OUR GUIDE TO the weather in the El Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park
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.
