Such a beautiful clear lake. If you come in the summer you can swim here. One hour walk from El Chalten

A beautiful turquoise lake that was tranquil and quiet when we hiked by. Don't miss the turn off if you're hiking Laguna de los Tres! It doesn't add much if any mileage, as there's a loop back to the big trail.

If you are short on time or don’t have the stamina for the full de los tres path, this is a good option also well worth doing as a side trip on the full walk. The lake is beautiful, particularly as the trees turn red...More

I stayed at Laguna Capri waiting for the sunrise. The view of the sunrise on the Fitz Roy mountain and the reflection in the Laguna is absolutely priceless

This is a lovely and quiet place. It is a small lake of crystal waters located on the way to the Fitz Roy mountain, trekking from the town. You can access it through a 45 minutes / 1 hour trek from the starting point, with...More

When we started up this trail, it was sunny and warm. By the time we arrived at the lake, it was cold and rainy. We sat at the lake in rain suits and watched the wind blow over the lake. So be prepared for any...More

This is around a 7 km hike round trip. The first half going up is the most steep and strenuous. The paths are generally quite well kept. There is very little loose rock but there are lots of tree roots to navigate around. Hiking poles...More
