Why we like this camp

  • It's in a serene spot on the Serrano River away from the crowds
  • Deluxe tents are very comfortable with thick, insulated airbeds, multiple duvets and pillows
  • You won't go hungry with a tasty, well-earned three-course dinner and full buffet breakfast to set you up for a day's hiking
  • Wake up to fabulous views of the Paine Massif each day
  • The camp is open all season, from mid-Sept until the end of April

Deluxe tents

Weather-resistant fabric stretched over a metal frame on a raised wooden platform forms the basis of the deluxe tents. You are well protected from the elements, not least of all the Patagonian winds!

Each tent contains a double inflatable mattress that can be split in two to make twin airbeds. These mattresses are extremely thick and insulated so make for comfy beds. You are provided with several warm duvets and pillows.

Each tent also comes with a torch lamp, bath towels and toiletries.

Food & drink

Don't let the fact that all the food is prepared and cooked in a single tent lead you to believe that it will be basic. On the contrary, dinner is a mouth-watering three-course fare that will go down a treat after a long day's hiking. Expect local dishes accompanied by local wines, not to mention the odd pisco sour.

Breakfast is a varied buffet consisting of eggs, meats, cheese, bread, cereals, jam, tea, coffee and more. Lunch items are provided in the morning so that you can make up your own packed lunch to take with you on the trek, exactly as you like it.

Meals are served in a large dining dome with wooden tables and benches and a window which looks out towards the Paine Massif.

Bathroom facilities are approximately 50 metres from the deluxe tents in a permanent shower block. The bathrooms are separated into male and female and have hot showers and sit down toilets.

A generator runs in the morning and in the evening. There are power points near your own tent (not inside) where you can charge your devices and also in the dining tent.

The airbeds are extremely comfortable - I slept like a log - and the quality of the food is incredible! My one tip would be to take a headtorch.

What our customers think of Serrano Camp

Our two tour guides, Carla Paz and Nacho were AMAZING and they truly loved sharing their knowledge of the park and their upbringings in Chile/Puerto Natales. We were beyond happy to have had two guides who were so energetic and informative throughout the whole time and we really got to know each other. Every single thing was planned out for us, from the transportation, to lodging, lunches, and delicious meals back at the camp. We are so happy that we chose Swoop and we would definitely work with them again in the future. Read the full review

We had dinner with our guide and driver at the Serrano camp – we laughed and shared stories by the fire. The food and beverages were great and the company was even better. I was so pleasantly surprised to meet so many people who spoke English and translated for us. Our Chile Nativo guide was AMAZING – his name is Vincenzo. He has so much passion and enthusiasm for Patagonia – the land, flowers, trees, animals, food, etc. I feel so lucky that we had him. Read the full review
