Can you recommend an itinerary for a two week trip to Chile and/or Argentina this November? Thinking more countryside, less city.
Two of our kids are on a LONG trip in South America, and my husband and I would like to go join them for a short visit. Thinking about Patagonia, but would like specific suggestions. Tours? boats? Thanks!
Hi, i would recommend you: Buenos Aires (2 days) - Ushuaia (2 days) - Calafate (2 days) - Torres del Paine (2-3 days) - Punta Arenas (just to take the flight) - here you hace some time to fly to San Pedro de Atacama (2-3 days) and then go back to Santiago to fly back to your home.

As you will arrive at the beginning of summer in South America you should leave Santiago as fast as possible. It will be very hot and lots of smog.
Go to La Serena and see the Valle de Elqui.
Then further north to the Atacama for sea lions and penguins. This year we have had rain so the desert is filled with flowers.
Lots of open space in Chile so expect to rent a car.
From December thru February you need hotel reservations one week in advance.
Bring a computer/iPad you can connect everywhere and buy mobile Internet access..
