Winter in Frozengonia
5 Winter Days of Trekking in Torres del Paine
THERE ARE MANY REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT TORRES DEL PAINE NATIONAL PARK IN THE WINTER.
Sure the temperatures are extreme, but if you come well equipped and with the right mind set, nothing will stand in the way of you falling in love with this autral-most wonder of the world.
First, you will have the park all to yourself. Imagine a place visited by 300,000 tourists per year empty itself during 4 months. Less people also means more chances to make wild encounters. In effect, puma and huemul deer sightings are more common during this time of the year. If you like winter sports, this is your time, as you will be walking on ice and snow. Crampons are on the required gear list. Additionally, although the temperatures drop considerably, wind gusts do soften and strong winds are almost non-existent during the winter. Surprisingly enough, the sky is clear and the sun shines more often than not. These conditions are excellent for photography, as sun rises later and its light reaches the snow-caped Paine massif horizontally all throughout the day. Finally, low season means lower rates.
