Hiking Los Glaciares Nacional Park In El Chalten, Argentina
While I highly recommend spending a few days in El Chaltén to explore Los Glaciares Nacional Park and Mount Fitz Roy, it is possible to see a lot in just a few hours. In the gallery below, you can see my trek, which took me about four hours total. To access the Fitz Roy trailhead, cross town from the bus station via San Martin Avenue. Walk until the road ends and you'll see a sign that says "Sendero al Fitz Roy." Enter here, veering to the left, and follow the trail for Laguna Capri. You'll be able to complete a moderately intense circuit with unbelievable views that will make you feel like you're in a real-life Bob Ross masterpiece. From Laguna Capri, walk to Poincenot for excellent views of Mount Fitz Roy. Afterwards, continue walking in a circle in the direction of Mirador, another lookout point that makes for an excellent photography stop.
