Tips for photographing in Chilean Patagonia.


Chilean Patagonia is an unmissable destination for lovers of nature and photography: the mix of mountains, fauna and colors in the sky form the perfect setting to immortalize with your camera. For this reason, we have prepared a list of tips for you to plan your stay according to your photographic interests.

If you like to photograph wildlife, you should visit Chilean Patagonia in the months with fewer tourist crowds. That is, from March to September. In this period the most elusive animals (such as pumas and huemules) tend to approach trails and roads. On the other hand, if you want to capture matings, you should travel between September and October.

To immortalize sunrises and sunsets we recommend traveling in autumn. The pink and red colors of the sky intensify at this time.

Are yours the stars and night photography? We advise you to travel in autumn or winter. The nights are longer and you will be able to capture the mountains next to the milky way in a single shot. Consider checking the lunar calendar and weather.

Finally, if you are a fan of outdoor activities, we suggest you visit Patagonia from October to March. With up to 17 hours of daylight, you'll be delighted with how many adventures you can take on in a day. As you capture these moments with your optical lens.

Consider that in these months you can embark on our Esperanza Ferry to live the experience of the Patagonian Fjords route. You will have the opportunity to portray Chilean Patagonia from the high seas. Without a doubt, you will take an unforgettable memory.
