El Chaltén

Capital Argentina del Trekking

El Chaltén is one of the most fascinating places in Argentine Patagonia when it comes to outdoor sports and unforgettable landscapes. It offers the opportunity to explore Mount Fitz Roy and its granite walls, enchanting visitors with its mountains and glaciers. All of this is immersed in the northern area of Los Glaciares National Park, a privileged location for hiking various trails during the day and camping amidst some of the most breathtaking mountain scenery.

Although it typically remains closed during the winter months in the southern hemisphere, from April to October, don’t forget to bring suitable clothing for cold, rain, and wind, just in case. However, if the sun is shining, El Chaltén is a true earthly paradise.
