We will take the Laguna (lagoon) Torre trail from El Chaltén in the morning. After one hour hiking we will reach the first viewpoint to Cerro Torre and the Fitz Roy river valley. From here we´ll head down to the main valley of Fitz Roy river and walk another two hours to reach Laguna Torre, one of the most spectacular views of the mythical Cerro Torre.
Also, first-row views to Cerro Solo, Techado Negro, Loma de las Pizarras and the nascent of the Fitz Roy river are well worth the walk. After a lunch break, we´ll return to El Chaltén by the same trail, arriving in town late in the afternoon.
The activity will take about 7 hs
