MADRE E HIJA (MOTHER AND DAUGHTER) are two apartments of 44 m2 each, overlooking the Cerro Chaltén (Fitz Roy Mt.), from the room and the kitchen (the best views are the sunrises). One of them has a small individual patio which is possible to share with the other apartment if you want. Our "mountain refuge", as we like to call it, is located between two avenues and it is very easy to find. We offer you a warm, cozy, new accommodation, with everything you need to enjoy your stay. At 100 meters from the apartment there is a staircase that connect to the trailhead to Mirador del Torre, Laguna Torre, Lagunas Madre e Hija, Laguna de los Tres, Mirador Piedras Blancas, Glaciar Piedras Blancas, etc.

For many years we have dreamed about this project, and we have made it real in November 2018. MADRE E HIJA (mountain refuge), is a place where contemplating, relaxing and resting are a Must.
We live behind MADRE E HIJA, you can easily find us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
