climate is of a moderate type, the four seasons
being clearly defined and with a great thermal range
between winter and summer. Toward the south the almost
constant West winds which produce a strong unloading of
humidity in the mountain range, dominate and cause the
eastern Patagonia to have an extremely arid climate.
A very special phenomenon is the Northern and Southern
Continental ice cap, from which a great amount of
glaciers flows into the immense lakes of the Eastern
foothills and toward the Chilean fjords in the West.
provides a unique attraction for tourists from all
over the world.
