The weather:

The weather is prone to drastic change in Patagonia. Located in a natural basin, the town of Futaleufu can experience the arrival of a weather pattern which can stay in the basin for a few hours or many days. In the past, the summers have varied from hot and dry, 90˚F days to cold, wet 40˚F days. Extremes in weather are expected in Patagonia.

If you have a tendency to get cold easily, email us and we will consult the guides for an expert opinion of what to bring to make your experience pleasant throughout the trip. It tends to cool off in the evening, no matter what the weather, so be sure to bring comfortable clothes to relax in at the end of a big day. Slippers and a robe are the perfect way to keep you warm on a cool evening spent relaxing indoors. For hot, dry weather, be sure to pack extra sunglasses in case of a broken or lost pair. The sun is very strong so those with fair skin should cover up with long sleeves or a high SPF sunblock. There are few stinging bugs in Patagonia, however, it is advised to bring bug spray with DEET just in case.
