Northern Patagonia’s climate is much milder then its better know southern end, Tierra del Fuego.
The spring and summers typically go from the end of October through April which makes it the ideal vacation destination for travelers escaping from the northern hemisphere’s harsh and sometimes long winters.
Mid November through December – Be prepared for some rain. Expect 40’ in the morning and increasing to highs of 60’ in the afternoon. Many Chileans prefer to travel to the Aysen region this time of year.
Mid December through Mid January – Temperatures begin to warm up to an average of 50-75’. Chance of rain will be less than in early December. Expect some rain for a least part of the month. This is the time to come see the multitude of spring flowers in bloom. There is still enough snow on the surrounding mountains for ideal photographing.
Mid January through February – Temperatures warm up to an average of 60-80’ with less rain. Don’t forget sunscreen because it is easy to get a sun burn while enjoying the many water involved activities. This is prime travel time so plan to book early for these weeks.
March and Mid April – Temperatures will range from 35’ in the morning to 60’ in the afternoon. This is an excellent time to visit Patagonia because there are fewer people traveling and fall is in the air. The rainy season is starting up again, but the fishing is still good.
“On the Rio Simpson, the Coyhaique and several lakes and streams that will remain unnamed, I experienced the best wild trout fishing of my life.”
