Patagonia Trekking: El Chalten – 3 Days
Patagonia Trekking – For trekking/camping, it’s all about national parks like Torres del Paine and the peaks near El Chaltén.
You’ll trek with views of Mt. Fitz Roy, passing by glaciers, lagoons, streams, flora, and fauna in the wilderness of Patagonia. This trek is suitable for most age groups and will enable you to get the most from your time here in Argentinian Patagonia. This itinerary combines a one day hike in a private reserve a few km away from the town and a night at a comfortable adventure camp.
The trek route (45km in total, 3 to 6h of hiking per day) is a perfect warm-up if you plan to do longer treks in South America such as the ‘W’ or ‘O’ circuit in Torres del Paine; accessible by bus into Torres del Paine national park from El Chalten. The accessibility of these Patagonian towns mean you can explore both Argentinian and Chilean Patagonia in a single trip.
