The hike up is a bit challenging, but so worth it! The views from the entire trail are incredible. We stopped at Laguna Capri and several view points and each picture was better than the next. Perfect autumn weather in April, too! I have friends and family who have told me they are now using my pictures from this hike... More

Incredible day hike that takes you through many different elevations and flora. The hike up is an enjoyable challenge.

This is dead set the most amazing place I have ever visited. As a hiker and Landscape Photographer its about as good as it gets. We had stunning weather and great temperatures. The only sore point for me was looking a full SD memory card of photo's either at the camp site Pioncenot or at Laguna de la Tres. It... More

We had a lovely day for this hike - started out at Hosteria El Pilar and followed a lovely mostly flat or easy incliines all the way to the base of Mount Fitz Roy. The 1km climb up to the top was very hard but totally worth the amazing view that unfolds before you as you reach the top -... More

Best time to visit is a sunny day after snow,我是在4月下雪後的晴天去爬,簡直是仙境,比tripadvisor上的照片都美多了,放眼望去一遍白,加上湖泊的倒影,哇屋

We climbed just until the Laguna de los tres, not the Fitz itself. The night right before it snowed a bit, so that made the trekking and pics even better. We decided to start from Hosteria El Pilar (north) taking a bus from El Chaltén, so we did the track from north to south avoiding same path when returning (Pilar... More

I loved everything about this, even the snow covered final ascent which left me breathless. The Laguna de los Tres has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. There is a great sense of accomplishment in arriving at the top...but also a humbling given the tiny space you occupy next to these Cathedrals of nature.

Good hike and a few campsites along the way as well. If you get a nice clear day it is a beautiful view from the top. Warning there is a steep section near the top that will take about an hour to get to the top.

We spent a few days in El Chalten doing several hikes and Fitz Roy was the highlight. We were there during early February when there was unseasonably warm weather (about 25 celsius). After a recommendation from our hotel owner we caught an 8am bus to Hosteria el Pilar - which then means you are not doubling back and get to... More

We spent two days hiking in El Chalten, at the end of the peak season so the weather changes daily. It rained all day for the first hike to the Lake. To Cerro Fitz Roy we had snow all day. It was still truly beautiful through the green vegetation and up through the mountain. Completely covered in snow by the... More
