Laguna Capri, El Chalten

(4.6/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Laguna Capri into our El Chalten itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in El Chalten.

  • Ideal for beginners of trekking. Can be made into little more than 3:00 (roundtrip). The lagoon is on the same trail that leads to the Fitz Roy. Are 4 km to the lake or to the mirador Fitz Roy (near laguna). There are several points of stops to enjoy the view. The trail has markers of distance every km is very well maintained and signposted. We were in the fall and the woods are really nice.

  • Beautiful Lake of mountain, completely crystalline water and FRIAAA!... If you are from Chaltén is reached after a moderate rise of 4 km that tired legs. It is worth to go to take a matecito on your shore (without fouling anything) while enjoying the peace and the beauty of the landscape.

  • A Trekking buff to do if you don't have much time! You spend 3 hours in total. The track is very good, well signposted, wonderful landscapes, but a lot of ascent. On the way back all downhill. The Laguna Capri has a view of Fitz Roy mountain, a postcard. You can find a little place in laguna and admiring the mountain landscape, the wonderful Lake.
