First of all, reprogram your mind if you live in the North Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere the seasons and climate are reversed. While you are in winter, we are in summer and vice-versa. Your november is our May. Your April is our October and your July is our January. mmm...

When to visit Patagonia?
Because of the great quantity of activities available, Patagonia can be visited whenever you like to. I have seen great colors in April and May taht I have not seen in February. The trees turn reddish and the skyes get bluer. It just depends of what you like the most. Keep in mind that Fauna Attractions like penguins are closed during winter and days are real short.

From october on, days in patagonia are longer, the sun rises at about 5:00 am and sets around 10:30 pm. Higher elevations will be experience a cooler climate, and frosts may occur at night, even during the summer. Find more information about weather in Patagonia in Facts about Southern Patagonia>Climate.

Because of its great area, there are important climatic variations in the region, influenced mostly by the relief, the sea and the wind. In the eastern slope of Patagonia Mountain Range there is a cold steppe climate that prevails in the central continental area.
