Fitz Roy, also known as Cerro Fitz Roy, is a mountain located in Patagonia, South America. It is part of the Andes Mountain Range and is situated in the Argentine province of Santa Cruz. The mountain rises to a height of 3,405 meters (11,171 feet) and is a popular climbing destination for mountaineers. The challenging ascent and its stunning views have made Fitz Roy a symbol of the Patagonian wilderness. It is surrounded by glaciers, alpine lakes, and forests that make for a breathtaking landscape. The mountain and the nearby glaciers were named after Robert Fitz Roy, a British naval officer who was the captain of the HMS Beagle during Charles Darwin's famous voyage. Today, Fitz Roy is a protected area within the Los Glaciares National Park and is an important part of Argentina's cultural and natural heritage.
