Doing it in winter, with crampons, is amazing and entering the ice caves is the ultimate prize.

The 8-hour muddy trail walk, with ice and frost, but it is worth the effort to appreciate and enjoy a unique landscape, and as a prize the frozen lagoon and glacier at the end of the steepest slope at the highest part. We went with a Ushuaia Extreme guide. VERY recommended for lovers of the natural. A very beautiful landscape, both the road and the destination, do not miss it!
Great hike up to the Ice-and-Stone Giant! It starts at a private farm (you have to leave your vehicle outside) and goes through various swampy areas which are formed by the run-off water from the glacier; then it goes through a *lot* of woods -- in my opinion, the worst part of the hike: lots of mud, slippery terrain and lots of chances of missing the trail (which is not obvious nor well-marked in many spots) and getting lost. But it all changes when you get above the snow line (which is surprisingly low due to the cold coming from the glacier) and the trees disappear: you will then be treated to astounding views of a lake right in front of the glacier, of the glacier itself, and to an ice cave embedded in its base (don't go too far inside, remember it's melting ice and cave-ins are a certainty -- and also don't linger too much outside its mouth, beware of falling rocks from above). Also, beautiful rocky formations all above. Absolutely recommended, but take care to bring appropriate clothes (it gets *cold* near the glacier), walking sticks, and budget at least 9 hours, 4 up plus 4 down (they say it can be made in 3+3 hours, but I would but risk moving that fast in that terrain) plus 1 hour to wander around up there.
Moderate to difficult hiking, steep climp in the end. No special equipment required, just a good pair of boots
