Six night Patogonia Trip - Questions

Jump to last reply

We are a family with one teenage son traveling to Patagonia RT Buenos Aires-El Calafate. What is the best way to divide our nights, given we want to visit El Calafate and Torres del Paine in Chile? I was thinking 3 nights in El Calafate, which will give us 2 full days to do the all glacier boat tour and the Moreno trekking trip. Where might be the best place to stay for a family that needs a pretty large room with 3 beds?
How hard is it then to get from El Calafate to TDP without a car and how long does it take? Where's the best place to stay in TDP, if Explora is too pricey? We MIGHT be able to afford Tierra Patagonia for 3 nights, but would like someone to tell me if they think it is worth it. Alternatively, would it be a wiser travel decision to stay on the Argentinian side and go up to El Chalten and Mt. Fitz Roy, Glaciers Nat. Park? Thanks for any input.
