Getting to Torres del Paine - Transportation & Flights
Torres del Paine are remote. Most travelers fly into either Santiago, Chile
(SCL), or Buenos Aires Argentina
(EZE). From Chile, the logistics are straight forward, while from Argentina, the road gets complicated.
From Santiago, you'll need to fly 3 hours south into Punta Arenas Airport (PUQ) where you will likely stay the night in a hotel in the city
. From Punta Arenas, it's about a 3 hour drive to Puerto Natales, and then another 2 hours to Torres del Paine National Park.
If you're coming from Argentine Patagonia, there are 4 flights per week out of Ushuaia
to Punta Arenas. It's possible to take a bus or car between Ushuaia or El Calafate
, but it's very long and includes a ferry ride across the Strait of Magellan.
