Tour Location

Nestled within Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park, El Chaltén is often dubbed the 'Trekking Capital of Argentina.' A gateway to the breathtaking landscapes of Patagonia, this quaint town offers a front-row seat to the majestic spires of Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. The area teems with glacial lakes, dense forests, and trails that beckon adventurers and photographers alike. El Chaltén is not just a destination; it's a haven for those seeking serenity amidst nature's grandeur.

Cerro Fitz Roy:

Dominating the Patagonian skyline, Cerro Fitz Roy stands tall at 3,405 meters. Also known as Monte Fitz Roy, this granite mountain is often compared to the Himalayas for its technical climbing challenges. However, even non-climbers find solace in its beauty. Numerous trails, like the one leading to Laguna de Los Tres, offer panoramic views of its jagged peaks. Surrounded by glacial waters, the mountain's silhouette during sunrise or sunset is a photographer's dream come true.

Laguna de Los Tres:

This iconic glacial lake offers one of the most postcard-perfect views of Cerro Fitz Roy. Located at the end of a moderately challenging trek, the lake's name translates to 'Lagoon of the Three,' referring to the three peaks it showcases: Fitz Roy, Poincenot, and Saint-Exupéry. The final ascent to the lake is steep, but the breathtaking vistas of turquoise waters set against the backdrop of towering peaks make every step worth the effort.

Cerro Torre:

Another jewel in Patagonia's crown, Cerro Torre's needle-like peak reaches 3,128 meters. Clouds often shroud its summit, adding an air of mystique. Known as one of the most challenging mountains to climb globally, its sheer granite faces have become legends in the climbing community. For those less inclined towards climbing, the Laguna Torre trail offers an accessible way to appreciate the mountain's grandeur, culminating at a lake with the Cerro Torre peak reflecting in its serene waters.
