Day 2Trek to Cerro Torre
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.
