Nestled up against the hills of the Los Glaciares National Park, El Chalten serves as one of the nation's most bustling hubs for hikers and backpackers heading out into the wild landscape of southern Patagonia.
Take a break from El Chalten with a short trip to Upsala Glacier in El Calafate, about 1h 40 min away. Spend the 14th (Mon) exploring nature at Cerro Fitz Roy. There's still lots to do: stroll through Laguna de los Tres, appreciate the extensive heritage of Laguna Torre, admire the sheer force of Salto El Chorrillo, and identify plant and animal life at Los Huemules.

To find other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, read El Chalten trip itinerary planning website .

Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
