Overall, how was your trip?

The landscapes of Patagonia are literally other-worldly. When we left the park, my nephew said it was like leaving Jurassic Park--it was so unreal. We saw grey foxes, condors, guanacos, and hawks (not to mention many other birds). The weather is as INTENSE as the beauty...every minute, it changed. The trail, though well-traveled, is not for the faint of heart. As times it was difficult. But never once did we regret the strain or aches. The people we met along the way were diverse and friendly. If we said "hola" one time a day, we said it fifty. it was truly a spirit-lifting trip!

In one sentence, what did you think of Patagonia? Did it live up to your expectations?

Patagonia is MAGICAL. It is intense on so many levels...and it is far greater than what I ever imagined.

Would you visit again?


How was the service that Swoop provided?

Swoop did a wonderful and thorough service from the very first day. I would recommend using their service as it takes a lot of the guess work out of reservations, travel needs, ideas, etc. KUDOS to Tom (UK) and Nikki (Puerta Natales) for their recommendations and at "odd" hours service!

How did you feel about booking directly with our partner(s)?

Our local partner (Nikki) was WONDERFUL. We relied on her quite a bit and she did not let us down!
