CLIMATE
The southern hemisphere winter is officially between June 21st till September 21st. which is the time during which the city, and foremost the countryside is covered in snow. The climate is cold, although pleasant: Temperatures that will allow tom practise winter sports such as alpine downhill skiing, as well as cross country, snowboarding, ice skating, downhill or dog sledding, etc. but never low enough to disrupt the normal functioning of the city or the tourist activities.
The temperature spread is not extreme and average temperatures for the winter season oscillate between -6º C a + 4º C.
Dominant winds during the year come out of the south west, with an average wind speed of 15 km/h, being at their most persistent and intensive during spring and summer.
During summer it is mainly sunny and agreeable, with occasional maximum temperatures reaching around + 20º C, and the most hours of daylight of the year.

Freezing cold, with very intense cold at night (minimum average night temperatures are below -5°C). Cold moderate temperatures during the day, very cold at night.


WHAT TO PACK
An extra coat is always welcome during a trip to El Calafate, since the weather can change from a sunny sky to a cold wind. Look for a coat you can easily take off and hang when you enter a shop or building for longer than a minute. For the excursions into the country side you will need a sweaters and waterproof shoes. Due too the frequent changes of climate, it is a good idea to use different layers of clothing and a small rucksack to carry the pieces of clothing not in use at any given moment. Sunglasses are a must, especially when coming into contact with snow.

  • Bring coats for rain and snow.
  • Wear layered clothing.
  • Wear sunglasses.
  • Wear rainproof boots or shoes.
  • Sunscreen block crème and chap sticks to protect your lips.
HEALTH
There are no endemic diseases in Argentina and thus you will not need any special vaccination before visiting.
Argentina is free of hoof and mouth disease, thus the there is no danger of enjoying a good steak.
Sometimes a red tide will restrict the possibility to enjoy seafood on the shell. Local media will always inform the public whenever this happens.

Argentina has an important network of hospitals, clinics and medical posts. In the big cities the hospitals are fully equipped to deal with most cases, however complicated, whilst in the most remote villages medical attention is on a basic level.

WATER
All the Argentinean cities that you will visit have potable water treatment plants. However, to avoid any unpleasantries we recommend you stick to bottled water during your trip, especially when in places off the beaten track.

TYPICAL LOCAL CUISINE
The Argentinean cuisine is very varied, just to mention a few typical dishes such as: Barbecued Asado Beef, pastry rolls, stews, corn dishes, regional fried turnover pies, tamales, etc.
We must not forget to mention the traditional beverage of the "Mate" which you will be able to try wherever you go, especially if you visit one of the numerous Estancia ranches that cater to travellers.
You must also always try the local delicacies, whether they are the Patagonian lamb or Tierra de Fuego crab, just to name a few.

In the case of the Lake Region - La Región de los Lagos, the cuisine here has managed to blend the most representative of European cooking with the best of Regional dishes. Here classic recipes receive additional touches such as the taste of fine fruits, trout and game meat such as deer or wild boar, combined with seeds, nuts and mushrooms from the forest, without neglecting classic dishes such as barbecued meat or on the spit or home made pasta.

And lastly, you must try the exquisite "Dulce de leche", a purely Argentinean invention.

Restaurants during your trip:
In Ushuaia: International, vegetarian and local food restaurants.
