We are in the final stages of planning our last stages of our trip in the far south of Chile. We cannot make up our minds and we wanted the advice from the excellent Chilean experts.
We wondered whether it was worth making the following trip. This would involve taking the Navimag ferry on Jan 27th from Puerto Montt to Puerto Chacabuco. It leaves Puerto Montt at 2200 and arrives in Puerto Chacabuco at 2200. Would we see very much and would the scenery be spectacular? We would then probably have to stay the night in Puerto Chacabuco and we would move on the next day to Coyhaique for a night or two. We would not go to the San Rafael glacier. We would then take the bus to Puyuhuapi and spend a night or two there before taking the bus to Chaiten and the ferry to Chiloe, where we would spend three days.
If we did the trip above would see very much more or many different things than we had seen already in Ushuaia and Tierra del Fuego; El Calafate, the Perito Moreno Glacier and El Chalten; and Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales and the Torres del Paine national park? Another thought is that we may be a bit fed up with the cold and wet. By Jan 27 we will have been over three weeks in the far south and may not relish another week of the same!
The alternative is to not do the above trip and head straight from Puerto Montt to Chiloe. That would give us a week longer in the Chilean Lake Region. We would still have the whole of February in Chile so time in not an issue.
Many thanks in anticipation of your advice
