this was our second stay in Hosteria El Pilar! we enjoyed hiking and this is THE place for hiking in Chalten (hiking capital of Argentina)! we have 2 girls (5 & 8) and we live in the big city so we are seeking for peace in NATURE! Hosteria del Pilar is like a fairy tqle house!!! Guille & Cris are THE BEST HOSTS in Patagonia! they love what they do & they are certainly great at it! follow Guille recommendations for hikes! he knows what he is taking about! but the one who runs the show at El Pilar is called COCA... the most loving & hairy cat we've seen! she will decide where you will seat!! jajaja Dinners consist of 3 courses and there are always 2 options! both are AMAZING! we did 2 hikes... Poincenot & Piedra del Fraile and we enjoyed them very much! Poincenot is very visual & sometimes crowded with some amazing views of Mount Fitz Roy! Piedra del Fraile is a great option if rainy since you are always walking in the forest & it is amazing for birding! we saw 30huge magellanic woodpeckers! and you get to a mountain refuge (with restrooms & french fries) which are always great incentives for the kids! we also did a short navigation in Lago del Desierto which was another highlights! the boats leaves at 11:30am & then at 2pm! as we were coming back to the basic dock Mount fitz Roy cleared up for us! Our only regret is that we only stayed 2 nights... we need 2 more at least!
