We had a rental car and were going to hike in El Chalten, so we took the 2-3 hour drive up there. We stopped 4 or 5 times along the way because the views were so incredible. Don't miss this if you can help it!

Taxis are available but where do you intend to travel from and to - the price will depend quite a bit on the route and itinerary you want them to follow
