SUNDAY’S SPECIAL SPOT – FITZROY TREK, PATAGONIA

I am not a die-hard hiker. Heck I rarely hike at all but am willing to do a nice trail that is a couple hours. I am much more a city girl. But there are many souls who love all that a challenging trek brings them – a stunning challenge in a dramatic natural playground. A definite area of beauty is Patagonia. A glacier filled area that spans the southern tips of both Chile and Argentina, Patagonia has the Patagonian Andes mountains, grasslands, deserts and glaciers. It is here that there are numerous treks that draw the adventuring souls. One of them is the Fitzroy Trek in Argentina. The trek is named so as there are majestic views of Monte Fitz Roy that rises upwards of 1,828.8 m/6,000 ft from the glacier’s base. Located in the Los Glaciares National Park, 2 – 5 day treks are available around the base of Fitz Roy, as well as daily hikes and combining excursions with the Torres de Paine W trek in Chile. The options for all the hiking enthusiasts are varied and amazing, no doubt.
