Trek to Laguna Torre

  • Laguna Torre trek
  • Duration: Full day
  • Difficulty level: Moderate

One of the classic and can’t be missed walks of El Chaltén, to Laguna Torre where we find an impressive view of the Torre massif, the Adela range, Mount Solo and their respective glaciers. The footpath will take us through a wide range of landscapes, ranging from wide glacially formed valleys to dense forests. We stop at great panoramic spots and visit famous base camps that are used by famous climbers.

 

From El Chaltén we head off on the Laguna Torre footpath and after a small climb we enter a small ñire forest. From here, the path starts to gain height and straighten up alongside the Fitz Roy River until it arrives at a viewpoint of the river canyon and the Margarita waterfall. The panorama presents the valley of the Fitz Roy River and its serpentine course with the backdrop of the unique Mount Solo, the Adela range and the impressive Mount Torre. After about an hour of walking we arrive at the Mount Torre viewpoint. Here we will make the most of the magnificent views of Mount Torre, the Adela range and glaciers and have a short break. We then walk for 2 hours through grand lenga forests, crossing old glacial moraines and wet plains formed by the previous courses of the river until we arrive at Laguna Torre. In this section there is always the possibility of spotting a wide range of birds, including the Magellanic woodpecker. At Laguna Torre it is usual to see huge icebergs, ice which has fallen off the Torre glacier face. This walk in springtime is lovely, as we are able to see a large variety of wild flowers endemic to Patagonia. After a rest and lunch at the lagoon, we start the trek back to El Chaltén
