We are headed to Chile From August 30 morning arrival (at Santiago) - Sept 9 (evening departure out of Santiago) for our delayed honeymoon and are super excited! We are looking for some advice on things to do/where to stay. Chile is so large and has so many amazing features, we just can't decide. We're hoping you may be able to help guide us on some itineraries. We are a very active couple (rock climbing, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, mountaineering, backpacking, etc) and we'd definitely like to see Patagonia as best as possible (the key points) and would like hikes/adventures to challenge ourselves but also get us to see the park. It may be nice to throw in a winery tour one day if need to fill in a stop somewhere, or a day or two of skiing. On these notes- can anyone suggest any itineraries we can do on our own, or tour packages? We'd prefer to stay in places that aren't too pricey as we are budget travelers (rooms up to $125ish a night preferable), and we are even willing to consider hostels or backpacking in the park if need be. Please help us get the best out of Chile during or stay!
Thanks in advance for your advice and tips!
