Essential is to wear a rain and wind impermeable jacket, neoprene waders and thermic clothing .

 

ABOUT WEATHER:

Is variable and in wintertime the temperature is bellow 0º C, but allows to perform all tourist activities. The summertime provides with sunny or partially clouded days with mean temperature between 20 and 25 º C during the day. At night it refreshes but is very pleasant. The lodge site is very near to the ocean and in the middle of the forest, so it is expected to have some rain during the week. That is the reason to recommend you to bring some thermic light rain and wind impermeable clothing and it is a must to bring a chest wader.
