We are a family made up of 6 members: Gerardo and Rossana, the parents, Rocio, Macarena, Emiliano and Pilar, our children.
In 1988, we were lucky to get to El Chalten, and be among the first settlers of this beautiful place. Soon after settling, we gave our first steps in the tourism activity, organizing horse riding trips and transporting goods for expeditions attempting to climb the towering hills that surround us. Over the years we opened the El Relincho camping site, to which, year after year, we have added improvements for the comfort of our guests. Then we added three cabins equipped with warmth and comfort hoping that your stay at our resort will be pleasant and memorable.
We offer Cabins and Camping
El Relincho offers the convenience and comfort of its cabins.
The cabins are conveniently located over a large site close to the camping facilities which include playground, grills, multipurpose room and breakfast area.
They are fully equipped to accommodate 4 to 6 people and include 2 bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom.
