Great walk with amazing views

I really enjoyed this trip / walk. Although there was a coach full of people going from El Calafate, I ended up being the only one to do this walk with the guide Frederico, who was great. The walk was about 10 miles, approx 300m of gentle ascent in the first half (with one short slightly steeper bit) to get to the campsite for lunch, then fairly flat until the descent into El Chalten. The pace was quite fast - we took 5 hours overall including a leisurely stop for lunch and plenty of stops to see the views of mountains, glaciers and lakes which were amazing. Anyone with a reasonable level of fitness or who goes hiking could enjoy this walk. The travel from El Calafate takes 2-3 hours - it was enjoyable on the way with stops to see the views / wildlife and information from the guide (in English and Spanish), but was quite tiring on the way back. Overall it was a great day though.

An unbelievable experience!

I was excited about this trip from the moment that I booked it, but it far exceeded my expectations. The pickup from the hotel was punctual, and the bus driver was very friendly. The drive to El Chalten was really incredible. Driving around Lago Argentino and Lago Viedma was really scenic, but nothing can prepare you for the jaw-dropping beauty on the way to Mount Fitz Roy. Our guide, Micaela, was amazing. She was extremely friendly and helpful right from the start. Her knowledge of the area was phenomenal and she was super informative during the entire hike. The wildflowers were blooming at the time that I went, and she took the time to point them out and tell us the name of the flowers as we went. I really enjoy photography and Micaela was able to show me some fantastic spots for photos. While the walk is fairly fast-paced in sections, Micaela still made sure that we stopped in some really scenic spots to take photos. The lunch in the base camp was a great experience also. This break gives time to chat with the other hikers and Micaela gave us more information about the area, including the naming of Mount Fitz Roy and the formation of the glaciers. Overall, I found that this tour to be excellent value for money considering the high standard of transport, the included lunch, but most of all, having a guide as good as Micaela to show you around. I will be recommending this to anyone who plans to visit El Calafate or El Chalten.

Nice walk with lunch in a tent, but can be done by yourself

The agency collects several passengers that has purchased different tour at el chalten, so it is not a very personalized experience. I felt that we have pretty much overpaid because it is not cheap and the walk can be done by your self amd for free. Would not recommend this agency.

We are concerned that other passengers who wish to do exactly this tour take your comments as valid and believe they can do it on their own. First, the booked tour was on regular service, which means that it is shared with other travelers. Secondly, all activity can be done on your own, the ways of traveling are very numerous (car rental, walking, regular bus, hiring an excursion). You chose a guided excursion with everything that means: logistics, tourist content, mountain guide, lunch in a exclusive base camp and an optimization of the times that allows you to be back at your hotel in Calafate for dinner.

Stunning views with an experienced guide (Pablo), flawless transports, very good lunch break despite being in the middle of the park. Hike is quite long but beautiful. A must do in El Chalten/Calafate.
