Highly recommend. Not too difficult at all, similar to the start of Fitz Roy with a less steep incline. Really beautiful views with a place to relax at the top. We had great weather!

Hike was amazing - but it is 13 miles round trip and 2500 feet elevation. The mileage does not include walking around lake at top of Refugio Frey, which we did so our trip ended up being about 14 miles. Well worth it but manage expectations!

great trail; panoramic view, last hour is quite tough.

Did half of it

The trail is well-marked and well-kept. We accessed it by boat, but there are ways to get to the main trailhead by car.

Such an incredible hike. You get terrific panoramic views of the lakes around Bariloche and tremendous old forests. The hike can be quite strenuous, especially as you start to approach the refugio, where you are going at quite a steep angle for the last kilometer. The refugio is very bare bones, with beds a bathroom and a small kitchen. They do not charge for staying (at the time I went in 2016), but simply ask that you carry a small bag of garbage with you when you go back down the mountain. The final view around the refugio is stunning, steep sharp cliffs capped with snow completely envelope the surroundings, truly the most gorgeous hike I have ever been on.
