re: Patagonia Trip
Torres del paine, if you'll be in patagonia the entire time, go in january/february.

O-trek can take experienced hikers up to 10 days
W-trek can take novice hikers up to 5 days

Make the sunrise hike to the torres towers.

The trails have primative/improved tent sites and cabins. They have lodges at most stops to buy breakfast/dinner, alcohol.

There are options to do excursions like kayaking, ice trekking, biking.

I’d go here. This ranch is all inclusive for the week. All kinds of cool activities. Big support staff. We were supposed to go in March, but that got shot to heck.

I was in Bariloche in early March, and everything was dusty, dry, and hot -- no fun. In contrast, I had an awesome time in Ushuaia and El Chalten. I think that Bariloche is likely better earlier in the season.

I was in late May which was off season. We loved it. Felt like we were the only people out there hiking and on the water

re: Patagonia Trip
I was there over the new year. I landed in Punta Arenas as the starting and end point.

Did Torres del Paine, El Chalten in Argentina for Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, and I also walked on Perito Moreno glacier.

The wind was gale force. For getting around, I used this website to easily book bus tickets. Distances are pretty long.

Also, be prepared for food that is extremely mild. Zero spice or kick on much of anything down there.

Good time, though. Also, if you're going over the Austral summer make an effort to go to Magdalena island to check out the penguins.
