El Calafate / El Chalten 3-5 days


I am researching tours around El Calafate and El Chalten. I'm interested in a mix of trekking and day tours / trips, mid range budget. I would consider camping for a couple of nights too. Key sights to include Lago Argentina, Perito Moreno, Laguna de los Tres and/or Laguna los Torres. I've had a look on Tripadvisor but would really appreciate advice on tour companies / providers that could arrange transport, itineraries etc.

Many thanks in advance

Hola K!

I would ask you which dates are you thinking. El Calafate/Chaltén can be very cold for camping at this time of the year.

I recommend you 2 nights El Calafate: First day arrival and going to Laguna Nimez, second day Perito Moreno.

3 nights El Chalten: First day walk to Laguna Torre, Second to Laguna de los Tres, and if you still have enegy, third day Lomo del Pliegue Tumbado or if you feel tired, I would go to Lago del Desierto and do the 1 hour walk to Sepulveda.

Hope it helps!

Have fun!!
