Need help on Patagonia itineraries to book tickets.

Jump to last reply

My September vacation plans fell thru due to several reasons, and I had to move my time off to November around Thanksgiving.
So, I am looking at several options where can we go in November, and Patagonia seems the most appealing.
I would like to book tickets ASAP (there are still mileage tickets available to Argentina and Chile.)
But before I book, I wanted to ask Fodorites a couple of quick questions. I apologize, I did not do much research yet, but I will do later when I decide on tickets.
One option as I see it, is to fly to Santiago, then Punta Arenas, and from there start travelling toward Torres del Paine Park, and later toward Argentina El Calafate etc, and fly out from BA.
Another option is to have a round trip to/from BA, spend more time on Argentinian side, travel to Torres del Pain from Argentina, but then come back.
What do you recommend?
We will have two weeks, and we are not interested in trekking. We are interested in hiking, maybe mini trek around glacier, beautiful scenery, seeing penguins, etc.
Is this relatively easy to arrange everything on our own or working with travel agency? We are independent travelers, so would prefer not to take any tours.
Thank you so much in advance!
