Best Time to Travel to Chile

Best Time to Travel to Chile

January and February are busy times to visit Chile, as it is the beginning of the country’s beautiful summer season. During this time, head to Torres del Paine National Park, for hiking in the abundance of newly grown greenery. Just make sure to book accommodations ahead of time, as they can become full pretty quickly. During these months, tourists are often found visiting Santiago, when hotel prices lower and the congestion in the streets reduce.

In March, Patagonia crowds start to diminish, and accommodation prices begin to lower. Choose between visiting Patagonia or the Lake District anytime between October to March. Unless you want to hit the ski slopes - the skiing season is from June-August.

From April to August, the number of visitors in Chile lowers, and the country becomes a little quieter. Many Patagonia hotels close for the season. However, if you’re looking to see wildlife at its finest, this is the best time to visit Patagonia, when the park remains open, and the various animals are freely roaming.

Visit Santiago or the Atacama Desert in September. Although the Atacama Desert, in the north is warm year-round, the crowds are small in September.

In October, head to the Lake District when the rain showers help the flowers bloom. And November and December are perfect months to visit Valparaiso or Torres del Paine National Park. Take note that many Chileans take their holiday vacations in December, so booking ahead is a must!
