Can someone please suggest the best itinerary based from Puerto Montt (I'll be flying into Puerto Montt from Santiago) and involving any combination of day trips (boat, car, bus) to puerto varas, osorno, petrohue, chiloe, puella through the lagos (I can't go to Bariloche, because I don't have an argentine visa; unless I can get an argentine visa at the border). I have around 3-4 days to spend around Puerto Montt, after which I want to fly to Punta Arenas (don't want to risk taking the Navimag, because it looks like the weather is dicy) and visit the Torres Del Paine for another 4-5 days (Is it possible to include trips to the bernardo and serrano, and the isla magalleno?). I'll be flying back to Santiago from Punta Arenas. I can rent a car or so, can spend around3000 for 2 people excluding flights (the lesser the better :) Thanks very much for your help. Cheers 'n Regards, Ganesh.
i'd either go just to puerto varas/osorno and check out the hot springs, or just to chiloe. As an american you do not need a visa to go to argentina unless they've suddenly changed the laws. just a passport. gmf
