Breathtaking nature all along the path to the last kilometer to Laguna de los Tres. The last bit is very steep and challenging and really makes you feel like you have conquered yourself when you reach the top. Amazing!

We hiked up from Hosteria El Pilar to the viewpoint overlooking the glacier and lake below Fitz Roy. A stunning set of spires. The beech forest is interesting and unlike anything we'd seen.

Fitz Roy is amazing if "he" wants to come out and say hello. We were in l Chalten 4 days and got some great (and not great) views of this incredible and scenic massif.

We are staying at Hotel Destino Sur and will have a car. We like the look of a day hike to Fitzroy, is it possible to buy/download route maps for the hike. Thank you.

The trail head is at the back of the town, you can't miss it. Plus people are very helpful if you ask around.
