All you need to know about Patagonia Mountains & Lakes Tours

What is the best month to visit Patagonia?

Patagonia is best visited from September to April. Summer (December to February) is the most popular season due to the warmer weather and lush landscapes. Autumn (March to May) gets colder but brings stunning golden foliage and great wildlife viewing, while Spring (September to November) has more rain and chilly winds, but blooming flowers and fewer crowds.

How many days do you need to visit Patagonia?

The time you spend in Patagonia is entirely up to you and all depends on the places you want to visit in Patagonia. If you want to see the top highlights of both Argentine and Chilean Patagonia and do some hiking, you may need around 10 days or more. However, if you only plan to see a few highlights or do some short walks, a week or less may be enough.

Is Patagonia better in Chile or Argentina?

Patagonia spreads across both Chile and Argentina and it’s easy to do both in one trip. If you’re short on time, go to Chile for Torres del Paine, the iconic ‘W’ trek, the Rio Serrano boat cruise, and the scenic Carretera Austral highway. Alternatively, head to Argentina for Los Glaciares National Park, stunning Mount Fitz Roy, and the amazing wildlife of Ushuaia and Puerto Madryn.

Where do you fly into for Patagonia?

If you’re heading to Patagonia, you’ll most likely fly into one of the capital cities - Buenos Aires in Argentina or Santiago in Chile. You can then take a domestic flight into several Patagonia destinations, including Punta Arenas, Balmaceda and Puerto Montt in Chile and Ushuaia, Bariloche, El Calafate and Puerto Madryn in Argentina.
