Classic – Fitz Roy + Torre

A spectacular and unforgettable camping trek, that has great views and takes you through lovely forests until you arrive at the mystical Mt Fitz Roy and the famous Mt Torre. You will also see lagoons and imposing glaciers, also. Don`t miss these highlights!

Day 1
Trek to Laguna De los Tres and camp at Poincenot

We will leave El Chaltén in a transfer to the trailhead, El Pilar, half an hour away. We then start this lovely walk in a forest on a path that ascends gently and first arrives at Piedras Blancas Glacier viewpoint. We´ll have a brief stop here to enjoy the view of the hanging glacier. After a bit more gentle climbing; the challenging section of steep uphill to get to Laguna de los Tres, starts. The effort is all made worthwhile by the breathtaking views we get at the top, of Mt Fitz Roy and its satellite mountains.

Weather permitting; we will have lunch at the lagoon.
