Best time to visit Torres del Paine

The Chilean Patagonia, and Torres del Paine national park, can be visited year-round, so we invite you to learn about the different options we have for you in all seasons.

Spring (September to November)

Is a great opportunity to enjoy the comfort of the park, which is not yet at full capacity, so your experience can be much more enjoyable. A visual delight accompanied with the same nice weather enjoyed in summer with mostly clear skies. Is the time of the year when most of the delicate flowers of Patagonia and trees start to blossom as well as animals start their breeding season.

Summer (December to March)

Summertime is the high season in Torres de Paine, a special time where flora and fauna mingle with the landscape of the Paine Massif and it’s colours.  During summer many mountain-related activities are possible like Trekking, kayaking, mountain bike and horse back riding.

Fall (March to June)

Fall in Torres del Paine National Park is a time of the year when the landscape becomes reddish and vegetation takes unique and beautiful yellow hues.  A time when rest is delightful…. there are fewer visitors in the park, ideal for photography lovers.

Winter (June to August)

Unlike the rest of the year, in winter most of the Refugios are closed because of unstable weather and cold. However, for many, winter is their favourite time, very calm and clear days with almost no visitors, sometimes with snow … the perfect time to enjoy the magic of Paine! Check the availability of our Refugios before coming.
