The Weather in Punta Arenas

The weather in Punta Arenas and throughout Chilean Patagonia is a great enigma and part of its attraction. In the same day you can experience the four seasons, with important climatic variations, with rain, sun, cold, heat and wind gusts of up to 100 km/hr.  

During the summer, the weather in Punta Arenas and its surroundings tends to have sunny, windy days with maximum temperatures between 13 and 20°C and minimum temperatures that drop to 5°C. During this time the days are very long, with natural light up to 18 hours.  

During the winter, on the other hand, the opposite occurs. Daylight hours are reduced to 8 hours with low temperatures, whose maximums reach 8°C and minimums between 1 and -5°C.

This is why you should come to Chilean Patagonia prepared for all climates, dressing in layers and wearing comfortable, waterproof shoes.
