  • There are various trekking. We did the Capri Laguna and the viewpoint of the Fitz Roy. A wonderful experience. Incredible views. The cerro Torre and the Fitz Roy seem an image of another world. The laguna Capri... to relax is... beautiful!

  • More than 3 hours at the start of Calafate. But through this desert with these lamas, squonces or even (Yes, coincidence, he crossed the road in front of us) an Armadillo is top. The view over the famous Fitz Roy is worth, we just got it before that bad hiding all over the mountain. the city is dedicated to restore with lots of cafés, walkers and cycling. Plenty of more or less long and difficult circuits are available. Definitely worth a visit. We had unfortunately not enough time to make many choices...

  • From el Chaltén you're walking towards the cerro Fitz Roy. Already from the same station of collectives start to enjoy the beautiful landscape. If is a day cleared, how was my case, is extremely nice. You should go prepared with energy foods and drinks. Is can camping or you can go and return in an only day, but requires minimally of a moderate State physical. You have to leave early.
