Mount Fitzroy is the peak of hiking in Arentina. Located in Los Glaciares National Park, near Chalten, 3 hours north of El Calafate, it is a trek just to reach, but extremely worthwhile.
You can do a one day hike (Laguna de los Tres is our favourite) or multi day treks to really take in the views and push your endurance.
This 2 day trek gives you a great experience, or we could also look at the 7 day full circuit if you have more time and energy.
