El Chalten is charming and appealing for hikers as very few places on Earth and the 8-9 hours trail to the base of Cerro Fitzroy (Laguna de los Tres) tops it all. This is a moderate trail all the way up to its last hour, when it gets steep and, in cold months, icy.Take a pack lunch to savour while... More

We took the first morning bus from El Calafate to do a day hike around the Fitz Roy and it was fabulous. We did the hike from El Chalten to Laguna de los Tres and though it would have been fun to have been able to do a longer hike, this worked out great. We watched the weather and decided... 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
