Days 5 - 9 Perito Moreno and Fitz Roy Day Hikes in Los Glaciares

After flying from Ushuaia to El Calafate from where you will travel to El Chalten, the small trekking capital of Argentina, the distinctive Peaks of Mount Fitzroy and Cerro Torre stand proud behind El Chalten and you will spend the next few days day hiking into their midst. 
The location of El Chalten and the beauty of these mountains are not the only thing that makes El Chalten special. We love the town itself with its pioneer roots, climbing history and outdoor spirit. In the evenings you can enjoy the wine bars, craft beer haunts and various restaurants. There is not a better trekking town in the world. If you have time extend your stay to visit Lago del Desierto. 
You can’t visit Los Glaciares without visiting its immense poster glacier Perito Moreno. We love taking a boat for the day to the glacier and then hanging out at the balconies to watch chunks of ice fall off.  There are also ice hikes, kayaking trips and off-the-beaten-track hikes that we can help you choose between.
