I've spent two days there but I hope to go back. Weather changes quickly, it was raining at 10am but the skies where clean at noon. Don't forget your camera, the view of Fitz Roy during the hike is unforgettable. It is VERY windy so elderly could have a little difficulty in some moments. As it is windy, an umbrella... More

I hiked from the village of El Chalten to the base of Cerro Fitz Roy. The trail was very well marked and the scenery was beyond comprehension as everywhere I looked I was speechless. The steep climb (the last 1.5km) up to the foot of Cerro Fitz Roy to Laguna de los Tres is rewarded with jaw-dropping views of the... More

I feel in love with this mountain! I only saw it from afar (from overlooks) but it's impressive and enhances the already beautiful landscape.

A bunch of diferent micro climates and landscape views in 7:30hs of trekking. The smal but deep blue lake at Fitz Roy base worth the effort! A good tip is to get a van, you can book it one day in advance in any hostel or hotel, and start the trekking from "Hosteria El Pilar", doing this way you won't... More

This is the top attraction of this region. Without reducing the interest and beauty of many other places in this region, the Fitz Roy beats them all. You have to be lucky, as the view is not always great, but that is expected. But, if you're lucky to get some clear days, be sure to at least on one of... More

The best view we got from the Fitzroy wasn´t from the View Point. It was from Lago del Desierto with an awesome perspective. The view point, close from Camping Poincenot, can be cloudy, depending of the day. It is also a pretty crowded spot.

A brilliant trail. Would recommend you take the morning transit (you need to book on the minibus) at 8am to the top of the estancia so you don't have to re-trace your trail from el chalten there and back. You can just do one loop. The final climb takes about an hour and is TOUGH! You need to be fairly... More

A good friend of mine recommended visiting this place as it was some of the most beautiful scenery she has ever seen - she wasn't lying! We were lucky with the weather but this region really took my breath away. Some bits of the walk like the final bit up to Laguna Los Tres is strenuous but if there isn't... More

This isn't a tourist attraction that one really 'goes to', if you go to El Chalten, you'll possibly see it all the time, no matter where you are! The mountain, like most others has an distinct shape and if you see it once, you'll be able to pick out its peak amongst 100 other pictures. We did a short 4... More
