Laguna Capri, El Chalten

4.8
Hike from El Chalten to the green-blue lake of Laguna Capri, which awards visitors with picturesque views of forested hillsides and jagged snowcapped mountains. The scenic landscape and the scents of nature invite you to continue trekking, while the singing of birds and the calmness of water lure you to repose on the soft sandy shore of the lake. The water is usually too cold for swimming, but you can wade through the shoals on warmer days. Bring plenty of fresh water, snacks and sandwiches for a picnic, and a waterproof coat if you plan to camp overnight. To visit Laguna Capri on your trip to El Chalten, use our El Chalten trip app .

    without a doubt, the effort is worth. the first 2 km are pesaditos, very tiring. But it was worth it to go... road then becomes quiet and everywhere there are beautiful landscapes to observe and gather forces the loot all this effort is a nice view of the Lake. a beautiful gift to the view

    A hiking/trekking of moderate difficulty that allows you to arrive at the Capri Laguna appreciating different shades along the way. A well marked trail. The two first kilometers are the most demanding, especially the first. Then the two remaining kilometers are carried out without difficulty. The reward at the end justifies the effort. Logically if you like walking. Estimated 4 hours round trip time. Take shelter.

    The walk at the beginning is hard because it is on rise, but dsp about 30 ' normalized field. And almost at the end returns the slope but the prize is the Capri lagoon, beautiful. Crystal clear water. Safety pin!

    It is a beautiful spot featuring camping area and a Bella Vista of Mount fitz Roy, in winter must be careful with the way because it is very slippery and may be dangerous.

Where to stay in El Chalten

Thanks to the city's small size, almost all of the accommodation options in El Chalten are within easy walking distance of anything of note in town. Most "hotels" are in fact cozy alpine-style lodges catering to international visitors, and tend to be on the pricier side due to their upscale amenities. Alternatively, you can stay in one of the many campsites outside town, though weather here can be harsh. During the high season in January and February, you'll need to book at least a month or two in advance as lodging fills up fast. Keep in mind that El Chalten depends heavily on seasonal tourism for its income, and many hotels and lodges, particularly smaller, family-run affairs, close down during the winter off-season. On the flip side, many of those that remain open offer lower winter rates.
