Since Chile is on the other half of the globe, the seasons are exactly opposite to those in Europe. Its climatic zones are extremely different due to the significant longitudinal extent. The deserts in the north have no significant rainfall, the Humboldt Current cools the coast and gives it spring-like temperatures all year round. In the Atacama Desert, the temperature differences between day and night are greater than the seasonal. The central zone has a Mediterranean climate: hot summers and rainy cool winters. Towards the south, temperatures decrease, and rainfall increases. Exceptions are the Magellanic and Tierra del Fuego cold steppes, where the climate is dry.
Although tourism is usually concentrated in the summer months of December to February in all parts of the country. Chile falls in the category of all year-round touring countries. If you want to get to know the Chilean winter in the deep south in July, you should inquire beforehand about the opening times of the hotels. The ski centres in the central zone and the Little South are then open. All destinations in Chile are also suitable for a visit in the spring and autumn months.
