Tour Itinerary

Our day starts at 7:30 am as we depart from El Calafate and head along the famous Route 40. This iconic highway goes along the Argentino Lake up to the La Leona River. Passing the “Cañadón La Leona”, we will arrive to the ancient route hotel "La Leona". It is here where you will be able to have a break for coffee and cakes.

Once the break is over, we will continue along the Lake Viedma. From here we can take in the magical views of glaciers, hidden lakes, and the glory that is Mount Fitz Roy. After several photo stops, we will arrive to the Andean village El Chaltan, also known as the “The Capital of the Trekking”. As soon as we arrive, we will briefly visit the Interpretation Centre and then the group will be divided according their chosen option at our base: The Pudu Lodge.

This tour includes the self-guided hikes option:
From The Pudu Lodge, you will start a self-guided trek to one of the miradors of the Mount Fitz Roy and Mount Torre. We will provide you of a map and a packed box to carry in your backpack. This is perfect for the independent traveler; the clearly-marked tracks can make anyone feel like an expert. One should return to base at 6:00pm to meet back up with the group

We highly recommend the DeAgostini base camp - Laguna Torre hike, one of the most classic treks of El Chaltén. It takes you up to the Adela range and the incredible Lagoon Torre where you often find a number of icebergs that has slide down from the face of the glacier Cerro Torre.
Difficulty Level: Moderate
Minimum age suggested: 13 years old

For those who prefer a shorter hike, the laguna Capri trail is a great option. Be prepared for unforgettable views of Mt. Fitz Roy above beautiful Capri lagoon only two hours from El Chaltén.
