Patagonia in winter - possible/ advisable??

Jump to last reply

We are planning on spending 6 months in South America from Feb-March to Aug 2013. Our main focus will be on Ecuador where we will probably spend the first 3 months. from there we are thinking of travelling overland through Peru visiting some places we haven't been before and maybe returning to Cusco for a few days before crossing into Bolivia via Puno/Titicaca and maybe spending about a month there.

What I would really like to do is to visit some of the places in Southern Patagonia we regretted not visiting the last time we were in SA, notably Torres de Paine, Tierra del Fuego, Perito Moreno, Ushaia etc. However, as it is likely to be mid winter by the time we get there i.e. July/Aug is this a totally ridiculous idea or is it still possible to visit at this time of year?

I suppose, I could reverse our itinerary and leave Ecuador until last but flights from Europe seem to favour flying into Quito or Lima rather than Santiago in terms of cost. I am looking at One World Alliance flights with Iberia and LAN mainly because of the air pass I can purchase for internal flights (although this is still not a great bargain!).

Any thoughts, suggestion or opinions would be much appreciated.
