  • Hike that climbs a bit at the beginning but that is then a beautiful walk with FitzRoy point of reference. It's just sublime, a bit spiritual... attention even when the last kilometer is more akin to climbing only to trekking, it's just hell if you have good legs. All up... the reward with the Emerald Green Lake, the FitzRoy massif, the blue sky and the small fleecy clouds is perfect for the photo (I know, got a lot of chance). Just a killer...

  • Just speechless, indescribable, incomparable, invincible, gigantic, majestic and with incredible magnitude. The powerful nature and Fitz Roy is the proof of it all, beauty and strength.

  • Start your hike from El Chalten, spend all the day in this incredible part of Argentina, enjoying the nature. Do not forget to take picture, best season I suggest autumn. Bring with your a pair of sticks in order to better hike, overall during last 100m ascending, descending part.
  • Unforgettable views. Great for hikes that are easy to navigate. Stunning location, I took photos for a wedding at Laguna Sucia.
  • Even if in some why it is very close to the Italian Dolomiti, this mountain has a great personality. It has been climbed by different famous people and it is considered a must to do. The environment is fantastic but to see it you must be lucky because of often difficult whether conditions.
  • Great hikes great views
  • It's pretty tall.
