It was a nice walk. There are free public bathrooms which are fairly clean. There were many birds (I imagine many more during the warmer months).

Must Do .. Walking round and gaining a view of the Moreno Glacier is a great experience and the trail is very well laid out .. However, if you make the trip all the way down, highly recommend to complete the trek onto the glacier .. an amazing life experience.

Amazing. We did that trail with my kids (12 and 4 years old). Was hard but wonderful experience.

Es una caminata hermosa, sólo el último kilómetro es desafiante. Recomiendo comenzar desde la hostería El Pilar, es más bonita y fácil.

It’s a beautiful hike with amazing views. Only the last km is challenging. I recommend you start from El Pilar, it’s easier and prettier

Very good view on Fitz Roy. Too much crowded but it’s the price to pay! :)

Amazing trail with lots of opportunities to stop and enjoy the beautiful views. Weather in early may was quite decent (coldest being 2-5 c)
The last 1.5k was challenging and dangerous, the steep incline was filled with ice and snow. Be careful where you step!

Total time from El Chaltén was of 8hrs

I completed this hike first week of May. The weather was a little chilly at the start but as you continue it gets warmer. Amazing views all the way through. The start of the trek has a slight incline for 1km till you get to your first view point. As everyone else has said , the last 1.5 kms were very hard. We had lots of icy conditions which made the rocks slippery, even harder on the way down trying not to slip. (Do not attempt if you are scared of heights!)
Definitely worth the trip to the top though!! The hike back was very fast, only took 3 hours from the top but our feet were hurting ! Must see trek!

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.

Worth the effort

Amazing views! The last 1km is a 40% grade made more difficult by the large number of other people hiking and the constant strong wind.

Very enjoyable trail. Sweeping views of water and mountains. Plus “mittens” ,piles of shells/bones/ashes from the Yamana natives in almost every cove. Trail very well marked. Occasionally dip into heavy woods, also beautiful.

Lugar mágico!

I went during February when it was the summertime in Patagonia. There were few parking spots so one has to show early but the trail and view of the glacier is a step away from the parking lot. The trail is on metal walkways and you can't get to close because there is ice constantly falling. It was incredible to see so much ice that extends so far back. The glacier's wind was absolutely cold, even during the summer. The glacier lake that it feeds is a stunning site to just sit down and witness all day. It is a life-changing experience to see Perito Moreno.

Very pretty walk, mostly along the Beagle Channel. Easy to find as the trail is clearly marked.

Quite a challenge but worth the trip to the top! There is actually a way to do the hike so you don’t have to come back the same way. You can take a shuttle 20-30 min from El Chaltén, hike along the Rio Blanco to Laguna de Los Tres, and then back down to El Chaltén. I recommend it as you’ll get to hike through the forest and see even more Patagonia terrain.

A great trail with amazing views. The climb up to the lake is steep and long, but overall the hike is not too bad. Be prepared for all types of weather. Here is my full trip report with pictures and maps! https://backpackersreview.wordpress.com/trip-reports/los-glaciares-national-park/

The last 1.5 miles is intense with a 40% grade. Even harder on the way down. The trail is clean, well maintained, and well marked the entire way. Beautiful vistas abound.

We actually completed this trek starting from El Pilar Hosteria just outside the park...slightly shorter route though lots of groups would begin at El Pilar then conclude in El Chalten. Regardless, it is an unbelievable experience. Absolutely unreal views of Ftiz Roy throughout the trek. The last mile is incredibly difficult...highly recommend one or two hiking poles to help on the way down. It is worth every step.

Camped at Poincenat and got up at 4am to hike the 1 hour summit trail at sunrise and it was amazing. It’s a tough hike even without a pack but the views are inspiring all the way up.

Absolutely stunning! Combined with the most incredible fall foliage (end of March), this was the best day hike I've ever done. If you're near El Calafate, take the 3 hour trip north. You won't regret it.

Absolutely stunning. For beginners (me) and acrophobic hikers (me), and depending on weather, this is not a completely moderate hike. It's much more difficult, slippery and dangerous in snow, rain, and high winds, which are the conditions we completed it in. The very last stretch during the final 2 kilometer climb is at a 45° angle, and was covered in maybe 1/2 a foot of fresh snow, then it closes with a steep hill of slippery rocks before finally seeing the lagoon. It is such a relief to see the lagoon. Ha. One of the most beautiful sights I'd ever seen.

Awesome hike. Beautiful the entire way. A mile almost straight up to the lakes but worth all the effort

birding

Most hardcore birdwatchers will already know that this is the best place in BA for birdwatching but if you are just casually into birds and looking for a nice nature area in the city this is an awesome place to see tons of birds (especially waterfowl and large waders) up close. The park is also populated enough and in a safe enough part of town that you can feel pretty secure waking around with optics in plain sight. Lots of runners, cyclists, casual strollers and young, hip Argentinians lounging around drinking mate.

Amazing hike. Definitely worth the 4 am wake up to get up in time for sunrise.

Best hike ever

The best hike we have experienced. You will work hard in the last mile but the payoff is huge. Don't forget sunscreen!
