  • 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.

  • 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.
  • It's pretty tall.
  • Grand, impressive and cold ... 😁
  • This giant of Patagonia is truly amazing, you should be aware many people do treks for the day, so can be busy after 9 AM. The colors during the sunrise are truly spectacular. The mountain range itself is just one of the most wonderful places on earth.
  • Crazy beautiful mountain. Well worth the hike. Camping is totally free and a lot less commercialized than Torres Del Paine. Awesome and well marked trails all around the region. One of those places you never forget.
