Mount Fitz Roy Tours

Mount Fitz Roy, the highest mountain in Los Glacieres National Park, rises 3,405 m (11,168 ft) above the bare, sculpted mountains with blowing snow to a peak that only serious climbers will even consider. Its neighbor, 3,128 m (10,260 ft) Cerro Torre is no easier to crest, but their magnificent spires crown the parkland with its most recognizable formation.

Serious climbers can attempt either mountain between November and February, but keep in mind that even in summer, clear days are not guaranteed. Less ambitious hikers will find wonderful trails up into the granite wonderland, nowhere near the apex but high enough to enjoy views across the flowering fields and crystaline lakes. 

Practical Info

El Chatén, "The hiking capital of Argenitina," is a resort village located within Los Glacieres National Park. It is the starting point for several phenomenal walks, including climbs around Monte Fitz Roy and its sheer granite twin, Cerro Torre. 

The only way here is overland from El Calafate, with long, bruising bus-ferry connections to Buenos Aires (36 hours) and other Patagonian destinations It is served by El Calafate International Airport (FTE), with regular service from several cities in Argentina and Chile. Buses make the 220 km (136 mi) trip between El Calafate and El Chaltén throughout the day.
