Patagonia Packing List

Packing well for Chilean and Argentine Patagonia can mean the difference between a toasty, cozy trip and a freezing, windblown time, or between a smattering of freckles across the bridge of your nose and a full-on raccoon tan from the strong sun.

The weather in Patagonia is very unpredictable, with everything from clear cerulean skies to torrential rains and snow, and howling gales possible at any time of year. For example, it periodically snows in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park even in the summer months, and then the next week it can be 80 degrees. In the course of a few hours in Argentina‘s Parque Nacional Los Glaciares in Argentina, both on the Mount Fitzroy and Perito Moreno sides, weather can go from clear and calm to socked-in a pouring down rain and back again.
