Where to go when - our guide to El Chalten and the Fitz Roy Massif

Fitz Roy

The weather in El Chalten and the Fitz Roy Massif is wide and varied

Turquoise lagoons and lush beech forests skirt the ice-capped towers of the Fitz Roy massif. The landscapes are perfect for hikers, though you’ll want to plan your trip around the seasonal changes in weather conditions. The peak summer months (December - February) offer the most reliably warm and clear weather but also attract the highest volume of visitors. The pleasant shoulder seasons of spring and autumn offer blooming wildflowers and rich golden foliage respectively, with mild weather conditions and fewer crowds. In winter the climate grows cold, with snow storms and rainfall making some trails inaccessible.
