Holiday suggestions

We know Patagonia. We have lived there, worked there, travelled there. Let us help you create your dream holiday. If you are visiting for the first time, we have 2-3 week itineraries focused on the iconic highlights. For others, especially those visiting for the second time, we’ve designed highly personalised itineraries to the most remote and off-the-beaten track corners of the region.

What Our Customers Think of Tailor-made tours to Patagonia

We had a great time. The trips were well planned and when a couple of niggles did happen, and they were minor, they were on site to resolve quickly. 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

Our back packing trip in Aysen Region in the pristine remoteness of Cerro Castillio and Patagonia Nacionale prior to arriving in Torres del Paine set the stage brilliantly and Patagonia Camp and Torres del Paine were perfect capstones to an overall 'Life Changing' trip to Patagonia.

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

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

Without doubt, best holiday ever! I have no idea how you managed to cram so many activities into 12 days. Everything worked like clockwork. Every transfer arrived on time and they even had our bus tickets ready for us in El Calafate bus station when we arrived for our journey to Puerto Natales! Read the full review

A complicated set of itineraries, bus border crossing and three hour late night drive all worked seamlessly. It was a tiring agenda, but doable even at our age. (Early sixties) Demanding physically for sure, with several 16 mile days. Read the full review

Using Swoop Patagonia was the smartest thing we did preparing for the trip. They handled everything perfectly and the few hiccups along the way (self induced or covid related) were remedied smartly. Their on the ground agents in Chile were incredibly helpful and eager. We would not have had the same wonderful trip without the aid of Swoop. We just could not have planned and executed the same with our limited knowledge of Patagonia travel. Read the full review

The entire trip was seamless. Your suggestions were fabulous. I enjoyed every aspect of this trip. Accommodations were great, transfers were without issue and your insights were on point. The pace of the trip was just right. Thank you for your attention to detail, your great communication throughout the process. One of our top 3 adventures of a lifetime! Read the full review

Kathy Murphy - United States Of America

Swoop's service was great. Having a specialist made the planning so easy, and we found that the trip was very well designed for our family. The only thing I would have done differently, if it were possible, is to fly into Puerto Natales instead of Punta Arenas, greatly shortening the drive to Patagonia. But I understand that those flights are hard to come by. Read the full review

Exceptional travel company. We had a very detailed itinerary, covering two countries in 24 Days. We did not have one problem and could never have planned this on our own. The accommodations, guides, transportation was spot on! Any and all concerns were treated promptly prior to our arrival to South America.

We are independent travelers and I'm used to booking everything myself, but when it came to Patagonia I got overwhelmed with all of the possibilities, so I would highly recommend Swoop to anyone!

We could not believe how smoothly things went given the complexity of the trip. We were particularly amazed when, having been dropped in Puerto Montt at 7am without a soul around, a bus appeared from nowhere and we were all checked on for our trip to Bariloche!

Tailor-made Trips: FAQs

  • I normally arrange my trips myself, is a tailor-made holiday really for me?

    Patagonia isn’t your average destination. It’s vast and often difficult to navigate, so we help even the most seasoned of travellers. We’ll create your itinerary together, by listening to what you want to see and do and using our extensive knowledge and experience to present you with suitable options and maybe suggest a few things you’d never even thought of. You’ll still make all the decisions and your trip will be completely tailored to you, so it'll be just as if you’d pieced it together yourself, but much easier!

  • Is a tailor-made holiday expensive?

    Not if you don’t want it to be. We can work with your budget to create an efficient route, minimising wasted time and money, but still getting you to those dream places and adding frills whenever you want them - like a few nights in a luxury lodge at the end of a camping trip.

  • Where do I start? Do I have to pick an itinerary that I like the look of?

    You can either choose an itinerary that you like the look of or, because we know Patagonia inside out, we can start from scratch. We’ll talk about your ideas and dreams for your trip and take it from there. If you already have an itinerary in mind we can use that as a starting point, but we’re equally comfortable with - and excited by - a blank sheet of paper.

  • Will you meet me in Patagonia?

    We’d love to, but we’ll be busy helping other people plan their Patagonian adventures! You’ll be in safe hands with our trusted partners, carefully chosen for their knowledge and experience. We’ll be on hand to help if you need us, 24 hours a day.
