Road to El Chalten is great. The most important tips I guess are: - Be sure to sleep well before as this Long roads might make you sleep. - Be super alert to crosswinds !

We had a rental car and were going to hike in El Chalten, so we took the 2-3 hour drive up there. We stopped 4 or 5 times along the way because the views were so incredible. Don't miss this if you can help it!

Didn’t had option of a car so we rented a few bicycles from the hostel and cycled out of town. Just about 6km or so and you’ll have a view of the road with Fitz Roy at the back. The way back was really windy...More

Taxis are available but where do you intend to travel from and to - the price will depend quite a bit on the route and itinerary you want them to follow
