Atacama v. El Calafate and Buenos Aires

Jump to last reply

Considering two different itineraries right now:

1) 1 night Santiago, 4 nights in Torres del Paine then 3 nights in Atacama Desert, and 1 night Santiago; or
2) 1 night Santiago, 4 nights in Torres del Paine then 2 nights El Calafate then 2 nights Buenos Aires.

In your experience, which would you recommend and why? My travel agent recommends the Atacama option, but I am a little daunted by the FULL day of travel from Torres del Paine to Atacama (long drive, two flights, long drive over nearly a full day). I am also concerned about altitude sickness in Atacama.

Any thoughts are appreciated!
