I will be going from Puerto Varas to Santiago at the end of January. I'm new to bus travel in Chile, and am not familiar with all the bus companies. I've seen some talk about Tur Bus, and I know Bus Norte goes from Puerto Varas to Santiago. Which companies are your favourite? Is one substantially better than another? Is this one that should be avoided?
Rio palena give you the entrance to get from la junta in a rock path long 75 km getting this beach beautiful village, from quellon chiloe by ferry other way sailing different and adventure coming.
Here not much people, not much things to do but lanscapes full of green forest and amanzing dunes for pictures its posible if you need rest and keep little time far cotidiano city life ...
Its a kind of dream here nothing happen, except recover your balance.

My friend and I are doing the W trek in March 2015(17th Mar-21st Mar). After this trek, we are heading to Ushuaia for Antartica cruise. Well, we are wondering if there's any direct bus goes to Ushuaia late summer. I was told that there is a direct bus goes to Ushuaia except Sunday, is that truth? If so, what is the departure time?
Is it possible to buy the bus tickets from Puerto Natales to Ushuaia online in advance? I emailed the hostel El Patagonico twice…
My girlfriend and I are planning to head down to Torres Del Paine in early March to do the circuit trek there. Currently, I have my flight into Santiago (SCL) booked and below is planned itinerary after doing some extensive research around the web and on the forums. In my itinerary I have a few questions about how feasible things are and I would welcome any suggestions.
A little about my background, we are avid hikers in our late 20s with backpacking experience in the Swiss Alps and…
I want to highly recommend Cabanas Palafito Cheve where we stayed in Castro. All of the Palafitos are being bought up by folks from Santiago or international. These are locally owned Cabanas built in the place where Violeta Llancabure (owner) grew up. Spanish spoken only. The cabanas have kitchens, living room, loft plus bedroom. They are Palafitos so they are right on the water. The price when we stayed was 30.000 pesos per night... a bargain!
We're looking to travel from Puerto Williams to Ushuaia on Saturday January 3rd after doing the Dientes de Navarino trek. I'm finding it difficult to get current and accurate information on the status of Ushuaia Boating or the Fernandez Campbell boat options.
Has anyone done this trip in the last couple of months or otherwise have current info? Thanks.
I am in a group of 5 people traveling to Santiago and then on to Punta Arenas, and then Puerto Natales with the main destination being Torres del Paine to trek the circuit. We are going January 13th. Our plan is to travel as inexpensively as possible, and we are bringing all of our camping gear with us. Since we will have all of the gear, I am curious if there are areas/parks/places to camp (tent camping) in either Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales and how expensive it is. I am having a hard time…
Hey guys it looks like I will be in san pedro next week.. yep for christmas.. does anyone know any hostels that may not be on hostel world that are good with nice social atmosphere etc.. I am no longer in my 20s haha but am definitely social.
Cheers in advance
Could you give me some advice on my itinerary of a Torres del Paine hike (W circuit) for March?
Also, I don´t want to carry too much, but pack the most important things into a 35-40 litres backpack for the 4 hiking days. Does that sound realistic for Torres del Paine, considering that I want to stay in lodges? And is there a place (maybe at the harbour, the bus station, hotel/hostel) where I can store a large backpack before leaving Natales? (I don´t plan to overnight in Natales, so…
