Looking to travel independently?

Many of our customers ask us to support them with just one part of their trip. They may need help deciding between glamping sites or want us to match them with a trek or other guided activity, but are happy to book their hotels and flights themselves.

1

Booking part of your trip with us costs the same as if you went directly to a local company in Patagonia, but there are some key differences. After you have booked with Swoop, you benefit from our expertise in matching you to the right trip or activity, along with access to our extensive advice and travel guides.

2

Swoop specialists, Danny, Chloe or Sarah, are based in Chile full time and know the ins and outs of all of our trips, having experienced many of them first hand. They can help match you with the right trips and a local guide over the telephone. When you’re confident you’ve picked the perfect option for you, then we’ll create your itinerary, send you a secure payment link for a small deposit to get your trip booked. You’ll then gain access to our Adventure Planner which is full of information to prepare you for your trip.

What our customers think of How can Swoop Patagonia help you?

From the moment we stepped off the plane in Santiago until we left Buenos Aires, we felt we were very well looked after. Read the full review

Stephen Weinstein - Canada

There were a lot of moving parts as we explored 6 areas (i.e. Buenos Aires, El Calafate, El Chalten, Ushuaia, Chilean Fjord, and Torres del Paine) over the course of 3 weeks. This included 3 domestic flights, a cruise, and numerous vehicle transfers. Swoop handled all of the logistics associated with the travel without a single issue. The elimination of all hassle & stress that could have occurred allowed us to really enjoy each moment & every day. My recommendation... identify what it is you want to do & recruit the help to assemble the pieces into a completed puzzle. Read the full review

I was initially a little hesitant about this trip - just because we were spending so much money on a company we'd never used before. The whole thing was fantastic though, from the pick up at the bus station to the drop off at the final hotel - it took so much stress off of me and my mom and allowed us to enjoy everything more fully.

Sam Ricketts - UK

Going into the process, I was skeptical about the value of hiring a facilitator to assist with the planning and logistics. We are typically travel do-it-yourselfers, so paying a premium was a hard nut to swallow. However, as the experience unfolded, the thoroughness of the planning Swoop and their local partner provided completely impressed us. Everything went according to plan, and at every refugio, we got exactly what we contracted for easily and pleasantly. Read the full review

The activities we did with Swoop providers were part of an extended trip in Chile. Every day we have spent in Chile (and a bit in Argentina) either with a Swoop activity or traveling on our own has been fun and enjoyable. We have met many great people - locals as well as other travelers. Read the full review
