A great introductory trek in Patagonia: trekking to the granite peaks of the Fitz Roy (3,375m) and Cerro Torre (3,128m), ending with an ice trek over the amazing Perito Moreno Glacier. Along trails through dense forests and among several lagoons and creeks, you will see spectacular spots with stunning views of the glaciers: Piedras Blancas, De los Tres, Blanco and Torre, all descending from this magnificent massif. Being two of the most difficult peaks to climb, these granite needles not only provide a magnificent view for the trekkers, but also a big challenge for the mountaineers. Finally you will board a boat to experience an ice-trek with crampons on the Moreno Glacier.
