The climate in Patagonia is a very important factor to consider. The maximum temperature reaches 20 ° C in summer and drops to below 0 ° in winter. Due to the wind-chill, temperatures usually drop 6 to 7 degrees. The temperature of the water is 4 to 5°C.

While you can visit the park all year, we recommend to do it between October and April, when you can enjoy day with more sun and light (16 hours) and less rain. In low season, many services are closed, although less tourists can be a plus for those looking for a peaceful journey.

How do I ensure the weather is conducive to my planned activities?

The safety of those who visit the Torres del Paine National Park is a priority for the National Forestry Corporation (CONAF) and tourism service providers. Given the unpredictability of the Patagonian climate, you may have doubts about carrying out your planned activities.

Are there temporary closures due to weather conditions in the park?

Yes, for safety reasons, CONAF may implement temporary closures on some trails or facilities within the park due to adverse weather conditions. These measures are taken to guarantee the integrity of visitors.

Can my service be canceled due to force majeure?

If you have contracted professional tourism services, your tour operator could cancel the service due to force majeure, including extreme weather conditions that put safety at risk. We recommend that you contact your tour operator to find out in detail their policy in these cases.

Climatic conditions in Patagonia: What should I take into account?

Weather conditions in Patagonia are notoriously changeable and extreme, regardless of the season. All park facilities are designed to withstand moderate rain and winds. However, it is essential that you prepare for various weather conditions and have the appropriate clothing.

Are admission tickets refunded for bad weather?

Entry tickets are only refunded in the event of a total park closure. Neither CONAF nor your tour operator can evaluate whether the conditions during the visit are comfortable for you or whether you have appropriate clothing. We urge you to prepare for any scenario and take the necessary precautions to ensure a safe and satisfying experience. Get ready to enjoy Torres del Paine to the fullest!
