Quasar Expeditions' Patagonia adventures incorporate the full spectrum of activities in the region, from hiking to horseback riding, cruising glacial lakes, ice-trekking, sea kayaking and fly fishing. The list of what to pack for such an adventures is varied, as you may imagine, but we have prepared a very thorough packing list for you.
Weather in Patagonia is very unpredictable, as is the case in many mountainous regions with varied terrain. It is not uncommon to experience sunshine, wind, rain and even snow on a single day, even if traveling during the summer months. The only way to experience and enjoy this natural paradise to its fullest, is to come well prepared so that the weather does not affect your daily activities.
The key is to "layer" for cold weather (i.e. on glaciers and in the mountains), or take off "layers" if the day gets warmer or your body temperature rises when hiking. The list below attempts to cover everything that you will need to bring to be comfortable during any of the activities in which you choose to participate.
Important Note: Please be aware that the list below does not include items for camping or for doing any of the trekking circuits in either Torres del Paine or Los Glaciares National Parks. The Packing list below will get you through all types of weather and activities, but it assumes you are staying at a lodge or hotel each evening.
