The climate of Punta Arenas (Chile)
Punta Arenas is the southernmost town on the South American continent. Most people there live by fishery, tourism and forestry. The town has a regular ferry-service to the Falklands and from this town many excursions can be made to Alaska and Tierra del Fuego. Punta Arenas has a tundra climate. This climate is an intermediate form between the very wet tropical rainforest climate and the desert climate. In the tundra climate it is relatively dry, the temperature is low and there is little vegetation. Due to its situation on the east side of the Andes rain often falls here on the west side of the mountain and the east side stays relatively dry.
