Swoop's top places to stay in Patagonia

A luxury base in Torres del Paine

Our top recommendation for Torres del Paine. Not just wonderful views and extraordinary architecture - we rate Tierra Patagonia for their highly passionate and experienced guides and excursions as well.  A great way to see the highlights of the national park, but also to get properly off-the-beaten-track to places that precious few get to see.

Patagonian estancia: Live like a gaucho

This is the quintessential Patagonian experience.  Raw, real and a true taste of Gaucho life and the vastness of the Andean foothills and Patagonian steppe. The setting is wonderfully remote and the landscapes ever changing. A unique and wonderful base for riding and fishing in Patagonia.

Tierra del Fuego Lodge: Cape Horn Exploration

A great base from which to explore Chilean Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn.  After flying over the Darwin Range to get there, you can sail the Beagle Channel, trek to the Dientes de Navarino, and even fly over Cape Horn. The hotel's true assets are its wonderful location and unique excursions.

Lake-side Retreat near El Chalten

A lakeside lodge deep in the heart of Patagonia, overlooking a hanging glacier, wonderful hosts, just 6 rooms and accessible only by boat, or a 20km trek. A wonderful base for off-the-beaten-track hikingfishing or simply relaxing. Our number one recommendation in the El Chalten / FitzRoy area.

Andean Lake District: Home for adventure

Situated within 150 acres of private land, on the edge of Tagua Tagua Lake, this authentic lodge is ideally situated for exploring the treasures of northern Patagonia and the Pacific coast; wild rivers, lakes and waterfalls, crashing glaciers, smoking volcanos, dramatic cliffs and ancient rainforest.


At one with nature in Torres del Paine

Based in the very heart of Torres del Paine with a great choice of excursions to all the famous landmarks.  We think this is a great option for solo travellers wanting to meet likeminded souls in an extraordinary and convivial environment. They also live up to the sustainability credentials promised. Low season deals offer particularly good value for money.
