Weather in Patagonia in June

Does anyone know how cold it gets? I saw average temps, are @39 F but what about windchill factors. Was thinking of going to the Explora Hotel there has anyone been?
Thanks!

We were in Bariloche the 1st week of June 2003. Of course, this was just before the opening of ski season so perhaps we just missed the cold weather. I do not know the actual temps, but can tell you that we took a boat ride across the lake from Llao Llao to the waterfalls, etc. We sat outside on the top of the boat and I wore a long sleeve tee, sweater (not heavy because I don't even own that living in South Louisana!), wool coat, gloves and hat. This was in the wind of a moving boat. If we had been walking around town, I don't think we would have needed as much. I am usually freezing, but stayed upstairs rather than going inside so it couldn't have been too bad!
Patagonia is a large region so I'm not sure where you are going or if this helps!

We stayed at the Explora in both Patagonia and Atacama in September 2003. I enjoyed both very much but the one in Atacama is absolutely amazing!

The weather in Patagonia, or degree of coldness felt, depends entirely upon the winds. It is extremely windy and therefore it is important to layer effieciently when hiking or spending a lot of time outdoors. The view of the peaks from the Patagonia lodge is breathtaking and everyone heads to the outdoor jacuzzis with drinks in hand after a day of hiking, walking and glacier climbing. The guides are wonderful and very informative as well.

As you probably know, the drive to the Patagonia lodge from the airport is long and only scenic after you have entered the national park (about 4 hours to the park and 1 more to the lodge). Keep a look out for the guanacos!! They are everywhere and can blend very well into the backgroud. For comparison purposes, the Explora in Atacama is only one hour from the airport and goes through beautiful desert scenery. The night time sky here is amazing!

If you need more info. just let me know. Enjoy your stay!

Patagonia is very cold at that time. But if you want any suggestion come to the NW of Argentina, you will see a lanadscape completelly different that you have never imagined. Salta and Jujuy share the most beautiful part of the Andes and it is also rich in culture. I am a tour guide and give free qualified information about this topic, if you need.

Hosteria Pehoe in my opinion is a much better value than the explorer. The rooms aren't that great, but the view from the dining room and upstairs sitting room can't be beat. Even in their summer the winds can be bone chilling. Long drawers would be on the top of my packing list, then hat and gloves and warm parka. A boat trip to grey glacier gets really chilly up close, so don't forget your gloves like I did!
