Trip Level

This trip is Level 3, Moderate. It features vehicle-based sightseeing and day hikes, with hotel accommodations. Although the pace of this trip is relaxed, this is an active vacation. The shape you're in is an important factor in your enjoyment of your trip. We recommend you make a special effort to get in good condition by walking, bicycling, swimming, or other forms of exercise.


This journey can be enjoyed from November through March, which is “summer” in the Southern Hemisphere. The region is characterized by a cool climate with plenty of rain year-round. Southern Chile's weather can provide spectacular clear days but can also be very changeable, and we want you to be well prepared for all that you may encounter. The average annual rainfall is approximately 23 inches in higher elevations, while it may rain as much as 100 inches per year closer to the sea. The average temperature is 50ºF, and from December to March, the average often reaches 70ºF or more. Come prepared for some rain and bring appropriate rain gear so you can remain comfortable no matter what weather blows in.
