Weather and Clothing

Weather in Patagonia

 

The weather in Patagonia is cold most of the year, but you will find the ambiance at hotels, restaurants, and transportation very well heated.

Here we dress “Onion” style, and it’s most recomended, this will allow you to either take off or add clothing depending where you are So you have to pack a winter parka, and a waterproof one , sweater or fleece shirts, turtleneck and cotton T-shirts.

Add to that several pairs of socks (take an extra one when going on a tour) and shoes that adapt best to the terrain.

The best thing is to take with you leather shoes with rubber soles, like the trekking boots kind, or nautical shoes or sneackers, During the winter season don’t forget gloves, scarfe and a hat or cap.

Depending on the season and the destinations, if it’s summer , you can include some beach wear and sandals.
