For visitors heading to Patagonia in the south of Chile, October to March are the warmest and most accessible months. Santiago, the Central Valleys and the Atacama Desert are truly year-round destinations. June to August are popular for skiers in the mountains around Santiago, whilst April's displays of autumnal leaves in Chile's winelands make this month an appealing time for a visit.

Month-by-month guide to travelling in Chile

Visiting Chile in January - February

January and February are busy times to visit Chile, it being the peak of the country's summer. Accommodation in Torres del Paine National Park in particular gets full very quickly and prices shoot up here at this time of year. This is a good time to visit Santiago as many residents travel out of the city; reducing congestion and hotel prices.

March is a wonderful month to visit Chile - the strongest winds in Patagonia are starting to ease, autumn leaves are beginning to show in the Lake District and the national parks are getting quieter, making for a really special experience.
