This is surely the main attraction of El Chalten. The trial to get there is quite easy in the begning, but it gets hard on the last kilometer. Tiresome, but worth the way up

Unbelievably beautiful mountain. We hiked to Laguna De Los Tres and we were simply wowed. I could not stop looking at the mountain. We ate lunch at the lake at the base of the mountain and stared in wonder the entire time. We were fortunate enough to have perfect weather and we saw several climbers high on the glacier attempting... More

Near the visitor center at entrance to town, you can do the 2 km Mirador Condores trail. It is uphill but not that bad. Takes about 20-30 minutes to get up there. I brought some champagne and glasses up for new years eve. On a clear night can see so much.

it is definitely the star of El Chalten! We were lucky to see it without cloud the first day of our arrival. It is somehow more beautiful with cloud around!

Incredible to see from the Lago de los Tres Hike. I think hiking Fitz Roy is very advanced, but it is an incredible site to see!

We loved our two-day stay in El Chalten. We did three different hikes with our children ages 10-17 and they were able to do them just fine and enjoy the beautiful and varied landscape of the Andes in Patagonia. Our first day was the long hike to Laguna de los Tres. We booked a shuttle the night we arrived to... More

If you have even 1 day to spare, it is worth the 2.5 hour drive from El Calafate. We were doubtful about the long drive but Mt Fitz Roy and the small town of El Chalten were definitely worth it. The mountain is stunning and I wish we had time to view it more closely but even the 2 hour... More

We drove out to El Chalten on a perfect but early morning... The drive was 2.5 hrs but worth every mile! We enjoyed the day of hiking and scenic beauty... we only made it to lago de los tres... but great hike, trails well marked. We didn't have tour guide but it wasn't necessary.
