El Chalten and the Fitz Roy Massif: Trek in Los Glaciares National Park

Trek in Los Glaciares National Park

Difficulty rating:


The jagged peaks of Los Glaciares National Park frame some of South America’s most dramatic trekking territory. For lovers of the great outdoors, we recommend this three-day hiking and ice trekking adventure covering all the park’s main highlights.

Setting off from the Rio Blanco, you’ll first follow a trail tracing the riverbank through dense subantarctic beech forests before rising up through the valley to sweeping views of the Piedras Blancas glacier. Beyond the river lies a panorama familiar from many a postcard: the Laguna de Los Tres, where the photogenic peaks of the Fitz Roy massif rise up from a vivid turquoise lake to pierce the skyline. Spend the night camping nearby, surrounded by awe-inspiring natural scenery.

On your second day, hike past the beech-fringed Madre y Hija lagoon and on into enchanted woodland; it’s not far to another iconic viewpoint across to the pointed granite spikes of Mount Torre.

Finally on day three you’ll enjoy a new vantage point with a panoramic boat trip to the sprawling Viedma glacier and an unforgettable ice trek across its sapphire-blue terrain.
