“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I feel in love with this mountain! I only saw it from afar (from overlooks) but it's impressive and enhances the already beautiful landscape.

“Trekking to Fitz Roy”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

A bunch of diferent micro climates and landscape views in 7:30hs of trekking. The smal but deep blue lake at Fitz Roy base worth the effort!
A good tip is to get a van, you can book it one day in advance in any hostel or hotel, and start the trekking from "Hosteria El Pilar", doing this way you won't need to do a return way, just go straight to Fitz Roy then to El Chalten via "Laguna Capri".

“Undoubtedly "the king"”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This is the top attraction of this region. Without reducing the interest and beauty of many other places in this region, the Fitz Roy beats them all.
You have to be lucky, as the view is not always great, but that is expected.

But, if you're lucky to get some clear days, be sure to at least on one of them wake up early and see the mountain turn red at sunrise. Definitely worth the effort.

“The view depends on your luck..”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

The best view we got from the Fitzroy wasn´t from the View Point. It was from Lago del Desierto with an awesome perspective.

The view point, close from Camping Poincenot, can be cloudy, depending of the day. It is also a pretty crowded spot.

“Wonderful hike but tough at the top!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

A brilliant trail. Would recommend you take the morning transit (you need to book on the minibus) at 8am to the top of the estancia so you don't have to re-trace your trail from el chalten there and back. You can just do one loop. The final climb takes about an hour and is TOUGH! You need to be fairly fit, or patient, as it's like climbing the steps of a 50 floor tower block ;-) ... but worth it!!!
