8 Day Chile Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi. I'm planning an 8 day (not including travel days) trip to Chile in November/December. My goal is to see a little bit of Santiago and Valparaiso, but mainly to see the many natural sights in Chile. My DW and I (30-somethings) enjoy taking day hikes when we travel, but are definitely not mount climbers.

Given the short time, we'll only be able to travel to one other region from Santiago. I'm torn between spending that time in Torres del Paine or going to Easter Island for a few days and then doing some hiking at Cajun di Maipo or other areas near Santiago. Torres del Paine seems to fit our desire to take in the outdoors, do some hiking and see glaciers, but I wonder if Easter Island might be a more unique experience that we won't get anywhere else. We've previously done a fair amount of hiking in Iceland, Australia (Uluru) and the Big Island.

Any thoughts from people who have been to both over which to choose?
