The Fitzroy Trek – Patagonia, Argentina
If you are exploring Patagonia and you already have plans to hike the Torres del Pain then it is certainly worthwhile to add the Fitzroy Trek to your Argentina itinerary while you are in the area. The route leads you from El Chalt?n to Laguna El?ctrica. Though the Torres del Paine is the most popular route in the region, the Fitzroy trek is certainly a worthy contender for being the most beautiful.
With jagged peaks and unique rock formations, it is easy to fall in love with the scenery here. Fortunately the trail is also a relatively straightforward route. You do not ascend to altitudes which are too high or dizzying, the trails are clearly marked and the terrain is flat and constant. As such, the Fitzroy Trek is suitable even for less experienced hikers and is a nice alternative if you are intimidated by the Torres del Paine.
