Day 2

Good morning & goodbye for now, El Calafate! Before El Chaltén, you're off to Perito Moreno Glacier for an incredible view of the park. Listen to the pops, crackles and bangs as the unpredictable ice dramatically crashes into the water. After, a bit of glacier entertainment you're off to El Chaltén!

Take advantage of the late sunset and treat yourself to a self-guided hike upon arrival. We recommend either Cerro Torre or Mirador de los Cóndores y Águilas. The hikes offer spectacular panoramic views of the town paired with breathtaking mountains.

Day 3

Time for a serious trek! Wake up and enjoy a hearty breakfast before meeting your trekking guide for a full day of hiking in El Chaltén. Today's hiking menu consists of Laguna de los Tres, the highlight of El Chaltén. You’ll cross the Del Salto Stream and its icy blue water surrounded by orange rocks that serve as a beautiful foreground of Mount Fitz Roy.

The trail finishes at the ridge of the rocky De los Tres Glacier - an enormous formation in the shape of an arch that holds the beautiful blue water with the best view of the lagoon and De los Tres glacier. This is the closest and most extraordinary view of the granite wall of Mount Fitz Roy and the surrounding peaks.

Fuel up on breakfast before meeting your trekking guide to hike to the famous towers. Arriving from the dense forests along the Rio Ascencio, you’ll ascend toward the base of Torres del Paine. Admire the dramatic views of glaciated mountains as you climb. Get a good grip, the trail becomes rocky as it winds around granite boulders toward a glacial tarn. At the top enjoy a much deserved view of Torres del Paine!
