When to Visit
Different times of the year come with different sets of weather patterns. While the summer (December through February) is the most popular time to visit due to the higher daytime temperatures, it’s also the time of year when the winds are blowing at their fiercest. For rafting, going in November will combine warmer weather with full rivers from glacial melt, combining for an amazing adventure. The best travel deals can be found in the shoulder seasons, spring and fall, assuming you don’t mind slightly chillier weather!

Patagonia is one of the few truly wild places left on Earth.
Full of mountains, glaciers, rivers, and wildlife, it is truly a sight to see. All of our partners in Patagonia understand the blessing of being able to enjoy this special area of the world and are actively engaged in efforts to protect it for generations to come. In addition to local adventurers, many nonprofits are engaging in work to conserve parts of Patagonia.
One of the leading nonprofits in this struggle is Conservacion Patagonica, founded by Kris Thompkins, the former CEO of Patagonia (the clothing brand). They started by helping to create the Monte Leon National Park, transferring it from a large-scale sheep ranch into a haven for many different species of wildlife. Through their partnership with the Argentine National Park service, this 165,000-acre park which runs along 25 miles of coastline, is helping both flora and fauna recover their lost grandeur. The next project of Conservacion Patagonica was to buy 650,000 acres in Chile’s Chacabuco Valley to create the Patagonia National Park. The park, run by the Chilean Park Service, is now open to the public and not only helping to conserve this wonderful natural resource, but also to provide a sustainable alternative economy in an area historically dependent on ranching.
