About Swoop’s Blog

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, as we’d love to hear from you. Alternatively, feel free to ask us any Patagonia-related questions.
