Hi there,

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. My concern is if I wait for Conaf to open up, the dates on Vertice and Sur…

Hi there

Do you need a supporting document handed by the national migrations authority so you don't have to pay the 19% vat on your room price?

Thanks! Hilde

Hey fellow travelers!

I am planning to buy a moto in Santiago and make a trip down to the southern tip of Argentina, Ushuaia, then back up to Buenos Aires, before making my way back across to Santiago.

A couple questions:
1.) I was thinking of starting the trip in November to get the best weather possible. Based on your experience in this part of Chile/Argentina, is this accurate? I understand this is high season, but I want to limit my exposure to the rain or snow, as I'll be on a moto and…

Hi all,

I'm hoping to visit Patagonia in December/January for just under a month.
Can anyone advise if it really is a bad idea to trek Torres Del Pain solo or is it just cautious advice?
I've trekked in the Himalayas solo a few times and thoroughly enjoyed walking without guides.

Also is it still required to book camping grounds before you enter the park? Can they be booked online before I arrive in to Chile/Argentina?

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.

The flight to the Falklands goes from Punta Arenas to Rio Gallegos to Mount Pleasant. If I just get the flight in Rio Gallegos, it's a lot cheaper then flying from Punta Arenas.

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…
