For the Northern Hemisphere, summer is slipping away. If you’re left pining for another few months of summer, the other side of the equator is not as far as it sounds. It beckons with its own summer season that is at its warmest between November and February. South America is a prime spot for a winter escape, particularly if you’re dreaming of Patagonia.
Opt for the northern sections of Patagonia that straddle both Argentina and Chile — like the Lake District, Neuquén, Chubut, Aysen, and Chaiten — where snowy havens melt away into pristine woodlands, flowering mountainsides, and cerulean waterways. There, you’ll find elegant lodges tucked away in the remote wilderness, peacefully devoid of mass tourism. These are the dreamiest among them.
