From the deep cobalt lakes in the north of Patagonia to the icy fjords and glaciers in the south, few first-time visitors to Chile come without exploring the natural beauty of this region. Dramatic mountain peaks in the Torres del Paine National Park are perfect for hiking and walking, with never-ending lofty views and landscapes that defy the imagination. The weather in Patagonia is as dramatic as its landscape, and it is at the mercy of the Antarctic winds, Pacific currents and mountain thermals.
Spring begins in October and November when the temperatures can still be bitingly cold, but the mountain blooms and wildflower meadows are stunning if you catch them on a clear day. The most popular time to visit Patagonia is in the summer months between December and February when there is the best chance of long days of sunshine and warmer temperatures. Photographers will enjoy the colours of the changing leaves in the Autumn (March to May) when the forests turn every shade of gold and crimson.
After a couple of tense two years. True travel eventually got us away on holiday. Not the original holiday we wanted as that was cancelled, so with all their help and hard work in such a short time we had everything rearranged. Meaning my husband and I could take our family away on holiday for Christmas. From landing to leaving the island we had the most wonderful time as a family, very memorable holiday. Can’t thank Henry and his team enough for sorting every last detail, most professional. The team at the arrival airport were also very helpful. Thank you all so much.
