El Chalten

Located in the heart of Rio de Las Vueltas, El Chalten is within the famous Glaciares National Park. This mountain village is sometimes referred to as “Argentina’s Trekking Capital”.

Those who prefer a shorter hike will enjoy Laguna Capri. It takes less than two hours each way and promises outstanding views of Fitz Roy. Relax and watch the sunset.

There are two longer treks from El Chalten that lead to Laguna Torre. Thanks to a clear pathway, you can walk map-free. Simply be guided by the Fitz Roy River valley as you move upstream. At each stage of the trek, a beautiful view is presented whichever way you look. Observe from Margarita viewpoint, check out the waterfall and admire the incredible Cerro Torre Mountain.

Aside from hiking, a gaucho-guided horse ride can be arranged to take you along the trails. Experience is not required, so all abilities are welcome.

After all the hiking and sightseeing, treat yourself to a scoop of ice cream from Heladeria Domo Blanco. There are lots of tasty flavours to choose from. The berry and the lemon flavours are popular among both locals and tourists, but everyone’s taste is catered for with an extensive set of options. If you’re not in the mood for a gelato-like treat, you can visit the nearby chocolatier or the local brewery.
