The recent events related with the pandemic brought the whole tourism business in South America to an abrupt halt. Of course, the Chilean Patagonia was not spared. Little by little South American countries have managed to control and flatten the curve of contagion and have started to open their international borders. Ecuador, followed by Colombia, Peru and Argentina and finally Chile announced the opening of the international airports for travellers.
Torres del Paine National Park has announced to be reopening on November the 26th. The Puerto Natales airport will become operative with direct flights from Santiago, beginning in December.
Together with the arrival of summer in the southern hemisphere, lead to the conclusion that travelling to Patagonia is going to be definitely a possibility even before the end of this terrible year for the tourism business.
Thus a good chance to experience Torres del Paine National Park most famous trekking circuit, the W Trail, most likely in complete solitude.
