  • Near the entrance to the town is Fitz Roy beautiful views, some trekking course is a small town can spend hours slowly relaxed and easy to get there.

  • I was referred to this shop by the the only tour agency in El Chalten that does technical climbs on Viedma. Talk about a monopoly... Anyway, I rented the requisite rigid sole hiking boots for about $8...  more »

  • I rented most of my equipment here for the Huemul trekk and was happy with what I got. They don't have 1 person tents tho. But the gear was alright, he helped me with the harness and he even gave me a discount. Would Rent here again
  • The trip was booked solid, but we got our reservation just in time. Arrived with my girldfriend and from the moment we got there the staff was super friendly and helpful throughtout the stay. A very fun adventure and beautiful places to discover. Highly recommend!
  • Can totally recommend this place :) The attendance was fantastic, they guide us through the equipment needed for our hike. Thx Guys! Will come back soon!!!
  • Great service, very friendly employees. We had an incredible experience! Thanks!
  • Least friendly staff I have encountered in my trip to South America, without exaggerating. Clerk was visibly hostile and did the minimum to assist us, both in renting gear and general advice about the area. We met the same clerk during two different visits, and he provided the same kind of unhelpful, hostile service. Stick with the places on Main Street.

Where to stay in El Chalten

Thanks to the city's small size, almost all of the accommodation options in El Chalten are within easy walking distance of anything of note in town. Most "hotels" are in fact cozy alpine-style lodges catering to international visitors, and tend to be on the pricier side due to their upscale amenities. Alternatively, you can stay in one of the many campsites outside town, though weather here can be harsh. During the high season in January and February, you'll need to book at least a month or two in advance as lodging fills up fast. Keep in mind that El Chalten depends heavily on seasonal tourism for its income, and many hotels and lodges, particularly smaller, family-run affairs, close down during the winter off-season. On the flip side, many of those that remain open offer lower winter rates.
