When to Go to Patagonia

By Paige, Nicaragua, December 2012

No reviews, be the first!

As South America narrows to a slender cone, pointing the way toward icy Antarctica, the climate and landscape change dramatically. Rather than the lush tropical rainforest of the Amazon or arid Andean desertscapes of the Pacific Coast, this is a glacier carved wilderness more akin to Northern Europe or Alaska than the rest of this rich continent.

This is Patagonia, divided between Argentina and Chile; it is relatively easy to visit both nations while you’re down here, so consider flying into Buenos Aires and out of Santiago (or vice versa) when you plan your adventure. Keep in mind that distances are huge; Patagonia is slightly larger than France.
