fly down with LAN to Ushuaia or Punta Arenas,Puerto Montt,from there you can cross the Lagos to Bariloche/Argentina.(wonderfull trip)
You can also take a ferry to Puerto Montt,taks a few days if I'm not wrong.

Torres de Paine is a place to go,you can hike in this park and camp.
But,right now is winter in this aerea,COLD,COLD!!

Chile is much more expensiv then the other Southamerican Countrys.

5 years ago I went for about the same tim to Chili, 25 days or somehting. I focused on the north and south and only had 2 days in Santiago en 3 days in and around Puerto Montt.

Highlights of the North: Parc Nacional Lauca and the Atacama desert around San Pedro.

Highlights of the South: Ushuaia/Beagle Channel, Torres del Paine and the Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina.

Don't miss that Moreno Glacier, that was the number one of my trip, Lauca was close second.
