Where to go when - our guide to Chile

Chiloe Chile

The weather in Chile is wide and varied

Chile stretches out across 4,300 kilometers, encompassing some of the most diverse landscapes that South America has to offer. Between the scorched Atacama Desert of the north and the majestic Patagonian wilderness of the south, the climate varies considerably.
December to February are the peak summer months, with higher temperatures and less rainfall drawing plenty of local and international visitors. Clear summer skies create the perfect conditions for stargazing in the lunar landscapes of the Atacama desert, or for taking in vistas of the towering massifs and jagged glaciers of Torres del Paine National Park. The vineyards surrounding Santiago are tempting during Autumn (March until May) when the Vendimias wine harvesting celebrations take place in the glow of crimson and gold-hued foliage. The colder winter months (June to August) are ideal for skiing in the pristine Andean slopes of Valle Nevado, or in the glacial hinterland of southern Patagonia. Bursts of rain and sunny days in spring awaken a deluge of wildflowers across the country, and a huge variety of wild animals are easier to spot in the national parks with fewer visitors to disturb them.
