The hike is long, but can be done in a day easily, and it’s a must if you are in Calafate and the weather permits it. The whole way there is breathtaking views, and at the end the mirador is amazing. The sky was super...More

If I'd had to choose, I'd come here again instead of hiking in Washington back home. The place has been very remote and our chalet was first class. From far we've seen several groups taking another tour here but our 3 day trip was far...More

What a magic place! First 4 hour hike is easy. The last hour is tough since it it ice and snow and frozen mud and quite steep. At least bring a walking stick to support you in the way down. These walkingsticks and other gear...More

If this is not on your bucket list, it should be! This is what it is like before the hordes of people start showing up on tour buses. If you want to enjoy a beautiful place, go now!

This hike is incredible. It's quite long so plan accordingly. It's also very windy so dress for that. We were all tired by the end, but even the least experienced hikers among us said they were glad to have completed the hike.

Incredible hike with breathtaking views along the entire route. Accessible for all ages, last km is tough going but the prize is worth it. Basic toilet facilities along the way, but no food, water in streams is drinkable.

Incredible in person. Make the effort to backpack and wake up super early to watch the sunrise. Dress warmly because the wind and crazy weather in Patagonia will keep you on your toes.

There’s not much more I can say/add that hasn’t already been said below. Watch out for the weather! We hiked this in not so great weather.. If you’re prepared for the rain/wind/cold, it’s no so bad. If you’re not, it will be miserable. The wind...More

We booked through our hotel (Senderos). They told us about it at check-in, and we were so grateful they did - it made the hike about a thousand times better.

YES, in one word. It will generally be level all the way, then downhill to the village/town. Great day hike. If the spires are clear you will see them on the later half of the hike. The 'steep 1 km climb' is steep, but I... More
