1) What is the best time of year to visit Patagonia?
This depends on the interests of each particular guest. Patagonia is a vast region and Puerto Natales, where the Fundador Hotel is located, has a variable climate. Due to the strong winds, in a single day it is not unusual to have rain, then sunshine to cloudy and overcast. In other words….the four seasons packed into one day! The windiest time of year is from November to February where the days are also longer. From March to May the autumn leaves display a rainbow of colors and from June to August, our winter season brings shorter days making for a less crowded, stronger and more profound encounter with nature. September brings the blooms of spring lasting until November where we also witness the birth of the new guanacos. As you can see, each part of the year has its own magical appeal.

From Punta Arenas overland to Remota, about three hours. From El Calafate, Argentina overland to the border with Chile and then continue overland to Remota, a drive of about 2 hours.
