Weather

The weather in Patagonia can be very tough, but during the fishing season the climatic conditions are friendly the most of the time. The range of temperature between the day and afternoon vary in  the 10°C and the 25°C, in the night returns to go down to 7°C . But also, Patagonia is well known for the dramatic changes of the weather in just one day, “you can pass all the seasons in one day..”So sometimes the weather is just unpredictable.

Clothes

Due to our changing climate, even if it’s summer and we have very hot days, cannot miss a warm sweater, a good waterproof jacket and footwear for all types of time. It is important also bring sunglasses, and sunscreen, the UV rays are very strong in the Patagonia.
