Best Time To Travel To Chile
Chile is a year-round destination but depending on what kinds of activities you enjoy will determine a better time to visit than another. For the best savings, we recommend traveling in the shoulder seasons: autumn (March to May) and spring (September to October), this is when accommodations will be more affordable. The best time for outdoor activities is November to March when the mountains are clear of snow offering up Patagonia as a nature lover’s paradise.
Interested in snow sports? Visit from June to August. Looking toward the north? The capital, valleys, and desert are year-round places to visit and when you want to visit the whole country in one swoop the best month to do so is in March. Love wine? Come during April or May during the harvest season and celebrate Vendimias, celebrated in the lake district, Santiago, and in Valparaiso. And before leaving, don’t forget to witness the best stargazing opportunity in the salt flats from December to February
Chile is truly amazing from spectacular beaches to breathtaking mountains to hundreds of geysers to sprawling vineyards to desert to everything else you’d want to see! Oh and don’t forget about Easter Island! All in all, we promise Chile won’t disappoint!
- High Season: November to February
