Recommendation for mid Nov Itinerary

My itinerary for mid November

Day 1 (Sun) Fly into Santiago

Sleep in Santiago

Day 2(Mon)Sky Air flight to Punta Arenas. (I am able to change this flight w/out penalty-as long as I fly within Chile.)

Day 7 (Sat) I meet with my tour group to do the TdP full circuit trek.

Thanks to all the replies in a previous post I know of great recommendations of places to eat and sleep in Punta Arenas.

However, I am now 100% confident I donít want to be based in PA for 5 days. Iíd like to explore Patagoniaís other areas.

So far Iíve come up with the following.
  1. From Santiago fly into Balmaceda, rent a car- 4 hour drive on Carretera Austral road to Puerto Tranquilo-sleep overnight, kayak to the marble caves and then the same day or the following day, boat to Glacier San Rafael. Drive back to Balmaceda. Iíd love to explore Northern Patagonia...
  2. Ushuaia-Tierra del Fuego Province. I am trying to find a bus that leaves on Tuesdays from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia. Iím having a hard time accomplishing this task...bus back to PA on the following Friday.

My main wish list experiences are trekking on a glacier, kayaking &/or boating in extreme water, exploring an area not so well known, and of course penguins.

Iíll be camping the entire time in TdP. Therefore Iíd prefer to stay in hostels and hotels before TdP.

Please help me finalize my itinerary.

Any other recommendations?

Iím starting to feel quite overwhelmed.

About me-solo woman traveler. I donít speak Spanish. This is my first big solo adventure. (All of my loved ones are warm weather type people. The thought of having to put on a base layer on makes them Iím doing this alone!)

Thank you!
