All reviews laguna de los tres fitz roy el pilar steep climb worth every step great hike laguna capri day hike sunny day worth the effort amazing views lucky with the weather long hike take your time great weather chilli easy hike
I won't reiterate what the other reviews already say, it's all true about how beautiful it is and this is a must do for sure. Just be warned the last 1km is brutal uphill and downhill. If your really fit no issues, if your just...More
Wish we had more time to spend here. The trails range in difficulty for all experience levels. Make sure you bring water and proper hiking/trekking shoes. Saw a couple of trekkers wearing regular gym shoes and they slid, slipped and had to avoid some trails...More
Mount Fitzroy appears suddenly as you drive towards it, it's impressive beauty dazzles the mind. Standing fall amongst its group this mountain is waiting to be conquered. Offering excellent photo opportunities this is definitely one for the itinerary.
I did a day trip from El Calafate, leaving around 7am and every intention of climbing up to Laguna Capri. I was so lucky the day before with amazing weather in Torres del Paine and fortunate the day I visited that weather was clear but...More
You have to trekk around 24km to reach the lake and the view of the mountain. Fitz Roy is a massive stone mountain, paradise for climbers. The path to to Fitz Roy is very beautiful. The last 4 km is a steep climb to reach...More
This is probably best hike I’ve ever done, it’s tough but it’s so beautiful all the way. I started early in the morning to see the sunrise at Laguna Capri and then reached the viewpoint at Laguna de los tres at around 9.30. I would...More
It’s by far the best place to go if you want to do trekking in mountains. This mountain is simply amazing.
There are several treks, with different difficulties. Tho, the best one is the laguna de los tres, a 20km hike.
You can camp for...More
Just skip the side trip at roughly the middle, and DONT go to Laguna Los Tres which is where all the height and pain is.. I did it in Feb 2018 carrying a lot of camera gear, and I am nearly 60 years old. I...More

Hello! Yes, you do not need a guide unless you want some company to do the journey with. We also stayed in El Chalten but we took a taxi to El Pilar to begin the hike there. On the way back we took the trail back to El Chalten, so it was more of a loop than an out-and-back. If you want my opinion, I would hike the trail the opposite of the way we did it so you can see Fitz Roy the whole walk there. It is a gorgeous view. Starting in El Pilar, you get a view of the back of the glacier and Piedras Blancas and walk all along the river to get to Poincenot. From there, the trail is the same as if you had come from El Chalten or El Pilar. The only thing is you will have to arrange a taxi to come meet you at a pre-designated time to drive you back from El Pilar. Your hotel should be able to help arrange that. Just make SURE to give yourself enough time to enjoy Fitz Roy. You will absolutely love it. Enjoy!!!

You have plenty of options transport wise. There are local coaches and buses from El Calafate to El Chalten, but do book your tickets in advance for outward and return journeys. Providing your a proficient walker, have the right equipment/clothing and navigation skills you be able to walk the classic routes. Be warned about the Patagonian wind/weather though, as it takes no prisoners ! Good luck and enjoy the area.
