Olivia Reynolds 's Trip:The Classic Full Circuit
Olivia Reynolds 's Trip Date:
4th Jan - 14th Feb 2018
Overall, how was your trip?
Gorgeous landscape, fantastic guides, great food (which I certainly wasn't expecting).
In one sentence, what did you think of Patagonia? Did it live up to your expectations?
Would you visit again?
How was the service that Swoop provided?
N/A - I was only every interested in the one trip. Booking was relatively efficient. The only improvement I would suggest is making the availability numbers more accessible - there was a lot of to and fro to understand which dates were/were not available.
How did you feel about booking directly with our partner(s)?
Chile Nativo was fantastic.

Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Patagonia?
The full circuit is not an easy hike. I.e. it's not a long walk. It is entirely possible I did not read available information in advance as I tend to skip over fitness requirements but I think important that potential visitors understand that not only fitness but a certain fortitude is required for this trip. High winds, skree, scrambling, fording rivers - all with your pack - can be tiring even for those who are fit.

A significant advantage of Chile Nativo's service is the low group numbers. We saw other organised groups on the trail that had 16+ members which has a big impact on trip dynamics and pace.
