SUMMER (december - february)
The days are the longest all year during this season and the temperatures are pleasant during the day, with cooler temperatures at night. You can expect the sun to be up as early as 4:30am and sundown to be at around 10:00pm. This is also the busiest time of the year in Patagonia.
IDEAL SEASON FOR: Active individuals looking to do lots of trekking and spending long days in the Parks.
FALL (march - may)
This season rewards travelers with beautiful colors as trees begin to shed their leaves for the upcoming winter season. For photographers, this is one of the nicest times of the years to go as the landscape contrasts beautifully with the shades of reds, yellows and browns of the plant life. The winds of the summer months start to die down and the larger crowds of the summer months also begin to diminish during this time of the year.
IDEAL SEASON FOR: Photographers and travelers looking to experience the best of Patagonia away from the crowds of the busier summer months.
WINTER (june - september)
Winter is the season with the least amount of wind in Patagonia, giving way to plenty of days of big blue skies. Landscapes are very different during these months as both Torres del Paine and Los Glaciares National Parks are powdered with light snow. For photographers, this is the most beautiful time of the year to visit Patagonia and it is much easier to spot elusive wildlife like Pumas and foxes. 95% of all the excursions offered during the summer months remain open during the winter, offering a whole new way to experience the wilds of Patagonia.
IDEAL SEASON FOR: Photographers and travelers interested in Puma Tracking. This is the ideal time of the year for those looking to experience Patagonia in the most private manner possible as the Parks are never crowded.
SPRING (october - november)

IDEAL SEASON FOR: Travelers looking for good weather for outdoor activities, but also looking for more privacy in the parks and on their daily outings as you avoid the crowds of the summer months.
