In August I will be travelling to Chile for the first time with my boyfriend for 17 days. We have been pouring over articles, blogs, guidebooks for a few weeks now but we are completely overwhelmed and cannot pin down an itinerary. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
A few things to know:
1. We are in our early thirties, not very active but would like to get involved in outdoor activities, hiking/kayaking/rafting when we are there but having some time to rest is also quite…
Hi. I'm planning to do the O trek in Torres Del Paine in January, and I have questions about the convoluted process of booking sites.
1.) Vertice and Sur are now taking reservations for their sites, but Conaf has not opened up their reservations yet. Should I go ahead and book with Vertice and Sur with the hopes of getting the dates I need when the time comes to book with Conaf? I have a little flexibility in January.

One last question :) Is there a preference on visiting Patagonia from the…
Hey, I'm thinking of booking a Torres Del Paine Trek in November/December that will start and end in Puerto Natales.
Then I want to fly to the Falkland Islands 4 days later.

Anyway, so let's say I have four days/nights that I can spend in any combination of Puerto Natales, Punta Arenas and/or Rio Gallegos after the…
