The view at the end is spectacular. The first kilometer or two has an incline, but not too bad. Then it is a nice easy hike until the last kilometer. I'm in shape, not a hiker, but in good shape. This last kilo is a killer, be prepared. Take your time, we did it in 40 minutes but that was... More

Seeing Cerro Fitz Roy has been a dream of mine for some time now. The shape of the mountain is simply unique (just like the Cerro Torre). I was very lucky to see it in sun several times. I did the hike from the Hosteria Pilar (se my review) where one sees it from different angles.

We did the hike in one day. It took us 8 hours. The first km is uphill, then a nice walk in beautiful scenery for another 8 km. The last km is strenuous going up 400 m. It was a bit crowded on the last part to the laguna Los Tres. Walking sticks are recommended. Don't miss the beautiful laguna... More

This is a long trek with a lot of things to see during the walk. You have the option of camping in two different places in case you want to take longer. It could be perfectly well done in a day (9hours round trip), although if you are not fit enough it's going to be tough, so make sure you... More

One of the most beautiful hikes I've ever made. We were able to hike 16kms roundtrip in 6hours. Had lunch in front of Laguna Capri, which was super cold, but beautiful!

We heard about this Mountain from friends and are glad we made the effort to visit from El Calafate. We are not hikers but wanted to see the view. One of the best views from a distance is at the look out (Mirador) 100 kms drive from El Calafate to El Chalten. By the time we got to El Chalten... More

do not miss it, we took it easy and it took us 10 hours. be sure to take at least 2 big bottles to the final climb of 500 meters. it looks short but it is hard.

All I can say is lace em up and get ready to stretch your legs because the last 1.5 km of this hike will get the blood flowing. If you're lucky, like my wife and I were, you'll get a clear day and the views will be unlike anything you've ever seen.

The best walk in El Chaltén! It took us 4 hours to go all the way up and other 4 hours to get back. The last km will definitely kill you if you do it with strong wind (as we did), it is quite hard to do if not properly trained.....but reaching the "Laguna de Los Tres" is an experience... More
