Any other Patagonia survivors out there? What an amazing trek! My fiance and I went the last week before the park closed for winter and we defintely got blasted by the patagonia weather at times! What an amazing trip though! Difficult but so, so worth it!

I was there in their summer, so the temperatures were definitely mild by comparison. I guess I had it much easier.

It's an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend it as well!

Andrea, we have just arrived at Punta Natales...the weather has certainly changed (hot, hot, hot). The trip sailing from Puerto Montt apparently was a weird "good weather" no seen in a long long time.

Any recommendations after your trek? Did you do the W or the big one...

We did the W which was the perfect length considering the weather. Plus, at that lengt, it is still easy to carry enough food etc. The Erratic Rock offers free info sesssions on either of the treks - well worth it - very knowledgeable people. After the trek, we spent a good week at the Erratic Rock Hostel (awesome!) watching movies and relaxing. Have a great trip!

We were there about a month later... early April and it was pretty cold at night, but totally manageable. Just make sure you have appropriate gear (sleeping bag, hat, good thermal underwear etc). You should be good to go this time of year! Enjoy!
