This tour was exceptional. It said this was a self-guided tour but there was an english speaking guide who was very friendly and knowledgeable. The last mile and half of the trek was very tedious and difficult but it was worth the climb. The view at the summit was breathtaking.

It is an amazing day, the view and the 10 kilometers to the there and back are beautiful. At the same time, it is almost impossible to make the full 20 kilometers in 8 hours and really enjoy the tour. 9-10 hours are the right time. Special tanks to the driver.

If you are looking to do Mount Fitz Roy on your own from El Calafate then this is for you. It is essentially a private transfer (which is all we needed). We didn’t think the bus times from El Calafate allowed us to do the hike in a single day but this way we could. Driver was very friendly and helpful.
