Has anyone toured Patagonia recently?

I will be going to Buenos Aires next spring and I want to also go down to the region of Patagonia while there. Will I get the full experience on the Argentine side or would I need to venture over to the Chilean side?

Any tips would be helpful!

Never been there...
Torres del Paine National Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
but I think I'd want to do that trip in southern hemisphere spring.

Hmm, hadn't even thought of that but I will be in Buenos Aires anyway so I definitely would love to visit Patagonia while down there. I wonder how if their spring is like our autumn.

ETA: from your link....

Visiting the park is recommended between late December and late February, during the southern summer. Not only is the weather more hospitable, but daylight hours are very long given the extreme southern latitude. Outside of this time frame, the weather becomes too extreme for the majority of the public, and daylight dwindles to only a few hours a day.

So I guess late March/early April is like their autumn. I think I could live with that. Thanks for the link too, btw!
