Mountain peaks in El Chalten

Arrival in El Chalten

Day 1

In the morning, your guide will pick you up at the airport and take you to El Chalten, the town near Viedma Lake and Mt Fitz Roy. En route, enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch. Check into your hotel and spend the afternoon at your leisure, relaxing at the hotel or going for a walk through town. El Chalten is a hiker's paradise - there are many hiking trails leading out deep into Patagonia's glaciers, lagoons, and peaks.

Patagonia Mountains Mt Fitz Roy

Trek to Cerro Torre

Day 2

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel and get ready for a 7-hour trek to Cerro Torre. This journey is a major trekking area in El Chaltén, Argentina's Trekking Capital. At the end, you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful view of the world's most difficult mountain: Cerro Torre (or Tower Hill). The trail starts from the village, walking along the Canyon of Fit Roy River. On the first track, contemplate beautiful waterfalls. After walking for about an hour and a half, make your first stop. Rest for a while as you admire Cerro Torre and its glaciers.

The second track consists of a walk through an alluring valley until arriving at De Agostini Base Camp, the meeting point for travelers from all over the world. Reach Laguna Torre (or Tower Lagoon) and the other rock formations surrounding the area, before returning by the same path. If the group feels energetic, a 45-minute hike to Maestri Viewpoint will take place, which is a natural balcony on the glacier and Laguna Torre.
Return to the hotel at around 4 pm.
