  • El Chalten Full-Day from El Calafate with Lunch

    Visit El Chalten, named the National Capital of Trekking, thanks to its numerous trails that run through the Los Glaciares National Park, where you can observe important hills of the Andes mountain range and lakes formed by melting snow.

    Enjoy a range of hiking trails (independently or guided) within this scenic area. You'll be transported by an air-conditioned coach and hotel pickup/drop-off is available for centrally located El Calafate hotels. A boxed lunch and nonalcoholic beverages are also included on this full-day tour to help fuel your adventure.


    After pick up at your hotel, we will take the mythical Route 40 bordering the Argentino Lake, and crossing the Santa Cruz River.

    Before reaching El Chalten town we stop at the viewpoint of Viedma Glacier from where you can appreciate a beautiful view of the glacier, Cordillera and emblematic Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre.

    We will arrive to the mountain village of El Chalten after 3 hours of travel and 220 kms. After the Park Ranger welcome us, we will continue to where we can star the self-guided hiking trails that run from El Chalten and that lead us to the most wonderful viewpoints of the Cerro Fitz Roy or Cerro Torre.
    Our trekking guide will advise us about the various options according to our physical state and he will deliver maps of the enabled trails. For lunch, we will carry a box lunch in our backpack so we can enjoy it in the middle of the road, also, depending on the climatic conditions, we can have lunch in a restaurant near the area.

    Between 3 pm and 6 pm, depending on the season of the year, we will meet the guide to start the return to El Calafate.

      Awesome tour!
      Pick up was on time and the guide made sure everything run smoothly.
      Drop off was in a restaurant close to the entrance of the park.
      I LOVED the free time to hike on my own pace! There are several trails to choose and the views are stunning!
      Meeting point to go back to El Calafate was at the tour office building
      a bit far from the entrance of the park, giving you the opportunity to see the town with lots of restaurants, bars and souvenirs shops.

      This was one of our 5 all day excursions we booked in El Calafate. Overall, it was a good tour and we enjoyed it a lot. Would recommend. Pick up was later than 9 am - I am guessing because other guests running late and us being one of the last pick ups. Long drive to El Chalten but bus is comfortable and adequate stops along the way. Do yourself a favor and get the Alfajores cookie if they have it at the La Leona hotel. Anna was our trip guide and she did a good job explaining things along the way - both in Spanish as well as in English. Once you get to El Chalten, you have 2 choices - 8 km hike at your own pace or a 1 km hike and walk around town. We opted for the 8 km one. It is a Medium level difficulty for casual hikers. The first 45 mins is the toughest because you ascend a lot during that time. Boxed lunch was decent. Views were spectacular. On this day, Mt. Fitzroy was under cloud cover but we enjoyed our hike anyway. Went to the river point on the way down. There are some very good options in town if you want to grab a drink and use the restroom at local bars and restaurants after you finish your hike and most of them have a great happy hour. We enjoyed our day and would recommend this tour.

      No tour in Patagonia falls short from being exciting and this one was not the exception either. Amazing tour, excellent guides, again, among the very best that I have ever seen. Very knowledgeable. The trekking although somewhat strenuous, is worth doing it!!!

      The Good: El Chalten is a must destination in Patagonia. Fritz Roy peak is a thousand times more impressive in person than any photograph can represent. Wonderful little town nestled between the mountains. Would recommend spending several days than just a single day. If one day is what you have then this tour is the answer. Pick up from your hotel and a comfortable maybe a little tight van made the 2 1/2 hour trip tolerable. The guide was fantastic with clear explanations of the region, it's history and stories of El Chalten. Spoke in Spanish and English so everyone could understand. Sandwich lunch provided and a drop off at the trail head to go trekking. I would recommend this tour, however read below. Suggest you verify the logistics prior to committing.
      The Bad: Logistics of the trip was not to what was advertised. Advertised was hotel pick-up at 7:30ish with 6 hours in El Chalten for trekking and sight seeing. Actual trip was 9:30ish pick-up at hotel with 4 hours of trekking. at the Lorena stop I spoke to the guide which called into the headquarters and was able to extend the trip by one hour 5 hours of trekking. This was a big disappointment since I had carefully selected the Laguna Torre trail since the time to hike this trail fits the advertised 6 hour trekking time. I did the Laguna Torre trek but only got to KM 7 before having to turn around to get back in the scheduled time. I feel as if I was cheated of my plans and what was advertised was not delivered.
      Aside from the logistic shortfall, everything else was fantastic. If you decide to sign up with this tour company, call/email to confirm the logistics of the trip. If it meets what you want, go with them, the guide, transportation and the destination were all fantastic.
