2. El Chalten: Mount Fitz Roy &Laguna de Los Tres Full-Day Hike

The most classic, spectacular and unforgettable trekking in southern Patagonia. The visit to Laguna de los Tres is a classic of El Chaltén and one of the most beautiful viewpoints for the panoramic views of Fitz Roy. Although it is one of the longest trails, it is worth it. The activity will start with the pick up from the hotels at 06:00 AM. Then you will take the mythical Route 40 bordering the Lago Argentino and start your trip to the town of El Chaltén, 220 km from El Calafate. The transport will be waiting for you so that you can make the Fitz Roy Trail for 8 hours, covering a total of 20 km to reach 1,200 meters high. You will pass through different sceneries, some more wooded, others more austere and with water mirrors until you reach Laguna de los Tres. During the winter season, the main landscape is snow. We provide you with crampons and poles so you can walk safely. The first 4 kilometers will be to warm up, with an incredible view of the Rio de las Vueltas Valley, crossing forests and streams, until you reach Laguna Capri. Then you will continue along the same trail until km 8, where you will find the Poincenot Camping and the Rio Blanco, here begin the most difficult kilometers. In this instance we recommend to be attentive to the schedule, since to go down to the town from Laguna de los Tres will take approximately 4 hours. The return trail is the same as the outward trail; we suggest you pay attention to the only detour point which is Mirador del Fitz Roy. You should not take this path because in case of search or rescue, the indicated path is through Laguna Capri. At 7:00 p.m. we will meet again in town, where we will start our return trip.

Very good activities. This allowed us to hike to La Laguna de Los Tres. However, pay attention to the weather because when we went there, there was a lot of snow, so we had to stop 500m from the lake (behind the ridge). But the landscape is breathtaking.

It was well organized and exactly as advertised. I had plenty of time to get up the mountain, hang out, and be back in time for bus. The driver was friendly and engaging. Gracias Alex

Wonderful landscape, our driver was very kind and waited for us, as we ran a bit late. We were lucky to have had nice weather.

I liked very much. For those who don't have much time, as was my case, it's a great choice.

I would like you to explain the trekking course in English.
