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.

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.


Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.


Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.


Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.


Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.

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!
