The weather in Torres del Paine is notoriously changeable, with not only extremes in temperatures – ranging from 34°F (1°C) to 66°F (19°C) – but also in day-to-day sunshine, wind and rain, sometimes even in the same afternoon. We would highly recommend bringing suitable clothing for all seasons, though particularly be sure to include windbreakers and protective gear wherever possible.
