Laguna Capri, El Chalten

(4.6/5 based on 950+ 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.

  • As for follow training for walks older, after them viewpoints of the condors and the of the Eagles, this is a good option. Almost two hours of ida, and others back. As in all El Chalten, reward is a majestic view of this beautiful lagoon, the Capri, silence, wind, birds... a delight. Do not miss it!

  • We got 4 km, regardless of physical condition, we are a couple of sedentary Uruguayans (sorry to say) in the surroundings of the 50 years (also sorry to say), but went up! and discover the paradise. Drank the water fresh and sweet from the lagoon. And never, never, never forget that place.

  • A path with some pending if is from El Chaltén, simple if done from Laguna de los Tres. It is a relatively short trail, which ends in this tranquil lagoon. Great place to relax and follow stepped, or to camp and prepare for the next day.
