Are you hoping to travel before March 2023?

Patagonia's a big trip and we know how crucial it is to get it right. As you’re considering travelling in the next couple of months, we want to be upfront with you…

Finding available accommodation is proving almost impossible in Torres del Paine and Los Glaciares National Parks. While not uncommon, the pandemic has exacerbated the situation this year.

Alongside this, Swoop are also currently focused on ensuring that all of the logistics are in place for our booked travellers who are due to head south shortly.

Swoop has therefore decided to no longer accept any new bookings departing before the beginning of March 2023.

As alternative options, here’s what we suggest:

Option A:

Push your trip back and choose to travel instead in early 2023. April onwards has more accommodation options still available. The Patagonian autumnal colours are stunning and trails less crowded.

Option B:

Defer your Patagonia adventure by 12 months, benefitting by getting exactly the trip you want without compromise, and lock in plans now while there’s still good availability.

If you are able to be flexible on your travel dates, the next step would then be for us to arrange a time to talk through the options.

Transfer from Buenos Aires Airport to your hotel and drop off your bags before enjoying your private 4hr guided city tour. Soak up the atmosphere at the Plaza de Mayo, the site of Argentina's most important historical events.

Next visit Mayo Avenue and the San Telmo district, the oldest residential neighbourhood in the city. Experience the original Tango on Caminito Street in the neighbourhood of La Boca and enjoy the dancers and souvenir shops. See the iconic Boca Juniors soccer stadium. Visit Puerto Madero and the docks, bustling with offices, bars and restaurants.

Pass through the Retiro neighbourhood and move on to see Palermo and its most exclusive residential area before finally arriving at Recoleta and its cemetery, the final resting place of Eva 'Evita' Peron. Note, the entrance fee to the cemetery is not included in the trip price – you will need to pay this when you visit.

Today you can enjoy a small group tour to the Tigre Delta, travelling right from the heart of Buenos Aires by catamaran.

Return to Buenos Aires by small vehicle, stopping off at the historical suburb of San Isidro to see the beautiful cathedral and quaint cobbled streets.

This evening's highlight is the Argentine Experience: a unique blend of food, wine and interacting with local people. Learn how to make traditional empanadas, dine on grilled provolet cheese with sliced chorizo sausage, warm bread and homemade chimichurri. Order a steak in Spanish and make your own traditional mate. Your guides throughout the evening will answer all of your questions on Argentine cuisine and culture.
