TIPS

Remember to always bring cash, Banks and ATMs are not everywhere in Patagonia. In Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales you can find both of them, if you go to Tierra del Fuego, in Porvenir you can find an ATM.

Weather is changing and unstable, in a very same day you can experience rough gusts of wind and frozen cold, and radiant sunshine with stifling heat. As we have said before, the best thing to do is to wear layers of clothing.

Patagonia is an area of constant wind, especially during spring-summer; it can reach an average speed of 30 to 40 km / hr.

Even though Patagonia can be enjoyed in every season of the year, we recommend your visit between October and April, in the middle of spring in this hemisphere, more sunny days and less rain, therefore more activities to do.
