November suggestions, B.A, Iguazu, El Calefete

I am going in November with another couple for around 10 to 14 days. Hopefully the weather will have warmed up as I do not know what to pack. My plan was to spend a night in Iguazu to see the falls, fly to El Calafete and need to figure out how many nights to spend (and how far it is to go to El Chalten for a night). I will spend the rest of the time in B.A.

I assume that in El Calafete with 4 of us it may make sense to rent a car. Assuming the weather will allow the all day Big Ice Trek , and the all glaciers boat tour the next day so no one has to walk again.

If I do not do anything else that would be 2 nights or should I add time for El Chalten while I am there? I understand that it is a 2 hours away.

I do not have anything booked yet and need to start booking airfare. Just looking for suggestions or someone who had a similar successful itinerary.
