Declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO and the 8th wonder of the world, this park is home to a unique landscape made up of mountains, glaciers, rivers, and several species of flora and wildlife that provide a most extraordinary sight during Spring.
Given temperatures are usually warmer in the Spring (ranging between 15ºC and 24°C), traveling the Carretera Austral at this time of the year allows for enjoying many outdoor activities and practicing outdoor sports, like these ones that tour operator Ruta Chile suggests:
This city is located in the extreme south of Chile and is one of the main tourist attractions in the region because it is the gateway to Torres del Paine National Park.
In addition, Puerto Natales also hosts attractions recommended for those seeking to learn about the Patagonian culture while enjoying a leisurely walk along the waterfront, a stroll around its main square Plaza de Armas, or visiting the Municipal Museum.
There's also adventure closer to Puerto Natales. You can go climb in the Dorotea ridge and enjoy a panoramic view of the city, or go cycling, sport fishing, horseback riding, and climbing in the surroundings of Sofia lagoon.
General Carrera Lake
Located in the Aysén region, it's the largest lake in Chile. It is home to the Marble Chapel, also known as the Hands Cave, an archaeological site with cave paintings from 10,000 years ago. This lake is also a great place to practice outdoor activities like kayaking, trekking, cycling, horseback riding, and sport fishing.
Tierra del Fuego Large Island
This island is the southernmost inhabited place in the world. Few travelers know its exceptional beauty, as not many people include this destination in their itineraries and the population here is low. Because of that, it's the most reliable place to watch nature at its best in Spring.
This destination is ideal if you seek to enjoy silence and tranquility while touring Chilean Patagonia and getting in touch with nature. You can observe different species: guanacos, flamingos, hares, foxes, various types of birds, and even penguins. Again, we strongly recommend that you take a guided tour if you want to watch wildlife closely and safely.
Although temperatures in Tierra del Fuego range between 10ºC and 15°C in Spring, you should expect sudden weather changes, so we suggest that you travel with appropriate clothing and be mindful.
