Great camping and hiking!

Camped for a few nights here with friends. The camp sites have a lot less amenities than other parks (like Torres Del Paine in Chile) but I honestly liked it so much better... read more

Camped for a few nights here with friends. The camp sites have a lot less amenities than other parks (like Torres Del Paine in Chile) but I honestly liked it so much better. There are crowds, but not nearly as many. Wonderful scenery and hiking. If you can, wake up early to catch sunrise up on fitz roy. Beautiful!!

We camped for 5 days around Cerro Fitzroy and Cerro Torre and while day hikes are easy from El Chaltén try to camp. This way you will witness amazing sunrises and sunsets and avoid some of the crowds. The weather is tricky so more vs. less flexibly in your schedule is helpful. Still thinking about this place.

The hike to Cerro Fitz Roy is a memorable one. The whole hike is very nice. The last bit is challenging, but rewarding. Beware of strong winds. We needed to sit down when the gusts come in. Awesome experience.

This is a beautiful trek to start with but for roughly the last hour it does get quite hard to climb but it's worth the trek. Take a picnic and chill out with some beautiful scenery before making your way back down. Walking poles will help but not necessary.

That hike was bit long, but at the end the view from Laguna de Los Tres was worth it. This peak is a symbol of Patagonia and mountains.

This is a beautiful area from the start, and the trail up Fitz Roy is well maintained. Our group had trekkers of all levels and ages, and the climb was very manageable. As happens, there are a couple of points when you think you're right about to be greeted by the postcard vista, only to see another hill to climb.... More

Heaven -- worth every bead of sweat to see these amazing spires up close. The Lago Torre trail is moderate, the Lago de los Tres is hard, but the final view is unsurpassed. Bring water, food, hiking sticks, be ready for weather changes.

I'm not the most experienced hiker. I like to hike but I wouldn't say I do it regularly enough to be a seasoned pro. Hiking the Cerro Fitz Roy (called El Chalten by people of the area due to the darker history attached to Captain Fitz Roy) was one of the hardest things I've ever done in my entire life.... More
