TdP or Fitz Roy?

Jump to last reply

I am planning an adventure for the end of 2014 and am trying to choose between Torres del Paine and Fitz Roy. I would looove to do both but am a student and have a limited supply of cash. I have done some research and it seems that Chile is more expensive than Argentina, but how do the sites compare? I would like to do a hike where I can camp in a tent along the way, and I am not limited for time.

I am also interested in hearing about other hikes in S.America that may be cheaper and just as beautiful. I should mention this is my first time hiking/carrying my life on my back but am adventurous and would rather avoid hotels.

I am a young adult female initially going alone but hoping to meet people along the way.

Your advice is appreciated! Thanks in advance.
