Physical demands

This trip is suitable for all travelers as it doesn´t demand a big physical effort except when you choose one of our active trekking excursions during your stay at Ecocamp.

Weather

The vast unbroken stretch of ocean to the west and south of the South American continent leaves the Patagonian Andes very exposed to winds that circle the Antarctic landmass. In addition, the strong marine influence and the effect of the Southern Patagonia Icefield make the weather hard to predict. In spring or early summer, fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rain and even snow. Even in summer (December to March), you should come prepared to find strong cold winds (up to 130km/hr) and rainfall. The summer’s average temperature is 11ºC/52ºF (24ºCmax, 2ºC min). However, just as quickly as the weather turns nasty, it can become lovely and sunny. So come prepared for all types of weather!

What you need to bring

Once you book the trip we will send you a pre-trip Information booklet with useful and detailed information about your trip with us.

Itinerary modifications

The weather in Patagonia can be difficult to deal with at times. We reserve the right to change the order of the days in any itinerary at the discretion of the trip guide and based on operational considerations.

Also, during Shoulder and Low season (October and April), some excursions are subject to the weather conditions and might be canceled or modified for reasons of security, such as the Navigation on Grey Lake, the excursion to the French Valley, and the hike to the base of the Torres. In the event of a cancellation, we will either modify the original itinerary or offer you a good alternative excursion into the park.
