FULL DAY TOUR: TREKKING TO THE "CERRO TORRE"
On this day, we will go on another of the region’s unmissable hikes, exploring the Torre lagoon and contemplating the impressive views of the Torre massif, Cordón Adela, Solo hill and the various glaciers there.
The path leaves from the town itself, with a mild incline for the first few minutes, following the route of the Fitz Roy River. After 20 minutes, you will be able to see the Fitz Roy canyon and its gorgeous waterfalls. The views from here include the unique Solo hill, the Cordón Adela and the imposing Torre hill.
After the first hour hiking, you will arrive at the Torre hill viewpoint where you will rest for a short while and enjoy the gorgeous views of the massif and its glaciers. From there, we will continue walking for 1 hour through a beautiful valley until you reach the Agostini Base Camp. For a few more minutes we will carry on walking until you reach the Torre lagoon, seeing impressive beech forests, ancient glaciers, and a wide variety of birds, including, with a little luck, the Magellanic woodpecker!
Once at the Torre lagoon, we will enjoy the incredible sights of the ice floes caused by the frontal part of the glacier calving. After a rest, time to explore, and lunch, we will begin our return to Chalten.
Note: If passengers want to, the visit can be extended from the Torre lagoon to the Maestri viewpoint. This is 2 kilometers further away, around 45 minutes, along the lagoon to the edge of the forest, which forms a natural balcony over the Torre lagoon and glacier.
