What Our Customers Think of Patagonia Tours

Patagonia Tours trips scored 4.4/5 from 2760 reviews

The most valuable quality of a tour operator to me is if the representatives have been to the destination and have personally seen the properties they are suggesting. I was a travel agent, so I know the value of experiencing a place and the properties first hand. Read the full review

It was pure magic and beyond my expectations. There are no words or photographs that adequately describe the vastness and the majesty of this wonderful and wild place. There were many highlights. The wildlife was a treat. We saw guacanos, condor, falcons, gray fox, Chilean flamingos and rheas. Each vista was more magnificent than the one before it. Its was a 'Bucket List' trip and I would recommend it to anyone who loves the great outdoors. Read the full review

Karen Coakley - USA

We were very impressed by the level of care from not only our guides and hotel hosts, but also the drivers and transport vehicles. It was our first time to Patagonia and using Swoop so we did not know what we were about to experience. It could so easily have been confusing, but it all worked smoothly. Read the full review

We couldn't have booked this trip without assistance from Swoop and I'm so happy we did. It really was a trip of a lifetime, except we definitely want to go back and see more! We were so happy for Swoop's help in setting up a trip that gave us the freedom to explore on our own. We really couldn't be happier.

We told Swoop we didn't want to do the tourist version of Patagonia and they nailed it.

The people at Swoop were so helpful and had such great advice. The Swoop website has so much information on Patagonia, and Swoop made such a difference in helping us figure out where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see and create a plan to make it happen.

Our family had the enormous good fortune of working with Swoop to book our holiday, it would be difficult to imagine a more satisfying trip than Swoop arranged for us, or dealing with professionals more knowledgeable and courteous than its staff.

Swoop says

The spectrum of the Patagonian landscape runs from the crystal blue ice sheets in Los Glaciares National Park, to the red stone of Los Cuernos in Torres del Paine and the deep greens of the southern fjords. Varied regions offer a wide range of adventure.

Places to Go

Torres del Paine

Torres del Paine National Park, with its dramatic granite peaks, is Patagonia's most popular trekking destination and one of the most common destinations for Patagonia vacations. While it's best known for its W Trek and the Torres del Paine Circuit, this national park is also home to horse-riding, kayaking, and puma-tracking.


El Chalten & Fitz Roy

The town of El Chalten is a hikers' haven, lying in the shadow of the dominant Mt. Fitz Roy. Staying in the town, you'll be able to go on day hikes around Fitz Roy to incredible sights. You'll also find the world famous Perito Moreno Glacier nearby.


Tierra del Fuego

Tierra del Fuego is a wild, windswept land for intrepid trekkers and those embarking on an adventure cruise through the glacial waters of the Magellan Straits and South to Cape Horn. It is also home to the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, from where you can set out on a voyage to Antarctica.


Bariloche & The Lake District

Warmer, greener and wetter than most of Patagonia, the Lake District offers many options for fishing, kayaking, and rafting. Other adventure activities such as hiking, horse-riding, and bike touring are on offer here in the summer months, while the surrounding snowy peaks attract skiers to Bariloche during the winter. Swoop specialises in building Patagonia vacation packages, helping you to build a custom Patagonia vacation itinerary.
