Amazing scenery with top billing add pet the title. Camped the night on the shoe of the food just outside Punra Arenas. Sounded like 30 knots outside all night, with a spot of rain thrown in for good measure. Do it, love it.

A fine, paved road from Punta Arenas to Cerro Castillo north of Puerto Natales. Speed limit usually 100 km/hr and you can average that. Beware of gusty winds, a continuous problem in Patagonia. Many guanacos and rheas alongside the highway. Where ther are hills, you...More
