Drive from Santiago to Tierra del Fuego?

Please help me...I am trying to figure out if it is possible to drive from Santiago to the Tierra del Fuego...If so, would 2 weeks be enough time for the journey...Is it a safe country...What are the road conditions? What type of lodging is available along the way? Thank you, your response is appreciated!

No problems. 2 weeks is enough for arrive seeing many things. Or you mean 2 weeks for a 2 way trip?, also possible but you will return very tired.
Chile it is a safe country, specially at the south.
You have 2 alternatives:
- going by vessel from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales(fjords and amazing landscapes), then to Punta Arenas and Tierra del Fuego.
- going by road through Argentina (Osorno-Bariloche) and then arriving to Punta Arenas.

I strongly recommend to visit Torres del Paine park and Lakes District.

For specific information do not hesitate to contact me.

Roads in general good, some kilometers with gravel.
Lodging not expensive, with the exception of Torres del paine park(within the park), but you can lodge at Puerto Natales.
