While much of Chile can be visited year-round, the jagged mountains of Patagonia are only easily accessed during the summer. With March falling at the tail-end of Chile’s summer, you can still go hiking in Patagonia and will see fewer visitors compared to earlier in the season.
Visiting Chile in March also gives you the chance to see autumn leaves beginning to show in the Lake District, and as the summer crowds thin out, the national parks become much quieter. It’s also wine-harvesting season, with several festivals taking places across the country’s wine region that feature grape stomping, live music and, of course, wine tasting.
