Overall, how was your trip?

Our visit was memorable, a mixture of city/town life and the great outdoors. Just moosying around Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales at our leisure, either taking in the museums or the varied bars and cafes, to get a feel for the culture and history was so rewarding. Then there was the Torres big circuit, the challenge of the weather and the spectacular scenery....where would one begin - just do it and live the experience? And then while you are enjoying the scenery, there is the wildlife to watch out for, whether this be for the birding - which if you lucky and knowledgeable about is great, or the elusive puma - and yes, we saw one! Of course there is then the new found friendships;- fellow hikers on your 'tour', other hikers as the sites and in our case the exceptional guides and support staff. Yes, we had some moments....cold, wet, thigh deep snow and more rain but hey what are waterproofs for :).

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

An outstanding place, so much to do and not enough time to even scratch the surface. Our holiday was very memorable, for so many reasons.

Would you visit again?


How was the service that Swoop provided?

We really should have used Swoop more, we get some excellent hints and tips but really left our trip a bit late in organising to get more from our available time. Tom was superb, could not ask for a better service, and would certainly speak with Tom more before planning a trip again.

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

Chile Nativo were a perfect fit for us, the communications were excellent and we were 100% confident that we were going to be in good and capable hands.

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

Give your self time to plan the trip, and consult with swoop to obtain an itinerary to match your expectations. If you are doing one of the hikes, the local joke is wear three layers of gortex.........
