Three hours from El Calafate, Argentina is Torres del Paine, Chile. A National Park that will take your breath away. The stunning views keep getting better and better as you drive further into the park and it’s an absolute MUST SEE if you are going to Patagonia.
El Calafate is a major hub for days trips like the one we took to Chile, so much so that we needed to book our excursions in advance. Our tour company made it as easy as possible, picking us up early in the morning for what would be an extremely long day.
For reference, the trip from El Calafate to Torres del Paine is approximately three hours long, not counting for the time spent crossing the border into Chile. And that doesn’t include the time spent driving around the park.
