EL CHALTEN

Located just 220 kilometers from El Calafate, El Chalten is situated at the northern end of Glacier National Park and at the foot of the majestic Mount Fitz Roy. This small and lively town is considered to be the "National Trekking Capital" and provides a base from where you can indulge in a huge amount of outdoor activities. Due to the good signposting and condition of paths and trails, most hikes can be done without a guide.

This area is home to pristine lakes, glaciers, dense forests and towering mountains and is one of the most beautiful places of Patagonia.

How to get there

The only way to reach El Chalten is by land. Visitors flying to El Calafate Airport can take a regular bus service to El Chalten. A year-round bus operates between El Calafate city and El Chalten, and seasonally (October to April) from the town of Perito Moreno.

The El Chalten bus terminal is at the village entrance and most hotels are within walking distance. There is also a taxi service for those wishing to save their walks for the mountains!

Weather

Money

El Chalten only has one ATM and with the arrivals of tourists in high season, it can run out of money quickly. There are no banks or exchange offices and few businesses accept credit cards, so we recommend arriving in El Chalten with enough money (in dollars) for the entirety of your stay.

If you are coming from El Calafate, you can get/change money there.

Restaurants

$$$ RUCA MAHUIDA: Lionel Terray , Godoy Cruz (Mendoza); Tel. 424-2698

A small and nicely decorated restaurant, with great quality food and value for money. Highly recommended!

$$ LA TAPERA: Antonio Rojo y Cabo García (Mendoza); Tel. 49-3195

$$ FONDA AHONIKENK: Martín Miguel de Güemes 23, (El Chaltén); Tel. 49-3070

Serving traditional Argentine dishes, this cozy, affordable place is another good option. Don't leave without trying the lamb stew!

Health and Safety

El Chalten has a Health Post, which provides basic health services. The nearest public hospital is located in El Calafate.

HEALTH POST: Calle Guemes & McLeod Tel. 49-3033.

El Chalten is a very small town and as such it is a very safe place for tourists. As always, we recommend being careful with your belongings. There is a local police station where any complaint can be reported. Tel: 49-3003.
