We hiked out and back in 5.5 hours with a moderate pace, including a lot of photo stops along the way. The route starts close to the start of El Chalten, and you'll cover the around 200 of the ...

    From El Calafate, the town of El Chalten is about 2 1/2 - 3 hours away. The entire drive is incredibly scenic as you will have views of Lake Argentina Viedma to start with, and as you get closer to the town, Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre get closer with each passing kilometer. There is also one place ...

    Mount Fitz Roy is one of the most iconic mountains in the world and is still relatively undeveloped, allowing visitors to experience the landscape without the massive hoards of people. The best place to start the trek is in the town of El Chalten. I would recommend coming to the town with plenty ...

It’s a big pull out of the valley. Depending on what you’re carrying, some will find it easier than others. With a full...
