Visiting Torres Del Paine in winter is a trend that is on the rise. The advantages are many and every day there are more people who are taking advantage of them. Here we leave 7 of them. You will see that they are worth it.
Some think that Chilean Patagonia is too rough in winter to visit it. And yes, it is quite cold between June and August, but this has great advantages. Below we tell you what are the benefits of visiting Torres Del Paine during the low season. You'll see that it's worth it.
- There are fewer tourists
There are fewer tourists who choose to take a tourist program in Patagonia during the winter and that becomes an immediate advantage for those who want to connect with nature in peace and in silence. Unlike the summer season, in the low season, there are no rows for bathrooms, there are no crowds to take pictures in the most striking spots and spend hours without seeing anyone walking nearby. On this date, the W Torres del Paine tour is for you alone.
- The climate is more stable:
Yes, even if you do not believe it, in winter, there are fewer fluctuations in the weather because the wind decreases. Also between June and October, it is the time when there is less rainfall in the park. Yes you have to remember that the temperature borders the 2nd, but that's what the technical clothes are for.
- There are more possibilities to see wildlife: (pumas and huemules)
Observing part of the fauna of Chile is one of the best advantages of visiting Torres del Paine on the coldest dates. There is less movement of people, therefore the animals are seen more, especially the pumas and huemules, which are so elusive. Did you also know that this park is one of the places where the culpeo fox lives? Or that you can see the Chilean chingue, in other words, the skunk? If you like wild animals, winter is the date for you.
- Landscapes can be incredibly surreal
As we mentioned earlier, on this date the wind decreases, therefore the sky is more clear, which allows us to observe perfectly the snowy mountains, the Horns and of course the Towers as well. In addition the orange skies and the trees without leaves they give a different perspective to the park.
