El Chalten for Mount Fitzroy
To get to El Chalten you will need to get to El Calafate first. Buses operate from El Calafate to El Chalten and the trip takes about 3 hrs.
El Chalten is a very small tourism village located beyond the northern end of Lake Viedma and within the Los Glaciares National Park 200km north from El Calafate. The name El Chalten is the indigenous name for the Fitz Roy mount, named after Captain Robert Fitzroy of Charles Darwin’s ship “The Beagle”.
Mount Fitzroy resembles the “Torres” in Torres del Paine National Park, reaching a height of 3,400m with vertical sides that create an impressive and dramatic mountain vision. El Chalten is primarily a base for serious hikers who wish to hike the trails in the area or climb the challenging peaks.
The village provides camping and national park information for visitors, as well as commercial camping (with showers) and a limited number of beds, catering mostly for backpackers. The tourist trade has spawned a few restaurants and basic shops in town, and some of the accommodations provide internet and phone access and show regular movies. There are a few hikers’ hostels and one top-end hotel in town. Other than that, the village is fairly far removed from the normal flow of news and communication, even during high season (November-February). The village is nearly deserted during off-season (the Southern Hemisphere winter).
