This hike is incredible. It's quite long so plan accordingly. It's also very windy so dress for that. We were all tired by the end, but even the least experienced hikers among us said they were glad to have completed the hike.

Incredible hike with breathtaking views along the entire route. Accessible for all ages, last km is tough going but the prize is worth it. Basic toilet facilities along the way, but no food, water in streams is drinkable.

Incredible in person. Make the effort to backpack and wake up super early to watch the sunrise. Dress warmly because the wind and crazy weather in Patagonia will keep you on your toes.

There’s not much more I can say/add that hasn’t already been said below. Watch out for the weather! We hiked this in not so great weather.. If you’re prepared for the rain/wind/cold, it’s no so bad. If you’re not, it will be miserable. The wind...More

My most favourite hiking trail along the glacier, I enjoyed very clean and fresh air along the trail, also saw lovely double rainbows till reach the laguna.

Best hike of my three week tour of Patagonia. Don't miss it. Take food (chocolate and caffeine help) and water to maintain energy for the last part of the hike. Go by yourself or hire a private guide - don't go with a group. This...More

We chose this route at the park rangers suggestion, because the weather wasn’t due to be so good, but was supposed not to be windy. The walk is not particularly strenuous, but the weather is key. It closed in when we were there and began...More

This walk is locally known as Sendero al Fitz Roy. It's a beautiful hike through forests, marshlands and up a mountain. The route is about 10 kilometers one way, with sign posts every kilometer. Most if the walk was easy, except a difficult last kilometer....More

Best walk in the area. Initial hour is uphill then largely flat with stunning panoramic views of Fitz Roy range, last 45mins is step and big steps but worth every step as you get close to Fitz Roy and lagoon. Take a picnic and enjoy...More

Hi. We were in El Chaltén in November 2017. My husband is 56 and I am 46; we are reasonably fit but not athletic, and we wouldn't call ourselves hikers. We prepared for Patagonia by taking successively longer walks in the... More

We booked through our hotel (Senderos). They told us about it at check-in, and we were so grateful they did - it made the hike about a thousand times better.

YES, in one word. It will generally be level all the way, then downhill to the village/town. Great day hike. If the spires are clear you will see them on the later half of the hike. The 'steep 1 km climb' is steep, but I... More
