Itinerary

Start your trip by meeting your guide at our office in El Chalten. Following up, we head off on the Laguna Torre footpath and after a small climb we enter a small ñire forest. From here, the path starts to gain height and straighten up alongside the Fitz Roy River until it arrives at a viewpoint of the river canyon and the Margarita waterfall. After about an hour of walking we arrive at the Mount Torre viewpoint, where we have magnificent views of Mount Torre, the Adela range and glaciers and have a short break.
We then walk for 2 hours until we arrive at Laguna Torre. In this section there is always the possibility of spotting a wide range of birds, including the Magellanic woodpecker.
At Laguna Torre it is usual to see huge icebergs, ice which has fallen off the Torre glacier face.
You will also be able to visit the Agostini campground that used to be a base camp for climbers from all over the world. It is also the source of the River Fitz Roy.
Once there, you will have enough time to rest and lunch at the lagoon. Then, we start the trek back to El Chaltén.
