Best time to visit

Buenos Aires and the Pampas are year-round destinations although October through to April is considered the best time to visit as temperatures are warmer. January is the hottest month with an average temperature of 25°c (76°F) and the coldest is July at 12°c (53°F). January and February here can be hot and humid. Southern Patagonia is best visited from November to March when temperatures are milder. However, visitors should be prepared for strong winds and changeable weather, you could experience all seasons in one day! It is worth considering travelling outside this time and can be especially rewarding in April (for autumn colours) or October (for spring flowers) because winds can drop significantly and there are fewer visitors in the National Parks. There is wildlife in the Peninsula Valdes year-round however Southern Right Whale season is from June to December. May to September is winter and many hotels in Southern Patagonia close for the season. The Lake District has something to offer throughout the year. Between November and April temperatures are at their warmest with December to February being peak summer and when the region is at its busiest. However, the Lake District is particularly beautiful in spring (October) and autumn (March ) and may be favoured by nature enthusiasts at this time of year. These months tend to be milder than during the height of summer and quieter. For those keen to ski then Argentina's winter from July to September is the best time to visit. Mendoza is best visited in Autumn, from March to May and Spring, from September to November when temperatures are at their most pleasant. Please note that if travelling during the vendimia (wine harvest) typically first week in March, availability is more limited and at a premium so best to book early. January and February is peak summer when temperatures will be at their highest. In Salta and the north west the weather is good almost all year round in general. It’s warm and dry in winter (June to September) although it does get cold at night. Summer (December to February) is hot and there’s no air conditioning in most rooms. Avoid the rainy season of February to March, when many of the roads to places you'll want to explore may be impassable due to flooding. Cordoba is also a year-round destination. Nevertheless, the best time to visit is between November and March, when springtime temperatures grace Cordoba. Antarctic weather is a lesson in extremes. Antarctica is the world’s coldest, windiest and driest continent. During the summer months the winds abate considerably and the weather is surprisingly comfortable, averaging between 20 and 50F (-6°c - 10°c). Summertime also means 18-24 hours of sunlight which allows life to flourish for a brief summer period. Long days also allow extensive exploration by small ship cruise to Antarctica. Antarctic weather allows for a short season of cruising from November to March each year.
