What our customers think

Communication with Swoop prior to the trip and the trip planner was excellent.

Gill & Richard Starling United Kingdom December 2018

Swoop did a very good job for us in terms of listening to our interests, finding a suitable situation and helping prepare us for the trip.

Patricia Schenkkan United States Of America December 2018

Getting a glimpse of what the frozen world and more importantly, what a pristine environment looks like. It shows that we can enjoy wilderness areas if we make the effort to consciously leave no footprint.

Matthew Lambert United States of America December 2018

Booking with Swoop was the best decision I made about the trip. Swoop's services were some of the best we have experienced. Always responsive to any questions I had and very timely. Their recommendations were spot on.
