Swoop Patagonia is a free online Patagonian advisory service. We help people organise adventure holidays in Patagonia, just Patagonia. We take real pleasure in helping people find the best adventure for their experience, dates, budget and appetite for adventure.
We know that Patagonia is a vast region, with all sorts of possibilities to explore, but sometimes finding practical information about getting there can be difficult. So through our blog we hope to inspire and inform by sharing our own experiences and those of people we’ve met along the way (whilst at the same time spreading the word about this beautiful corner of the world.)
If you’ve got a story to tell and would like to write a guest blog post, or you’re thinking about visiting Patagonia, please get in touch with Luke & Charlotte, as we’d love to hear from you. Alternatively, feel free to ask us any Patagonia-related questions.
About the authors:
Luke Errington fell in love with Patagonia when he first visited the region in 1999. He’s an avid trekker, marathon runner and adventure racer who has travelled extensively in South America and around the world.
Luke’s most memorable spots in Patagonia are the Paso John Garner in Torres del Paine National Park, the Rio Serrano and the Marconi Glacier. On Luke’s next trip to Patagnoia he’ll be exploring the Nahuel Huapi National Park, the Chubut Valley and the Futaleufu river. In 2013, he hopes to climb the 7000 metre-monster, Cerro Aconcagua.
Charlotte Brown is a Spanish speaker whose passion for all things latino/hispanic led to her interest in Patagonia. Since working at Swoop, Charlotte has had some fantastic adventures including hiking the W Circuit of Torres del Paine, sailing on the Tierra del Fuego Adventure cruise, horse riding in Cochamo Valley and kayaking on the Serrano River.
We’re based in the United Kingdom, in Bristol, and we’re lucky enough to visit Patagonia 2-3 times each year. If you’re in the West Country and would like to pop in and check out some maps and photos of the region then please drop us a line.
