Laguna Capri, El Chalten
(4.6/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • Personally I do not think a trek to do, unless you do lagoon of the three by the lookout trail and go back along the path of Laguna Capri. As single activity did not appear to me much. Maybe a hot day, take advantage or stopping the camping.

  • The hike for people who are not accustomed to trekking is hard, since they are all steps uphill to reach the Lake totally changes the climate, and simplicity, nature you invade. It's really rewarding. The way carpenters you can see birds in their natural habitat. Spectacular views from where you look at it.

  • It is a trekking of 4 kilometers. The first leg, staggered, resulted us difficult and tiring. We delay 1:50 in to the lagoon and the landscape is divine. The lagoon and the Fitz Roy in the background. Worth a go!
