  'cold as ice'
by vtveen

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We visited Puerto Natales during late spring (early December) and still it can be ‘winter’. Specially when visiting Torres del Paine or making a boat trip on Seno Ultima Esperanza it can be (very) cold. Besides the weather can change very quickly; during our visit we had rather sunny weather in the morning in Puerto Natales and in the afternoon near the glaciers it was cloudy, windy and very cold.

What to pack for Puerto Natales (and Patagonia)
Clothes: best to wear in layers
Wind- and waterproof jacket
Good shoes (specially if you intend to do some walking or hiking in Torres del Paine)
Hat/cap and gloves

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: UV filter sun glasses
Sunscreen lotion, 30+ (the sun is very intensive, even if there are clouds)

Photo Equipment: Enough space on your memory card.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
