we want to travel 25 days in Argentinia in December. We have planned around 10 days for the lake region around Bariloche and 10 days for South Patagonia.
We want to fly to El Calafate, take a rental car there (which we also have to bring back to Calafate to fly to Bariloche from there).
Starting from El Calafate we would like to see Perito Moreno, El Chalten/Fitz Roy and Torres del Paine.
Is it fine to drive this on our own?
Is it a problem to cross the border to Chile for Torres del Paine and back to Argentinia with the rental car?
I heard from a german tour operator that El Chalten is totally deserted after a volcanic eruption in May 2008. But i couldn't find anything in the web about that. Is that true at all?
Thanks for you help!
