Day 1

This morning, meet your guide at the airport and set out for El Chaltén, a hiker’s paradise located close to Viedma Lake and Mount Fitz Roy.

Explore the many hiking trails around El Chaltén that lead deep into the heart of Patagonia and encounter its magnificent glaciers, lagoons and peaks.

Patagonia Mountains Mt Fitz Roy

Trek to Cerro Torre

Day 2

Get ready for a 7-hour trek to Cerro Torre, one of the most popular hikes in El Chaltén, Argentina's trekking capital. The trail starts from the village and follows the Canyon of Fitz Roy River. On the first track, contemplate the cascading waterfalls and continue walking for another hour and a half. Then pause for a break, and experience an incredible view of the world's most difficult mountain to climb, Cerro Torre. Rest here and admire Cerro Torre and the grandeur of the surrounding glaciers.

The second track meanders through the valley before reaching De Agostini Base Camp, a popular meeting point for travelers from all over the world. Hike to Laguna Torre and view the unique rock formations in the area before returning by the same route. For the extra energetic, there’s an optional forty-five-minute hike to Maestri Viewpoint, a spectacular natural balcony overlooking the icy glacier flowing through the mountain pass and Laguna Torre. Return to the hotel in the late afternoon.

Consider hiking to Laguna de los Tres to test your endurance and be rewarded with generous alpine views. Depending on your fitness level, this extension tour takes three to five hours. A picnic lunch is included on the trek. After descending, transfer to Estancia Nibepo Aike located within Los Glaciares National Park, check-in and retire for the rest of the evening.
