Weather and Climate in Patagonia
If you will be spending time before your adventure in Buenos Aires, the temperatures will typically be hot, 80 to 90°F, with a high level of humidity.
The Patagonian summer generally offers mild days and cool nights, similar to the climate of British Columbia. Patagonia days are long—the sun rises early and sets late. Typically temperatures range from about 50°F to the mid-70s during the day, dropping into the 40s at night. Temperatures tend to be cooler during our December and March adventures. Rain and very strong winds are possible any time of year, and can make temperatures seem very cold. We recommend being prepared for all types of weather by dressing in layers.
Patagonia has one of the largest holes in the ozone layer centered directly above it. Even if you cannot feel it, the sun is incredibly strong, and it can cause serious sunburn in a very a short period of time. It is highly recommended travelers use sunscreen on all exposed areas of skin.
