From the mirador, we can see the Fitz Roy on the right and the Cerro Torre on the left with the Laguna Torre at the bottom.
This hike is the most famous in El Chalten if you want to see the Fitz Roy summit from a very nice view point: its foot!
It was not the first time I was walking on a glacier but I really couldn’t remember the other one as I was a little girl “lost in the French Alps” 🙂
This is one of my first attempts at long exposure photos. I’ll have to get better at it!
This one was not really a hike, let’s say it was more of a walk. It only takes 1 hour to go to the Mirador Cuernos on a very easy path. The real challenge of this one is the wind as it can reach gusts of 90km/h which are very hard to resist!
In December, at the end of the W circuit, we had done a part of this hike, but we stopped at Refugio Chileno…
It was the fifth and last day of our expedition in the Torres del Paine! From the Torres Central campsite, the last hike leads to the Base de Las Torres. This is the most famous of the park
In the same way that day 3 ended, day 4 started in incredibly calm and sunny Patagonia… Had we been transported to another country or another dimension?!
This day began with a very beautiful 7 km walk to the Italiano campsite where we had planned to stop because it is the starting point of a detour to the Valle del Francès.
This was our first actual walking day. We will have 4. The goal was to hike the 11 km to join the second shelter we had booked: the Refugio Paine Grande.
The Torres del Paine was the HIGHLIGHT of our visit of the Chilean Patagonia! We were looking forward to it and we were absolutely not disappointed.
This popular hike in the mountains of El Bolson is incredibly beautiful! Dragged by the friendly and very energetic couple from Quebec, we jumped into a taxi in the morning to get to the starting point of this fantastic hike to the summit of Cerro Piltriquitrón!
Back on the trails! This weekend we decided to hike a nice path going to the Refugio de la Laguna Negra at 1650m where we spent a night, our heads in the mountains!
This trek was fantastic! 4 days of hiking + 1 day for the Machu Picchu guided tour. It was really a human, physical and cultural adventure! Booked nearly 1 year ago with the WAYKI TREK agency, it was the final highlight of our visit in Peru.
We had the PERFECT plan!
The hike to Laguna Churup was supposed to be a very nice acclimation walk…
In order to prepare longer treks at high altitude, it was good to start with a short one near the dynamic city of Huaraz.
Fabulous souvenir of the Roys Peak hike.
