Hello South America

Getting to Patagonia is actually easier than you would think. On May 3rd, 2017, we headed south from Atlanta's International Airport to Miami. From there, we traveled southeast to Lima, Peru. After a short 3 hour layover, we headed south to Santiago, Chile. We made it through immigration and traveled by taxi to the Princesa Insolente Hostel where we stayed the night. The next morning, we headed back to the airport to catch our final plane south into Punta Arenas, Chile. From the airport, we took a shuttle north to Puerto, Natales, Chile and spent the night at The Singing Lamb Hostel. Puerto Natales is the portal city for Torres Del Paine National Park - the Chilean side of Patagonia where our backpacking journey began.

We stayed at a charming hostel named La Princesa Insolente in Santiago, Chile & spent a full day exploring the city! We would highly recommend booking a stay here! Prices were super inexpensive & the hostel was close to the heart of the city. No complaints!

Welcome To The Park

Your best option to Get to TDP from Puerto Natales is to take a shuttle service. We were fortunate enough to secure a shuttle through our hostel for park entrance the next morning. Entrance fees range between $15 - $30 USD depending on the season.

For a lover of nature, conservation, preservation, and everything wild, nothing can beat Patagonia. Our journey took us to the southern region of Chile and into Torres Del Paine National Park where we trekked to see 'The Stacks' along TDP's 'W' Circuit. May is the beginning of their winter, and at higher elevations we experienced snow and icy rocks. Due to new seasonal restrictions, we were mandated to hire a guide. This came as a surprise to us, but proved to be highly beneficial. Wildlife was at a minimum; however, the views were nothing short of spectacular!
