Weather
 

Our trip was planned for late March to early April when the summer fades into fall. This is a less than ideal time to travel to Patagonia, as it is essentially shoulder season, meaning poorer visibility and tricky weather. During our trip, we encountered high winds (60mph), rain, sleet, and snow.


Below you can find the average temperature profile.



PACKING List
 
Necessary for Travel

Passport

Currency

Make sure you take out about $500 USD before traveling to Patagonia to exchange there! Any guided tours that you take, you will need to tip in cash! Also the power went out almost everyday for about 1-2 hours while we were there, so you couldn't pay with card since the WiFi was out. Make sure you have cash if you need it.

Proper Vaccinations & Proof of Vaccination

You will need to prove COVID-19 vaccination depending on where you are traveling back to!

Travel Insurance (shop World Nomads here)


Travel Bags

This is a great pick for a carry-on, which holds my camera, all tech, trail runners, and clothes. This has built-in packing cubes, which ia a lifesaver!

This is the pack I actually used as my carry-on. This held my camera gear, laptop, toiletries, travel pillows, and Rumpl blanket.

I rarely travel without using packing cubes. I will be using these for my duffel bag!

I used this duffle bag to pack my hiking gear and clothing.

I will pack this in my carry-on so that I can have a small bag to carry around in town.
