For three hours we wander through wonderful andean forest and mountain landscapes until we reach the climber's base camp Rio Blanco, with Cerro Fitz Roy and neighbouring granite peaks always in sight.

Day 10:
Hiking to Laguna Torre, at the foot of legendary Cerro Torre in South Patagonia, one of the most demanding climbing - mountaineering targets worldwide. Its 1400m high steep walls of flat granite are proof of this, the climate being the main factor, which is why climbers must often wait for months before the final assault can be made to the granite peaks. The suggested hike extends only to Laguna Torre which lies directly at the foot of the mountain. From here one has breathtaking views of a series of windswept granite needles and huge glaciers. Easy 5-6 hour hike. This stretch may also be interrupted after one and a half hours at a first viewing spot.
Overnight stay same as previous day.

Fauna: guanacos (of the llama family), foxes, ñandúes (small ostrich), black-necked swans, armadillos, skunks and throughout the mountains various bird types, e.g. condors and eagles.
Overnight stay at "Las Torres" or "Grey" inns.

This stretch may also be interrupted beforehand.
