Camping in the midst of the mountains
3-day hiking program
Day 1: Arrival at El Chaltén around noon. With our mountain guide you will walk to our first camp in the midst of the mountains. While the trail slowly leads upwards approaching Mount Fitz Roy, deep down in the valley the Rio de las Vueltas flows on its way to Lago Viedma.After a two hours easy walk you arrive at Laguna Capri.
Day 2:From Laguna Capri the path continues for about an hour towards Rio Blanco: the base camp for Fitz Roy ascents. From here on, the trail starts winding up, gaining altitude and a spectacular view of the valley. After an hour ascent Mount Fitz Roy appears with a breathtaking close up view of its vertical granite walls. Lunch close to Laguna de los Tres overlooking this spectacular scenery.
Day 3:Hike to Cerro Torre. Roaming through marshy landscape and huge granite boulders, the trail will lead you down into the Cerro Torre valley. After a two and a half hour walk you reach the base camp for all Cerro Torre ascents. A little further, at Laguna Torre you have lunch facing the giant granite towers of Cerro Torre, Egger, Standhart and a countless number of ice capped summits surrounded by hanging glaciers.
