Where to go when - our guide to El Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park

Los Glaciares

The weather in El Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park is wide and varied

The sprawling ice fields of Los Glaciares National Park are a frozen wilderness, from which flow 13 enormous glaciers into the lakes Argentino and Viedma. The most dependable weather is during the summer (December - February), though you’ll find there are large crowds at this time. For a quieter trip, visit in the shoulder seasons of autumn or spring, when the weather is often sunny and clear but prone to strong winds. The winter months (June - August) are much colder and snowfall can reduce the accessibility of many routes.
