Patagonia Weather!

Has anyone been on this trip, or to the same area? I've read that the weather isn't particularly brilliant, is it really that bad???!!!  How would it compare to say Scotland in summer?

Hello! I have travelled in Patagonia during October and I think the best way to describe the weather is 'very changeable'. Your departure date falls into the spring/summer season (which runs from October to March). Even at this time of year Patagonia can be cold, windy & rainy but then other days will feature brilliantly clear, sunny skies and milder temperatures. If I was you I would expect things to be quite unpredictable, so probably quite a lot like Scotland!! This is a beautiful part of the world and a great trip.

Kind regards

Did this trip some years ago. You are dead right about the weather, It is a bit like Scottie.... but when it clears, It's great. We had wet weather in Paine but the rest of the trip was fine and sunny (mind you, the wind never lets up). Great scenery. I loved it.


Thanks for that advice - sounds just like Skye in the summer then!

Not as many mozzies! :-)


I was on a camping trip there in 2009 - wind was so bad one night that our tent poles bent so badly we struggled to put the tent back up again!

Stunning place though - loved it - but be prepared for 4 seasons in 1 day!!
