You won't be climbing this one unless you're a world class climber! However, you will see this iconic rock repeatedly if you visit El Chalten. The best views, by far, are from the out and back trail from El Chalten to Laguna de los Tres - a tough trek from El Chalten - but the views are often limited by... More

One of the most beautiful mountain I saw in my life. It's not the highest, but it has something to it that makes it really, really special. You can see it from the closest village, (El Chalten), but what you really want to do there is do one of the many trekks that the city offers. And there are a... More

Stunning views, absolutely do not miss this hike. And bring your wind-breaker! However, there are lots of people going up and the trail leaving from town was not very enjoyable. Suggest starting from Hosteria El Pilar.

We realized that Torres del Paine is more for trekkers and Fitz Roy area is great for climbers. We are trekkers and like to just leisurely walk. There are multiple trails for any experience level. The routes are marked and times with each route. The scenery is fabulous. The city does not have a lot but they do have some... More

Cerro Fitz Roy is as beautiful in real life as it is in picture books and online. In fact I think it is much more astounding to see it than to photograph it. It is a must see mountain to observe and hike around if you go to Southern Patagonia.

Climbing to the Laguna Los Tres and walking back on a beautiful summer's day was stunning and I am so glad I did it although it was really tough for 3 out of the 7-8 hours we were walking. The mountains and the views are so beautiful it makes it all worth it. We are a couple in our late... More

A great place to hike. Only the last hour is strenuous, but otherwise it is just an enjoyable trek with gorgeous view. If you are not afraid of cold water (4 degrees), jump on the Lagoa dos Tres.

Great view of Cerro Fitz Roy. It is a 8 hour round trip so maybe not for everybody, but if you are reasonably fit it is well worth the hike! Just do it!

We came from Torres del Paine. The rock of the mountain is the same as the one of the Torres. For me it was not as mind blowing as many describe it but still worth the trip. More striking for myself was the view on our way down - very beautiful nature. From the city it took us 3 hours... More
