To see the Torres del Paine in person is an experience that is sure to captivate anyone who visits Patagonia.  For some, the excursions within this beautiful place serve as a personal challenge which involves physical and motivational preparation.  Regardless of your motive for visiting, it’s important to take your clothing and gear into proper consideration before embarking on your journey.

The weather in Patagonia can change constantly.  It is very common to experience rain, wind, snow and sun within the same day, in certain seasons.  For this reason, it is best to be well prepared with adequate clothing for the sporadic climate.

To help you prepare for your trip, we have created this video with some important recommendations.  For example, we’ll tell you why having a good pair of trekking shoes is absolutely essential, and how the layering method works to maintain our body temperature during a long hike, among other useful tips.

We hope this information will be useful when it comes time for you to start packing to come visit Tierra Patagonia, and to help you enjoy the diverse excursions that our guides have prepared for you.  If you have any doubts, you can write to us at info@tierrahotels.com

See hope to see you soon!
