Itinerary Torres del Paine - Punta Arenas

(x0)  | By: RayMando | 3,983 Views | 1 Replies

Hello Travelers,
I wanna Trek to see Torres del Paine in Punta Arenas...I don't need to hike the entire "W" circuit - just maybe to the mirador lookout and maybe see a waterfall or take a boat ride on one of the lakes, something like that. So what I was thinking was, 4 days total, including flight days.

My Plan is to fly to Santiago to Punta Arenas, rent a car and drive north to Puerto Natales. Base ourselves there for 3 nights. Spend the next two days at Torres del Paine. Early the fourth day, check out and drive south to Punta Arenas for the long flight back to Santiago.

Any problems with my plan? What can I expect for weather and temps? Can you guys hel?

Hey Ray,
Whats up?

In my opinion your plan is pretty good (However if you can I would go a month earlier),
March is generally a good month but the weather in southern patagonia is always very unpredecitable. Be prepared for strong winds and some rain but nothing to fear about. It could be cold but not really so the strong winds can drop down the temperature.

A windproof fleece is a good idea. If there is not much wind and sun, walking it can get pretty warm too.
