Argentina: El Chalten and the Fitz Roy Massif

Visit Us

The vast ice fields in Los Glaciares National Park, southern Patagonia, are a primeval wilderness from which flow 13 huge glaciers into the waters of lakes Viedma and Argentino. The dark beech forests, gem-clear lagoons and the lonely steppes skirting the ice-capped towers of the Fitz Roy massif in the northern area of the park add to the beauty of this ideal landscape for hikers. El Chaltén is a small purpose-built town with tourist facilities and the principal base for visits to the area.

Our insider tips for El Chalten and the Fitz Roy Massif

Claire Milner

Claire Milner

Do the exhilarating trek to Laguna de los Tres, from where there are superb views over the spiky pillars of Fitz Roy.

Chris

Chris Rendell-Dunn

Read 'The Tower: A Chronicle of Climbing and Controversy on Cerro Torre' before you embark on the trek to Laguna Torre. Cerro Torre, a soaring needle of granite puncturing the sky, is one of the world’s most challenging and technically difficult climbs summits and knowing the story of its ascent only enhances the experience of seeing it for yourself.

What our experts say

I can heartily recommend a day trek from El Chaltén. The walking is not too steep or demanding, and there are panoramic views of lakes, glaciers and forests all along the way. You aren't far out of El Chaltén but you might as well be on another continent, so great is the wilderness feel in a region hardly trodden by Man.
