El Chalten, Argentina

Patagonia's El Chalten is known as the trekking capital of Argentina.

Fitz RoyEl Chalten is located at the foot of Monte Fitz Roy and is surrounded by glacial lakes for picture perfect vistas in
every direction. Getting to the "Trekking Capital of Argentina", at the north end of Los Glaciares National Park, recently got a bit more civilized after they paved the 215km road from the nearest town of El Calafate. But it didn't make the jaw-dropping views up to the jagged granite peaks in front of the Southern Patagonian Ice Fields (the most important continental ice mass after Antarctica) any less surreal.

Bring sturdy hiking boots as there are dozens of options here from day hikes and lookout points to expert climbs and multi-day treks in and around Los Glaciares National Park. Or visit nearby Lago del Desierto to step into a landscape painting of glaciers, waterfalls and forest.

You'll spend 2 nights in El Chalten on the Condor, a 14-day Patagonia adventure that starts in Punta Arenas, Chile, and ends in El Calafate, Argentina.

    Condor

    On the 'Condor', you’ll visit truly some of the most amazing places on Earth, by foot, kayak, bike and boat. Patagonia, for hikers, is always near the top of the bucket list. You’ll enjoy incredible views as you hike in the Fitz Roy area of Argentina, trek in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park, cycle Milodon Caves and sea kayak amongst icebergs on Grey Lake. Immense craggy mountain ranges erupt straight up from colossal boulder fields, vast rivers of ice calve into deep blue lakes, and its intricate coastline is strewn with uncharted fiords and inlets. It’s the type of scenery that leaves an indelible impression in your memory – one that photos will never quite manage to replicate. If you have a passion for the outdoors, the 'Condor' is the trip for you!
