For those of you interested I can only tell you that Patagonia is completely worth it! I am here right now and the scenery is beautiful. You can check out pictures on my blog.

Hope they convince you to make it down here.

He is quite right - Patagonia is fascinating, although sometimes the scenery is a little arid. Worth the effort and as I have only done it alone the company would be good as it can get a little isolated and you begin to wonder who knows where you are.

I am trying to plan a trip to the South of Chile to Patagonia, and have questions about the cheapest and most practicle way of doing so. How does one get to Chiloe? From Puerto Montt, how does one get to the National parks with the glaciers? Of course, I would love to do a tour, but I am afraid they are out of my price range.

Not a very timely response, perhaps, but getting to Chiloé is usually done from Puerto Montt, you take a bus to Ancud or Castro (the two cities on the island), and the bus goes on the ferry between the mainland and Chiloé. There are other ways to get there from "insular Chiloé," or the land mass opposite, but the way I mentioned is the most usual. Let me know if you want more details.

re: "the park with the glaciers," I'm not sure which you mean. The easiest way to get up close and fairly personal with glaciers in Patagonia is to cross the border into Argentina and from El Calafate, take a trip to Glaciar Perito Moreno in the Parque Nacional de Los Glaciares (AR). You can also take a few-day boat trip on the Navimag to Laguna San Rafael, or go to Torres del Paine, accessible from the Chilean town of Puerto Natales (from which you would also leave to get to El Calafate to see the glacier, as mentioned above.)

About camping in Patagonia, I know of no outfitters, but if you are willing to schlep your own stuff, you can rent decent gear in Puerto Natales and bring it along to TDP (mentioned above), or even rent tent space and sleeping mats (though I think you bring your own sleeping bag) like you would rent a refugio in the park.

Let me know if you have more questions. I've been a number of times.

Travel is the best way to discover any culture. I love to travel which help me to the explore and learn culture of this fascinating and diverse country. I wish there was something planned for the summer! I am a Computer Engineer and have of vacation time in summer, but none at all when all these trips are planned. :(
