Best months to visit

The best time to visit Chilean Patagonia is November to early March (summertime in the southern hemisphere). Although you'll compete with heavy crowds during this peak season, the weather is ideal for exploring Torres del Paine National Park and Tierra del Fuego. For the Atacama Desert, the summer months of December to February offer pleasant day temperatures and warmer nights.

From gushing geysers in the Atacama Desert, home to colourful sunsets and breathtaking celestial skies, down to the wild mountains and glaciers of Patagonia, Chile is unbeatable for adventure holidays and rewarding expeditions, with some of the world's best unspoiled national parks. Santiago awaits, a place to wash down days of trekking with a celebratory pisco. Venture to ‘the end of the world’ at Tierra del Fuego to spot humpback whales, or feed your thirst for adventure in Pucón by climbing the Villarrica volcano with Health Travel’s private mountaineering guides. Discover white-water rafting on boisterous rapids, galloping through the valleys on horseback, canyoning, and hiking through the national parks, before unwinding in the steamy natural thermal baths. In the uniquely charming destination of Puerto Varas, quaint country villages meet waterfalls, dense forests, and gurgling volcanoes in the heart of Chile.

Strap on your crampons and conquer the once in a lifetime hike to the top of Volcan Villarrica, one of Chile’s most active volcanoes, before rewarding yourself with a dip in Pucón’s many thermal springs.

Discover Atacama, the driest desert on Earth and home to moon-like valleys, otherworldly lagoons filled with flamingos, smoking geysers, expansive salt flats, and rare wildlife.
