With 2 weeks, you could go on a nice tour in la Region de Los Lagos in south central Chile, beginning in either Puerto Montt, Valdivia, or Temuco. Some of the towns to visit include Pucon and Villarica. You can also include adjacent areas of Argentina around Bariloche. South central Chile has some gorgeous volcanoes, lakes, and mountains. The ride from Puerto Montt to Bariloche is gorgeous, involving 3 different boats across 3 different lakes. The passes in this part of the Andes aren't very high or difficult.

The further south from Santiago you go in Chile, the wetter and cooler the climate becomes. You could still have wet weather in the lake and volcano area, and it's highly likely south of there along the carretera austral in November.
