Fitz Roy Hiking

One of the wonders of the Patagonia Ice Field, waiting to be discovered

Mount Fitz Roy (3405 m) is located in El Chaltén, Santa Cruz, Argentina. It is no accident that this Patagonian village is considered the “national trekking capital”. The trails that take us to the summit of Mount Fitz Roy, as well as the nearby routes, are surrounded by calm crystalline lakes and high peaks that make the landscape even more beautiful. Take a look at these hiking trips in Fitz Roy and hire a certified local guide for you next Patagonian adventure!

Base Camps Trek in El Chaltén

I did the 6 Day Basecamp Trek through Patagonia and had a blast. The trip was amazing, with amazing views and the hiking top notch. I would totally go back and do another one of the hikes offered by Mountaineering Patagonia.

Base Camps Trek in El Chaltén

Had a really amazing time on this trek. Most credit to our very knowledgeable guide Juan, his assistant Matthias who was also a good cook and porters Waco and Patto. The trip was very well organized, and we learned a lot from being hands on as far as pitching and taking down our own tents. The views were amazing and everyday had something different to offer. Would definitely recommend Mountaineering Patagonia to anyone who wants see the beauty of Patagonia. Would love to do the Southern Ice field someday with the same company

Base Camps Trek in El Chaltén

I just returned from an incredibly memorable and exciting trip from Patagonia, the highlight being the 6 day Base Camps trek with Mountaineering Patagonia. The trip was well organized, the food was amazing (I think we all gained weight somehow despite the long days of hiking) and the guides were wonderful-particularly our lead guide Juan. If you're looking for an adventurous outdoor experience with a team that truly knows and loves the area I highly recommend them. The experience could not have been better. Thank you Merlin, Juan & the rest of Mountaineering Patagonia for an incredible time!
