We took a late night bus (leaving at 9:00 pm) from El Calafate to El Chalten and had no idea what we were missing until we left to drive back. The whole Fitz Roy range is visible for you to see the whole time you...More
This is the only gas station in El Chalten and is easy to overlook. It's actually out of town on the road in/our of El Chalten. As you approach El Chalten, it's on the right side of the road--it's actually a SHIPPING CONTAINER! They do...More

While my first attempt to see Fitz Roy from this road was nixed by 5 days of rain, on my second attempt, this is what we got, the second day of our stay in El Chaltén. If you have any leeway in planning, watch your...More
