Hike to Mt. Fitz Roy, El Chaltén
This hiking excursion to Fitz Roy embarks from a trailhead just outside the town of El Chaltén and lasts all day (day hikes to Fitz Roy often take about 11 hours). The trail leads up through an alpine forest, complete with views of Piedras Blancas Glacier, all the way to Laguna de los Tres. This body of water earned its name because it affords panoramic views of not just Fitz Roy's peak, but two others as well: Aguja Poincenot and Cerro Torre. All told it's a 16-mile (26 km) hike that allows you to take in some of the best views in all of Argentine Patagonia.
