The weather in Islands and fjords of southern Patagonia is wide and varied

Southernmost Patagonia is a wilderness of jagged fjords and towering glaciers, where the frostbitten Andes finally slope into the sea. Weather conditions here are the most extreme in the region and are prone to rapid fluctuations. Summer runs from December - February, with cool temperatures and strong, persistent winds (December - February). These months offer long days with the clearest skies and good visibility, though rain and snowfall are always a possibility. The shoulder seasons of March - April and October - November are chilly but pleasant, with fewer visitors meaning you’re likely to glimpse more wildlife. From June - September the land is carpeted in glistening snow, which reduces access to hiking trails but opens up the possibility of skiing. The shadowy fjords and turquoise lakes of this impossibly remote land are best explored on an expedition cruise.
