Why we like this camp

  • The camp is in a secluded location - only 18 guests can stay here at a time so you'll be well away from the crowds.
  • Stay in a cosy, modern, eco-friendly, geodesic dome.
  • You’ll feel that you are sleeping in the wild, but with all the comfort of a hotel room.
  • The only accommodation in El Chaltén to offer uninterrupted views of the magnificent Fitz Roy which presents stunning dawn photo opportunities.
  • The food is tasty, nourishing and freshly prepared each day.

Chaltén Camp is located a couple of miles from El Chaltén and as such is a haven of peace and tranquillity. It's ideal for those who seek calm and quiet while still relaxing in comfort at the end of each day.

About Chaltén Camp


From the closest airport at El Calafate, it's a 3¼-hr drive to Chaltén Camp.

The camp is located just two miles from the small town of El Chaltén, yet feels way more remote than this would suggest. It's set in a native forest, well away from the crowds, nestled between the Las Vueltas River and a huge granite wall.

It's the only property in El Chaltén to offer uniterrupted views of the magnificent Fitz Roy and there's really nothing else like it in town - it's a great option for those wanting to replicate the Torres del Paine glamping experience.

You can reach the camp by private transfer, or your own vehicle.

With the creek nearby, and the solitude, you can sit and watch sunset and sunrise at your leisure and listen to the trickle of water and tiny chirping birds. I also LOVED the hot water bottles provided for those fresh Patagonian mornings.
