In the Valley of Torres del Paine it is found a trans-Andean climate, while in the heights temperature decreases because of the effect of ice and snow. With no doubt the best weather seasons are spring and summer, when temperatures can reach a pleasant average maximum 23.5 ° C during the day. While in winter the temperature drops considerably, falling even below freezing.
