We are taking the 07h45 train from Santiago to Chillan (we want to take one train journey in Chile), then onwards to either Los Angeles or to Temuco. The train is scheduled to arrive in Chillan at 12h40 and the buses depart Chillan at 2pm and 4pm taking 1h30 or 3hrs to Los Angeles or to Temuco respectively (it is the same bus on Tur bus)..
If we spend 3 hours in Chillan, then we go to Los Angeles, if we stop briefly, an hour in Chillan, we can go on to Temuco. Should we have a leisurely lunch…
We will be arriving on Easter Island in December for 3 days, after we continue to Santiago, Chile. If we apply for our tourist visa on arrival do they require proof of a return flight leaving from Chile? We are planning on traveling overland and we haven't booked any flights after Chile. Is this gonna be an issue? Or would a busticket to Peru or Argentina be enough?
How would it work with other countries in South America entering them by land rather than flying in?
My girlfriend and I will be traveling to Chile from 10/3/16-10/11/16. We'll be arriving very early in Santiago on 10/4 (around 4am). We'd like to do some hiking in Patagonia. I understand that we need to choose either Northern or Southern Patagonia and that we will need to fly there shortly after we arrive on 10/4.
From there though, I'm pretty overwhelmed logistically. It seems like southern patagonia is less likely to be a feasible trip just because of the additional time to get…
I am landing at Santiago the 14/09/2016 for 6 months
I am looking for a car where I can sleep in with a 2nd person.
I can't pay more than 4000€
Do you have some clue ?
Hey, I finally have a new Notebook and can produce content again. Hopefully you don't mind if I share my latest video with you guys!
It’s from April 2015, and I was making my way from the rainy Fjords in Patagonia to the Island of Chiloé, tracking down the erupting Volcano Calbuco and finally walking and hitch hiking into ash-covered Argentina. And all of that in just 12 minutes, in which you will also witness my transition from ridiculously long to very short hair :)
Hello all :-),
In January I am travelling down south to go on a cruise. Have the option of going to Punta Arenas first for a couple of days and limit my time in Ushuaia to little more than a day (arrive day before cruise, fly out day of return to go back to Punta Arenas), or just do Ushuaia.
Will be travelling alone (male, 36) by plane.
Is it worth visiting PA? Is there enough to do in either of the places? Not the type to be wanting to really go on excursions, just like visiting the towns and…
My south american handbook mentioned that the tourism office in Valparaiso runs wine tours for 27.50.
I cant find any information as to times, wineries etc. Could anyone shed some light on this?
I land into SCL at approximately 4am. I intend on taking the first possible bus to Valparaiso and from there drop off my bags at the hotel before going on the wine tour. I hope to get back by 3pm in order to do the free walking tour.
get to Val, drop off bags, go on the 10am tour then…
In december nad january i will go to chile. In that time i want to travel to Torres del Paine, but since it is very far in the south and i have a like a 'homebase' in Santiago, i dont want to only go there and head back.
My plan right know is to get to Torres del Paine via flight (Punta Arenas and buses to entrance) and enjoy my time in the national park for 8-10 days
After Torres del Paine i want to head see some other places while travelling back to Santiago by bus.
We're a couple, looking to create an adventurous itinerary in Chile, 8.9.2016-4.10.2916 (8th of September, for the mm.dd.yy people) - 4 weeks!
I'd appreciate your help with:
1. Is going to Patagonia during that time of year should be ok? we're fine with cool temperatures, but not freezing to death :)
2. Could you help with a skeleton itinerary? We would like to explore everything - trekking, extreme sports, wineries, wildlife watching and whatnot. Would rather focus on nature and adventures…
I'm planning a 30 day honeymoon to south america in December where we are planning to cover Argentina and Chile roughly 14-15days each. So i want to also include Easter Islands but i'm not sure how how many days will be enough? I'm thinking between 3-4 nights as i want two full days for hiking sightseeing etc and one for water related activities. Since, i like swimming we can also do abit of snorkeling and scuba diving.
In Chile, i have plans to go to Attacama 2nights, Torres del…
