Full description
Start your moderate 11 mile-hike to Laguna Torre at a designated meeting point in downtown. On the way, your guide will tell you about the impressive landscapes you’ll see while passing the Fitz Roy River, cross wide, glacially-formed valleys, and fairy-tale woods. You will be amazed by the views when you reach Mount Torre viewpoint, where you’ll get to know the Adela mountain range & its glaciers. Hit the trail again and pass by De Agostini campsite and cross old glacial moraines until Laguna Torre appears right before your eyes. Take your time to admire the breathtaking Cerro Hill crowning the lagoon, and the floating glaciers bobbing in the blue waters. Be prepared, this is a high-probability wildlife-spotting section. Try to catch a Magellanic woodpecker working diligently in a tree or a humble huemul (the Patagonian deer) strolling along the shore. After a restorative moment to eat lunch (not included) with this peaceful backdrop, start your hike back to El Chaltén.

Lilen, our guide, was very very nice! You could do this trail on your own, though! :)
