Hi Kay,

When we were traveling in Chile, we saw and also traveled with a few seniors (over 70s) travelers. The following day tours had travelers of all ages, including seniors:

1. From Puerto Natales to Torres del Painein Patagonia Chile

2. From Puerto Natales to El Calafate and Perito Moreno Glacier

3. From Puerto Varas to the Chiloé

4. From Puerto Varas to Petrohue Falls and Peulla

Chile is one of the most advanced countries in South America. Their road systems are well maintained and long distance public transportation was readily available. November is the best time to visit the Lake District and Chilean Patagonia. Both regions happen to be my favorites in Chile.

Thanks for the helpful Many thanks. My main concern is about the altitude in the Atacama. Did you hear anything about this?

You're welcome, Kay! I didn't visit the Atacama region but did spend a few weeks in the Andes, over 8,000 feet above sea level.

Yes! In November we are in spring season, so is good to visit Patagonia for example. Also if you come to Santiago you have in 2 hours mountains (Cajon del Maipo El Manzano) with some hot springs, trekking areas, also you can rent horses and you can visit winneries areas (Concha y ToroViña Cousiño Macul). In 2 hours also you wil find the beach (In Algarrobo beach is the biggest swimpool in the world :) ). 

In Santiago there`s many cultural activities, also some hills with great views to the Andes. If you want to see traditional stuff go to Pomaire (try the one kilo empanada!) Curacaví, Paine, etc.

From Santiago 3 hours to the south you can find Colchagua Valley if you want to visit and try wine.

Hope it`s helps! :)
