How was your experience in El Chalten?

El Chalten was an amazing town, we loved the food at all the restaurants we tried and loved our accomodations at El Puma. Our favorite hike was Loma de Pliegue de Tolumba because of the amazing view at the top, but the Laguna de los Tres was also stunning. The hiking was harder and longer than I had prepared for, so definitely bring your hiking sticks. Our guide Sebastian with Walk Patagonia was great and we loved our time with him.

Has your experience changed your perspective in any way?

I am going to look into carbon offsetting with airlines to make up for the impact of my flights when I travel.

Is there anything you would recommend we change to make trips like yours more environmentally sustainable?

I would be interested to receive information on local organizations that support environmental protection and sustainability in the area I visit so I can choose to donate to them.

Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Patagonia?

Make sure you review packing lists before you go - you can easily get all 4 seasons in one day in Patagonia. Also, the hikes to the best lookout spots are all longer in length so look up the hikes and train appropriately before you leave. It can also be challenging to withdraw cash from ATMs at certain times, so be prepared. We came across a lot of empty ATMs in Buenos Aires!
