From how to meet fellow trekkers and Magellanic penguins, to where to get the best views of lakes and glaciers, readers share their best tips on Patagonia
You don’t need to go on an organised tour through the Torres del Paine national park, as it’s really easy to do it by yourself. The town of Puerto Natales caters for trekkers, and the Erratic Rock hostel runs daily seminars telling you everything you need to know about trekking in the park. It’s also a great way to meet up with other trekkers if you’re on your own.
