In Torres del Paine it is possible to experience all four seasons … in one day! For this reason, it is very important to wear appropriate clothing for every occasion and be protected against strong gusts of wind, rain and even snow.


  • Synthetic pola cap (dries faster than wool).
  • Polar Neck or bandana
  • Sunglasses with UV protection
  • Sun block factor 45 minimum
  • Chapstick

Upper Body

  • Dry fit T-shirt: the advantage of special fibers is that they dry very fast and the body doesn’t cool.
  • Polar jacket or fleece: not to be missed, protects against the wind.
  • Waterproof Jacket: Gore-tex protects from rain while allowing sweat to evaporate so the body doesn’t cool.
  • Polar gloves: wear two pairs ideally.


  • Fast drying fiber legs or tights
  • Waterproof pants (Gore-tex)
  • Shorts for hot temperatures
  • Polar Pants for campsites
  • Down jacket for campsites


  • Polar or polypropylene socks.
  • Hiking shoes: preferably short-leg ones.Try them at least one week in advance to check comfort.
  • Slippers: for the base campsites and for resting your feet.
  • Gaiters (optional): to cover the bottom of the trousers and boots and prevent mud, water or snow penetrating into the socks.

For Sleeping

  • Sleeping bag: in Patagonia the only thing that works without concern is synthetic fiber. Sleeping bags from 0 ° to 20 ° are sufficient.
  • Insulating Mat: Portable and lightweight, insulates the cold and humid soil. You can lease ones in Puerto Natales or with the same tourist agencies.
