Ronnie 's Trip:The Original Torres del Paine W Trek
Ronnie 's Trip Date:
26th Nov - 30th Nov 2018
Overall, how was your trip?
Many highlights, but possibly the strange highlight of being woken in the French campsite by thunderous roars from the glacier in the French Valley before trekking to the viewpoint to watch the ice falling. Landscapes spectacular, birds and flowers lovely. People friendly (especially away from the crowded trek on day 1) I’ll tell family and friends that it’s a trek worth doing. Most magical moment... getting to the viewpoint on day 1.
In one sentence, what did you think of Patagonia? Did it live up to your expectations?
Absolutely lived up to expectations and in some ways exceeded them.
Would you visit again?
How was the service that Swoop provided?
Excellent service all round, from picking us up at our B&B to leaving me at the bus station after the trek. Possibly the trip was harder than I expected, especially on day 1. Perhaps I should have taken more time to read the information but I was really not fit enough for that day, having spent the previous 10 days on a cruise ship! Yes, I’d stay with Swoop but I’m unlikely to go back to Patagonia for a few years. Nothing different needed, except for me to get fitter!
How did you feel about booking directly with our partner(s)?
Yes, Chile Nativo an excellent outfit.

How was your W trek in Torres del Paine?
Highlights were views made possible by the trek, especially getting closer to the Glacier in French valley. Yes, Torres del Paine as good as I had hoped for. Excellent guide, Pelin was good company, knowledgeable and her excellent English made for a fun trip. Accommodation very good, both in the refugios and tents. Transport couldn’t have been better.
