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.

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.
