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.

WE have been running along the Ruta 9 for reaching Pueto Natales . The road is well maintaned and the landscape nice for taking picture of the wild country (meadows, forests, wild animals, shores, miradores, flowers , villages You can drive fast if yiou need but it is better to be calm for tasting the landscape and anjoy the panorama

The ironic road between Punta & Puerto Natales -- driving it kinda feels like driving across Wyoming -- windy as hell with not a lot of traffic. Several spots for viewing rheas and such.

Be prepared when traveling Ruta 9, the Route of the End of the World - the road signs stating as much are awesome. The road quality is pretty good in most places; we did not need a 4WD vehicle and had a relatively small car. Fill up the gas where you can, there are basically no places outside of the... More

I always love a sense of wilderness and this just gets you in the right mood for Torres del Paine NP. Rheas, condors, caracaras, wetlands, and wide-open spaces make for a great drive. But there are speed-traps, so if someone is flashing their lights from the opposite direction...

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 may see condors. Don't miss the penguin reserve. There is a marked turnoff to the... More

Travelled from Punta Arenas toward Puerto Natale and Torres del Paine. The road is very good, some very long stright portions make passing easy, good visibility, but take care of the lateral winds and police officers (for speeding). Some beautiful spots for photos , especially sunset.
