Patagonia itinerary-help

Jump to last reply

This is a trip that has been delayed a few years but is finally happening. I have gone back and reread many travel posts and am coming up with this as an itinerary:

Dec 14 arrive EZE for one night
Dec 15 we will fly to El Calafate
Then spend the next ten nights divided up between El Chalten, El Calafate, Torres, and Arenas we then fly to Puerto Montt on Dec 25. It's from here that I am having a hard time dividing up my time. We have until Jan 3 where we will leave for SCL for a flight home on the 4th. We are my husband and myself (mid forties) and our ten year old daughter. We are seasoned travelers and I speak enough Spanish to get by easily.

We want to fly fish, we enjoy nature but love culture. We want to stay some place not overly touristy but with good restaurants that we can walk to-no drinking the wine and driving! We will get a car, if need be.

I was considering a flight to Balmaceda to spend a few days fishing and exploring the Baker River area, as well as Puerto Varas, Huilo Huilo, and Fruitillar. With nine nights, I am not sure where to focus on or where we should base and trip out of.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
