February from a W Trek in Torres del Paine. Here she tells us about her experiences on her trip and in booking with Swoop…
How were Swoop Patagonia?
Swoop were very quick to reply to emails and provided very helpful information!
Did you enjoy your 5 day W Trek itinerary?
On the first day of our 5 day W Trek I would have preferred if we walked a little more than two hours, for example it might have been nice to walk into the park (rather than travelling in by bus), or to start very early in the morning on one of the days so that we could have seen the sunset/ escape the crowds. I understand however that such alterations would probably depend on the preferences of the other people in the group as well.
How were your guides on the trip?
Victor was a chilled & a nice guy. He was able to provide very good information about Flora & Fauna, you could tell he knows the area well. There were a few moments where I got the feeling he has been doing it for a very long time and is a little bit fed up with it…
Did you manage to visit anywhere else in Chile or Argentina?
Yes, I had another two weeks to travel in Chile.
Do you have any tips for other people planning a trip?
You need to book bus ticket in advance – luckily Swoop and their partners in Torres del Paine told me that and booked everything for me! That was a great service!
