The tour starts when the trekking guide, a professional authorized to guide at El Chalten, picks you up from your hotel. You will start walking from that spot.
From El Chaltén, there are two head-trails to Laguna Torre, both paths join together after 5 minutes walk. The trail enters the Fitz Roy river valley and continues following the river upstream to its source. After 15 minutes walking you will access the first viewpoint located at the gorge of the Fitz Roy river -called Cascada Margarita- which offers a panoramic view of the Cerro Solo, Adela range, Cerro Torre and the Fitz Roy mount. Across the river lies the Margarita waterfall.
Halfway you will reach Cerro Torre viewpoint with incomparable views of the Adela range, Cerro Torre and other granite needles.
Finally the path crosses the DeAgostini base camp. Fifteen minutes along the way from the camp you will reach Laguna Torre. At the shore of this lagoon, it is often possible to find a number of icebergs from the Grande glacier.
The one-way trekking lasts 4 hours approx.
After a 9-hours trekking, you will return to El Chalten by the same path.
