A 22km round trip hike from El Chalten gets you to Laguna de los Tres and the foot of Mount Fitz Roy.

It is a demanding hike with a very tough 1.5km climb to the highest point… however the views are breathtaking and well worth it.

Along the trail we got to see some wood peckers, which is a first for us, and generally just enjoy the landscape.

We were really lucky with the weather, the day started cloudy which made the hike easier but cleared up to blue skies when we reached the top… amazing.
