About
We will start at 7:30 in the morning with the pick up from the hotels in El Calafate. Finished it, we will undertake a trip to the town of El Chaltén (National Capital of Trekking) 220 km from El Calafate. On our tour, we will cross the Santa Cruz River, and we will stop for a few minutes at Estancia La Leona, next to the river of the same name. We will continue on our way to El Chaltén, bordering Lake Viedma. Upon arrival in Chaltén, we will have 5 hours to enjoy this small mountain town (if you choose the option with a box lunch or lunch, read the details). To tour the place, we have 2 options: - Enabled all year round: Visit the Mirador de los Cóndores and the Chorrillo del Salto Accompanied by the guide. - From September to April - (Subject to weather conditions): make part of the trail to Fitz Roy, reaching Laguna Capri (self-guided trail of 8 km round trip). To return, we will all meet at a previously arranged meeting point.

On my first day in Calafate I found Patagonia Dreams on the main street of town, and booked excursions for the next four days.
They were extremely helpful and friendly, giving advice according to my person al wants and needs.
Every day they sent a WhatsApp message telling me the exact pick-up time at my hotel for the next day's trip.
The driver were professional and on time. The guide were considerate, friendly and always explain Ed everything to me in English, although all my fellow travelers spoke Spanish.
My 4 excursions were amazing:
1. Perito Moreno Glacier (walking)
2. Glacier Boat ride
3. El Chalten
4. Visit to an Argentina ranch.

Patagonia Dreams also gave me a free transfer to the airport, and went out of their way to ensure I got on the correct flight (I had given them erroneous information, and they were worried about me!).

We had a Fabulous day in good weather but it would have been a long way to go if it was very cloudy. Comfortable mini bus. Efficient pickup and a very passionate and highly knowledgable guide who gave us limitless information. We chose the 3 hour self guided hike but there was a shorter option or you could stay in El Chalaten. Highly recommended

It was raining all day but we were hoping we would still be able to see the mountains. We ended up spending 6 hours in the bus to only see clouds. I probably would have bailed and chose to do something else if I knew I wouldn't see anything.

Hello. We are deeply sorry for your bad experience during the activity. Unfortunately, the weather is something we cannot control. Being located in the area near ​the Andes mountains, makes the weather change very fast. We hope to see you back soon in El Calafate. The Patagonia Dreams team

We had a great time! The journey started with 1.5hr bus, then a stop at La Leona, then another hour bus. After, we start out 4 hour hike to the lake with a great view of Mt Fitz Roy. Tiring hike but absolutely worth it. Our tour guide was very informative and really knows her history and numbers.

Our day started with pickup from hotel. But on the way to El Chalten the bus had a problem and hence we reached late. We were supposed to reach El chalten at 12 and have lunch there, instead we reached at 230. Our plan was to do trekk at El chalten n start by 5, instead v started at 640. We had to do trekk fast & have lunch while doing trekk (which is a bit hard)

We were dropped off at 9.45pm at El Chalten! This was bad because most restaurants were closed by then (fortunaltely we got food that day)

Anyways, we reached safely. I'd suggest to stay away from Patagonia Dreams since most likely a rare chance to travel El chalten with family. One day vacation requires attention to detail. Opt for someone else who is more reliable. May be Antatur/Baft/so many operators available out there. Self guided with help from tourist center is an option as well.0

This was a good way to do a “must see” in Patagonia. It was a long drive from El Calafate, but our guide really helped pass the time by sharing her expertise on the region— history, ecology, geology, etc. The format of the trip was great— you could do the long hike or opt for the two shorter trips to the waterfall and the viewpoints. The latter gave you time for a relaxing time in the town. I would give this a 4.5 if that were an option— the only reason it would not be a 5 is because the microphone system in the bus didn’t work so it was hard to hear our guide, and the sack lunch was not great. Otherwise, a great trip.
