I spent nearly 3 weeks in Patagonia, and Mt. Fitz Roy was one of my favorite sites - a hike that brought us 20 miles R/T and 2,600 ft. to the mountain’s viewpoint. The trek starts at the base of Puerto Natales, where you wrap around woodland and riverbanks before the sky opens to mountaintops. From here, you climb steep... More

The scenery, wildlife alone are amazing every step of the way on this hike. Some breath taking view points take a pack lunch and water bottle can refill in the fresh water streams ask your guide where they are. Not too strenuous but well worth it on a clear day it's amazing! View at the top is like a postcard... More

I walked here in mid-May, which was late Autumn getting into Winter. This walk is a classic and should not be skipped over. It is really reasonable walking for a fairly fit person, with the majority of walking being quite easy. It is approximately 10 km from the trail head to the Lago de los Tres, and the majority of...

An all-day and medium difficulty hike with a steep finale to the peak. The view is totally worth it.

Fitzroy is definitely one of the most beautiful mountains in the world, and I've seen the Matterhorn plus Ama Dablam and Machupuchre in Nepal. For me, no matter how many pictures you've seen, there is no substitute for seeing it in person.

I guess most people who stop in El Chalten are there for the hike, but for those who aren't, please don't miss it. Probably the most beautiful place i have ever been. The hike isn't too hard, and the camping is fabulous. There weren't many people around when i was here, but i can imagine it gets crazy. Try heading... More

A stunningly beautiful day. Clear blue skies and no wind. Drove to Hosteria del Pilar to the start of the track to the viewpoint for Glaciar Piedro Blancas and Laguna de los Tres. Beautiful walk up a river valley with Nothofagus trees and a climb up into the hills for some spectacular mountain and glacier views. Stopped for lunch in... More

Hike awesome. A MUST do! But do NOT rent from Camping Center (they are on Av San Martin, at the corner of Riquelme) in El Chalten. There are several other rental locations to choose from. We chose Camping Center because they claimed to have better equipment but that is false. Our tent had two holes that leaked from the dew... More

Well worth it. Less crowded that Torres Del Paine. Make sure to watch the sunrise at the Mt. Fitzroy up top in the morning. Easy hikes and navigation.

We did 4-day hike in El Chalten and really liked it, the scenery is amazing! Specially we were impressed by the view at Mirador Laguna de Los Tres, beautiful turquoise color lake, mauntain reflection in the water and Firt Roy on the background. We were lucky with the weather it was sunny, clear sky and no wind at all which... More
