  • It is a must-see place. Check the forecast, because the weather change so fast. And check out my Instagram @alexandre_rapel to see suggestions of photography in Patagonia. Enjoy it
  • A few beautiful days camping near, at De Agostini. This wonderful glacier lake is different every day and hour. To be revisited...
  • (for more reviews, check out the nearby viewpoint "iceberg beach"). At the end of a 10km hike from El Chaltèn an outstanding view offers itself to the patient walker, of the Laguna Torre, with small icebergs floating on the lake add they broke off from the glacier who sets the base for the magnificent Cerro Torre peaks! The hike, while mostly flat, can be strenuous, so make sure you're in good condition, take water and some food and most importantly sunscreen and sunglasses with UV protection as the sun can be quite aggressive on a sunny day!
  • Unfortunately it was raining the whole day and we couldn't see more than the icebergs on the lake.. Was still very nice and impressive.
  • Beautiful hike to see moraine. ~22km and ~680m.
