What feedback or advice do you have for Swoop and our future Patagonian travellers?
Having Swoop plan the trip was essential. We would not have been able to duplicate what they did for us with their knowledge of the area. As two young, active people, the excursions offered by Patagonia Camp each day were a bit lackluster in terms of excitement and difficulty. I imagine this is due to the older demographic at the camp, but we were happy to have had the day to hike on our own with a guide so we come do something more difficult at a more vigorous pace. Because of the vast landscape of Patagonia, we did feel there was a lot of time spent transferring in vans. Can't do anything about that, but we were thrilled to be able to change our flight into Puerto Natales instead of Punta Arenas as the transfer to Patagonia Camp was so much shorter. The hotels we stayed at in El Calafate (Madre Tierra) and El Chalten (Hosteria Senderos) and even in Buenos Aires (Nuss) were a bit tired and in need of an update. Even just a deep cleaning and a fresh coat of paint would help.The staff at each place was very friendly and helpful. The amount of time we stayed in each place was perfect - we wouldn't recommend a day less or more in any place. It is true that ATMS/Cash was difficult to come by in almost all the towns we visited, including BA. There were long lines at every ATM. The trip was incredible and we are so grateful to the Swoop team for all they did to help us plan the perfect honeymoon. Thank you!
