Amazing hike with incredible views, not too difficult except the last hour, stop at Che Empanadas on the way to the hike for a quick lunch!

Get the bus/shuttle and start the hike at Hosteria El Pilar. Do the traverse from El Pilar to Cerro Fitz Roy (Laguna de los tres) and then back out to El Chalten to your lodging. 15.5 km appriximately and it will take you about 6+ hours on average but it is definitely worth it. The trail is extremely well signed and you cant get lost.

If you like hiking like I do, this is heaven. The trails are awesome, nice camping area, the town inside the Park is beautiful. Nice hostels too. Wish you good luck with the weather.

It was an absolute dream coming true, seeing Fitz Roy without clouds in the most perfect day ever. We could not have had more perfect weather. The climb is very very hard but totally worth it. Take your time going up, you’ll be rewarded the the most beautiful sight ever.

This hike was difficult for older people with dodgy knees as the track just keeps heading upwards. Even so, it was very worthwhile continuing as the view is just spectacular. Walking poles help bad knees considerably.

Really nice and beautiful trek, the last part is a bit difficult but worth the effort, the view is amazing. Make sure to get down and see the beautiful lake at left.

Good 6 hours roundtrip. Medium difficulty hike. Be sure to take some snacks to fuel up in the track. Near lago some crazy foxes good for photos

This hike claims to be a moderate level if you're not in some sort of shape it would be a hard trek. But not wanting to miss this beautiful scenery we went with a private guida it was well worth it if in El Chalten you have to do what is there to do. Unbelievable we hiked up to the base of Fitz Roy and had lunch it was post card weather. Unbelievable it is definitely worth the sore muscles. Like they say just do it

Looking back to our treks down here, both, the Cerro Fitz Roy and the Ausangate are the places to be. Not only because of the views and nature, but more because of the wildness, no groups around and to just feel far from everything. Roly, our tour guide during this hike was a crack in multi tasking, as the 6 of us were asking for different things at the same time. One of us even had problems with the altitude and Roy gave some local medicine here. The third day was definitely the toughest, due to its steep trail up and luckily our 4th day was to calm down. Our legs never had so much excercise than over here in South America. I think it's important to plan a few days off after coming back home, especially as we hade some issues with the jetlag in the beginning while landing in Buenos Aires.

The hike is long, but can be done in a day easily, and it’s a must if you are in Calafate and the weather permits it. The whole way there is breathtaking views, and at the end the mirador is amazing. The sky was super clear when we went, so couldn’t have asked for more. It was super windy, beware of this when you go. Enjoy!
