Torres del Paine Climate & Clothes for Torres del Paine National Park
Torres del Paine has a micro climate, within a more general maritime climate, and the only constant about the weather in this area is that it changes. It is often windy, with sunny days changing to rainy days in minutes. It is far south at 52° South of the equator, and therefore cool in the short summer and cold in the longer winter months. Strong wind is a regular factor in the area in Summer months (Dec – Jan – Feb) sometimes reaching very high speeds. In the winter (Jun  - Jul – Aug) it is often tranquil with no wind and snow fall covers the area in a beautiful white blanket. The highest peaks in the Park reach almost 3,000m (9,840ft), but the lower parts are only 50m above sea level.

 

 

Clothes to Take

Try to bring LAYERS of breathable clothes that can be taken off or put on easily to adapt to any change in weather. Clothes such as:

 

  • A breathable under vest, breathable DRY FIT over vest or t-shirt, or long-sleeved (NOT COTTON because the material needs to dry quickly)
  • Breathable top such as a fleece.
  • Then a waterproof WINDBREAKER, BREATHABLE over jacket.
  • Trousers (or pants if your are American) that are waterproof BUT BREATHABLE (otherwise you will sweat considerably) and, ideally a second pair.
  • Study, but comfortable and WATERPROOF hiking boots with NO SLIP under sole.
  • You will also need a warm hat, gloves, sunglasses, sun-protection cream and a ruck sack.
  • Also Take: A battery-operated torch for when power is out and in case you find yourself trekking later than planned in the dark.

 

Take with you during the trek extra water and snacks. Prepare for all weather conditions and dress for the outdoors. Do NOT go off the trail because if you have the slightest incident such as twisting an ankle, you may not be found.
