Our Big Chile (Patagonia Trip)

Jump to last reply

So here we are with the first iteration of the plan for 25 day trip. We are two couples , and looking to make this trip of a lifetime. We love nature and would like to spend most time in between nature (we prefer not to be in big cities that's what we are running from ;-), small towns and villages are perfect). Experience the long drives in middle of nowhere , camp in middle of nowhere and make new friends. We are planing this trip to focus on Puerto Varas, Carretera Austral (start point in Coyhaique to Chaitan and back), Puenta Arenas ,Torres Del Paine, and end all this in easter island.

Looking for the advice of folks and experts in this forum.We may have gone overboard for trying to many things at once, please .. please knock some sense into us (;-)) as to what is practical and what is not and what is a definite no.

Below is a initial detail draft. We plan to be there mid december 2013
