Looking at some of the forums I think I need some direction as I might have overestimated what I thought was possible.
We are spending some time in El Calafate and then travelling onto Punta Arena. We are leaving El Calafate on 13th December and then have a flight booked from Punta Arena on 18th December.
I had assumed we could travel to Punta Arena from El Calafate and then do tours from there, some forums seem to suggest that its not worth spending too much time in Punta Arena but to spend it at Torres del Paine. We arenot planning to hire a car so would need to do this either by public transport or a tour company.
Any suggestions please as to how I can make the most of the time I have allocated to this part of Chile?
