Torres del Paine is amazing.  You gotta go there.  If you’re a backpacker, I’d highly recommend the 7-9 day O Circuit trip.  It’s freaking amazing!  Check out these links.  You can take cheap busses everywhere and hike it yourself, of course (no need to do the tour below unless you want to).

Or, the 5-day “W” trip is also amazing, and there are a variety of lodging options from cabins to your own tents.  It’s more crowded than the full O circuit though.

Puerto Montt and Chiloe are also really cool.

@Lollybags:  never been but on my list is going to Ushuaia.  It’s the southern most city in the world and beyond picturesque.  If you can swing going that far south go for it =)

@lolot:  omg, did you take those photos?!! Patagonia is the top of my bucket list. Now I’m even more antsy to go there!

@Lollybags:  have you considered doing a cruise around Patagonia? My aunt did that so she could get to a lot of the more inaccessible places, and she loved it (and came home with tons of penguin pics!).

@Mrs. Wallaby:  haha no, that’s just from a google image search.  But it’s impossible not to take amazing photos there!  I was there way back in 2003 and had a film camera, and those pictures have since been lost :/  But they definitely looked like that, albeit from my more crappy point and shoot.  The lakes are all bright turquoise from the glacial mill (glacial runoff, tiny bits of rock), and Grey Glacier is one of the most spectacular things I’ve ever seen.

Yeah it’s an amazing place, hope you can get down there soon.  I’d love to get back, but it’s a little harder now that I’m not living in Chile!
