ou may start exploring the chilean North Patagonia, with its Austral Route, beautiful cities and amazing national parks. Then you can go to the southernmost part of the world and get to South Patagonia, Chile. The inspiring towers of Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, are an adventurer’s delight. The weather in Patagonia is well known for high winds and extreme variability.

What shubh did not answer is the fact that July and August is the middle of winter in Patagonia and it get really, really, really cold in the south. They day is very, very short - just few hours of sunshine, or I should say daylight, as weather often blocks the sunrays, so exploration is limited. It is more of an adventure.

In the summer (December - January), in the southern Patagonia there is plenty of snow, and nights can get really chilly. So imagine what it is like in the winter. Depending on where in Patagonia (it is a large area) you want to go, calculate how long the day is going to be (you can see only so much during the hours of darkness), and how cold it can get (when it is very cold, exploration can be fun only to an extent). The northern parts of Patagonia, particularly in Argentina, should not be so bad with regard to weather and the length of day.

Also, the mountains, covered with snow, will be more difficult to explore and many routes may be closed due to avalanche hazard. Plains will be easier...
