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!

We were part of a small group tour from El Calafate to El Chalten. We saw so many animals and birds: guanaco, fox, ria, eagles, caracara and condors. We were especially lucky to have the most clear weather the area had seen in a month....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
