Is a 4 wheel drive necessary to go from El Calafate to Torres del Paine NP?

by matanee

We plan on travelling by car from El Calafate to Perito Moreno Glacier, to El Chalten and to Torres del Paine National Park and to go around in the park a bit. What is the state of the roads there? Is it necessary to rent a 4x4 or will a normal car do? (The 4x4 are a lot more expensive). Does anyone know an affordable car rental company there?

Just to add to my question, we plan on going there in the middle of december.

Went everywhere except Torres del Paine, but our VW GOL got us everywhere we needed to go. The roads are fine, they just completed a road between El Calafate to El Chalten. If your guide book is more than a couple years old it won't have this info. With the price of gas, and the price difference of a large 4X4, I would get a little car that can get you to almost any trail head. By the way, we had no problem grabbing a car in El Calafate for about half the rates on-line, and this in Dec.

Travel Tips for El Calafate

Perito Moreno - 1 hour walk

by perfectly_zen

When you get to perito Moreno, thereýs an hour walk to get nearer to the glacier.....it?s not hard, and youýll enjoy it a lot, as youýll get at the margin of Canal de los Tempanos and very close to the icebergs....

Warm clothes

by Maggies

I was here at the end of summer and I was just freezing when visiting the glacier. On the boat it was cold that I had to stay inside drinking hot tea instead of whisky with glacier ice.
Make sure you take gloves, cap, good shoes, some warm clothes and a rain coat.

Where is Clint Eastwood?

by perfectly_zen

El Chalten is a very, VERY small town....it is composed of an "avenue" called Av. San Martin, where all the guesthouses are located. There are no bus stations, all buses stop in front of Rancho Grande backpacker?s, associated with HI. There is a little market, but obviously the prices are a bit higher than those of calafate, so it?s not a bad idea to bring some food with you, if you are willing to save some money.
In the summer, the city gets invaded by lots of trekkers...
When we went to Chalten, in october, it was quite strange to be the only one outside....we could hear the wind blowing, all the houses were closed, it looked like one of those western,cowboy?s movies...hehehe...but inside the hostel there were many tourists so in december, january it´s a good idea to make reservations. =)

Perito Moreno Glacier

by barryg23

The Perito Moreno glacier is what attracts almost all tourists who visit El Calafate. The glacier is located 80km west of the town, in Parque Nacional los Glacieres, and its beauty and popularity has turned what was once a small village into the tourist trap that is El Calafate today.

Buses leave El Calafate for the park in the mornings and afternoons, giving you plenty of time to explore. As you approach the park, keep your eyes peeled for your first view of Perito Moreno glacier - even if you've seen it before in pictures or posters, this 30km long, 5km wide, 60m high glacier is a breathtaking sight.

The glaciar is just one of the many beautiful glaciers in the national park, all of which flow from the Southern Patagonian ice sheet. Unlike most of the world's glaciers, Perito Moreno is not retreating. In fact it advances about 2m per day, which means it sometimes causes a dam in Lago Argentina - a compelling sight, especially when the dam collapses.

Once you bus drops you off, clearly marked trails lead down to various look out points over the glacier. Even if you only stay for a couple of hours there is a good chance you will see the lacier calving - a noisy, beautiful and unforgettable sight.

LAGO ARGENTINO

by galy

Argentinean Lake is the source of the Santa Cruz River in Argentina and the third in size in South America with a total surface of 1,560 km2. It is located 185 m above sea level. It is 60 km long and between 14 and 20 km wide. Its depth varies between 35 and 1,000 meters, but in the central part and on the Southern shore facing Avellaneda Peninsula, it is 300 meters deep.
Argentinean Lake is the source of the Santa Cruz River, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean.
The especial color of the water is due to a very fine powder produced by glacier abrasion, called “glacial melt water”.
