The price you pay for booking an expedition with us is no more and no less than if you were to book directly with the operator. We help Antarctic operators to market themselves and their voyages to the international market and when you book with us they will pay us a small commission. 

As Antarctic specialists, we'll save you time by helping you navigate the maze of options and find the perfect expedition. You'll benefit from our free, impartial and expert advice.

Swoop, you did a fabulous job of getting us prepared before we went, and even before that guiding us on which of the expeditions met what we wanted to achieve. I have never found that before in all of my (long!) life of travels. Even your guidance on which cabin to book, was outstanding.

From the very beginning, Swoop was with us. They edcuated us about the perfect trip, the perfect boat, what to sign up for, the clothing to bring, hotels to stay at, restuarants to go to in Ushuaia. When our ship had an issue and there was a one day delay, Swoop literally "swooped in" and had their expert on Ushuaia contact us and give us recommendations. They became like "family"...we adore Ange and Alex and the entire team!!!

Why Swoop?

We're not your average travel agent. We're Antarctica specialists, and want you to discover Antarctica because it's our favourite place in the world. Here's why we're different:

  1. We know Antarctica like the back of our hand

    We have over 10 year's experience in Antarctica. As Antarctic specialists, we're lucky enough to visit every year, so we know the strengths and weaknesses of every vessel and the ins and outs of every voyage. 

  2. We offer you incredible choice

    We work directly with all the Antarctic expedition operators, so we can offer you a choice of the best expeditionary vessels - 16 in total - and over 80 voyages. For the more intrepid adventurer, we can arrange Antarctic interior trips and expeditionary sailing trips.

  3. We're not biased towards any expedition operator, vessel or voyage

    We have no commitment to anyone but you. We'll listen to what you want from your experience and suggest an expedition based on your exact requirements. We don't charge for our advice and you'll pay no more or less than if you booked directly with the operator.
