      Best side of the Andes

      Chile 18 hours ago

      I am planning a trip by car in October-November in Argentina and Chile, and I am thinking of arriving to Cueva de las Manos from Peninsula Valdez and then drive north to Atacama, passing by Barilloche et Mendoza on the Argenitina side and Puerto Montt and Santiago on the Chilean side.
      The doubt is whether it is nicer to drive between Cueva de las manis and Barilloche on the Argentinean side and then cross in to Chile, or to cross into Chile south and then enter Barilloche area and tour it.

      Then I have the same doubt, i.e. is there anything worth seeing between Barilloche and Mendoza, or is it better to go back to Chile and drive to Santiago and then go to Mendoza from there.

      I am quite experienced in driving in Argentina, having already driven more than 10.000km there in the north and extreme south, and given the cost of car drop-off, I am not interested in using planes or other means of transport, except maybe to cross the lakes (but is it possible to take the car across to Chile that way or is it only for pedestrians?)

      Full day tour to Torres del Paine from El Calfate

      Torres del Paine Feb 25, 2015 at 1:48 PM

      Im looking for just a day Tour from El Calfate, Argentina to Torres del Paine, Chile on either April 5th or 6th. I only have 2 and half days here because one of the days Im doing an Ice trek on the glaciers on either the first or second day depending on whats available for Torres del Paine. The next day we are heading north to El Chalten to go camping and hiking for 3 days. This is why I'm looking for just a day trip on these days. Any recommendations on certain tours or where I can find these day trips available? Should I book them now or wait until I get to my hotel?

      Thanks

      Trisha

    • Has anyone used MoreTour originating in La Serena

      by fairchaffee Online Now Aug 22, 2011 at 1:17 PM

      We have booked a tour of Elqui Valley with an agency called MoreTour. I cannot read most of their website as it is in Spanish. I have been dealing with the general manager Cristián Clavero Salazar
      General manager
      More Tour
      He is a professional but with very broken English. I have gathered 9 persons to go on this tour. Has anyone has experience with his tours or this company in general. I am worried about the size of his tour buses for this many people. Has anyone been on this tour?

    • Suggestions on Chile

      by Lou_ Online Now Dec 1, 2005 at 10:12 AM

      Hello

      I have 5 days in Chile to spend chilling out in march 2006. Looking at going up to La Serena for a few days and visiting Vina and Valpo.

      I am quite keen to hire a car and take things as they come. Would this be feasible in March to get accommodation? Bearing in mind my spanish is very very basic....

      Any help would be appreciated

      Cheers
