Tim and Carla spent their honeymoon in Argentina and Chile mixing Buenos Aires luxury with trekking the W Circuit of Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia. They’ve been kind enough to share some of their experiences on the Swoop blog. This second post is about a relaxing and comfortable hotel they used at the base of Mount Fitz Roy in the small town of El Chalten, gateway to Los Glaciares National Park.
‘What a great, reasonably priced hotel this is in the small town of El Chalten. Although the rooms are on the small side, they are cosy and warm, and the lounge area is nice to sit in if you need some space. Natalia and Eduardo were welcoming and very informative for advice regarding walks, excursions and restaurants. Definitely go to La Tapera to eat by the way. Eduardo (whose English is superb) is also keen for guests to help him use up his extensive whiskey collection if feeling sociable. Breakfast is basic but fills a hole. What a super base for checking out the walks and activities in this beautiful national park.”
