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

The best view of Fitz Roy is from El Lago de los tres, and there is a shortcut if you take the morning bus up around the mountain to El Pilar, and then when you hike down, just go straight back to El Chalten. Ask your hostel to sell you a ticket to El Pilar. They leave at 8am and... More

If you're looking for great scenery, variable geography and not strenuous hike. This one is for you. It is Patagonia, so expect the unexpected, that includes no visibility, rain, winds, hail, etc.

When you reach the crest and look down at the lake in front of the hanging glaciers, it is spectacular. But then you must descend to the lake and hike up the little hill/knob to your left. From there you will see another lake and more hanging glaciers, absolutely beautiful!

The hike was easy to medium difficulty - doable for kids 7+ that are athletic. I have seen a lot of beautiful panoramic views in my life and the view of Fitz Roy,the lake, the ice blue glacier, and a waterfall shooting out was possibly the most spectacular view I have ever enjoyed. Amazing. Also, the people on the hike... More

Such a beautiful walk, with fantastic views of the mountains. Many guides suggest taking a tour bus to Hotel el Pilar to start this walk so that it is circular, rather than out and back from El Chalten. We did this and it was lovely, but in fact the views of the mountains are much better on the path direct... More

Lovely hike through lots of terrain, beautiful views of Mount Fitzroy and neighbouring lagoons. Lots of different walks you can do from 6 hours (all the way to the base of fitzroy) to 1 1/2 hours to the lookout point.
