Overall, how was your trip?

The highlights were the beauty of the nature and wildlife We met some very interesting and kind travelers from Germany, South America and North America

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

Patagonia was a magical and unique experience that I will always treasure!

Would you visit again?


How was the service that Swoop provided?

Swoop was great in that they helped guide me to finding the right guided trip in the winter. Without Swoop, planning this trip would have been a lot more tricky! Nothing could have been done differently.

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

Thanks to Swoop connecting us with that company, we had a tremendous tour guide through Chile Nativo,

How was your winter adventure in Torres del Paine?

We had great transportation, Torres del Paine was everything we had hoped for and more. Our guide, Chuma, was fantastic. He knew all about the plants and animals, as well as helped us practice our Spanish along the whole route. The accommodations were generally good--however, Paine Grande did not have any heat for both nights that we were there. This was unfortunate as it was Winter and it was extremely cold! Other than that, the other lodges were great.

Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Patagonia?

Winter time was great for us because we had the park to ourselves and there was no wind at all. It was also great for hiking with our backpacks, because we still got quite hot with the exercise--if it were any hotter, it would have been uncomfortable for us. For those going in winter, I would suggest that they dress as if they are going into the snow--packing layers is crucial, as I would get hot and cold all of the time.
