According to internet directions and travel distances it would take about 8 hours to drive from Punta Aremas to Torres del Paine. Is that a reasonable assumption given road and other conditions. We will be traveling in a rental car in early March?
I think 8 hours is far too much.
Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales takes by bus 3 hours.
Puerto Natales to Torres del Paine is about 100 km's and will take between 75 and 100 minutes (depending the road you take).
You van do the trip in about 5 hours.
