An unassuming village of just 500 people, previously a remote outpost, El Chalten is nestled just beneath the FitzRoy and Cerro Torre mountains. Its location makes it one of the premier trekking and climbing destinations on any of our Argentina tours.

This is one of the world’s most dramatic horizons with jagged vertical peaks that pierce the skyline.

The steepness of some of the faces prove a draw to some of the world’s most accomplished climbers, but there are also many easier treks and climbing expeditions for the less experienced traveller.
