  • a fairly gentle & easy hike compared to the last section of Los Tres but the views are sooooo much better. The trek is quiet so no conga line here thankfully & in shade for a good third of the way. If...  more »
  • Long trail. The Lookout Mountain of Fitz Roy is not so steep. If I die, I can go up another smaller and see the great side of the opposite side. A sweater, hat and scarf are useful to get comfortable up there. The day may be hot, but blows an icy blast of Fitz Roy.

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.
