Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Patagonia / Province of Santa Cruz / Los Glaciares National Park / Trails / Laguna de los Tres
Hike to Laguna de los Tres, an emerald lagoon of glacier water on a track that reveals plenty of natural sights along the way. On your way up, you'll gain excellent views of the area's granite peaks, and perhaps even some condors flying overhead (bring your binoculars). The final stretch of the increasingly steep trail will also get you sights of the lagoon itself, with glaciers hanging from the slopes that surround it.

Really great trek. Not too tough and very rewarding. Plenty of stunning spots for an energy snack and if you set off at the right time you could feel you're on the trail alone. more »
This a classic !!!!, If you are in chalten is a must do. The trekking is a 10 km round trip to reach the laguna, beware the last 1km is a very steep climb, requires good physical condition and patienc... more »
Amazing view on mount fitz roy.. great tough hike but absolutely worth it! Try to start the hike from el pilar (to avoid tracking the same trail 2 times, and the extra trail is very nice!) more »
What an amazing hike to a mountain lake. Starting at 9am, the hike was 25 km, and took 8 hours with extreme winds and the last 600m involved very difficult hiking. (TIP: bring a wind vest). The landscape along the hike was spectacular, with an amazing view of Cerro Fitz Roy and a glacier. make sure you drink some of the mountain water from the streams, probably the most pristine water you will ever drink in your life.
This is a must! One of the best sceneries that I've experienced in my life. Plan to leave early from El Chalten, around 8 or 9am, as it is about a 21 kilometer trek. Camping is available at multiple locations so if you want a shorter days hike, this would be a preferred option. Unfortunately, this is a very popular spot so tent sites will most likely be limited during the spring, summer and fall seasons. Again, you must do this hike!
A full day of moderate hiking but oh what a day it is. The views of the town you leave behind are quickly replaced first by views of the river, then the distant hills and finally the view of Fitz Roy. As you continue to climb, this view only gets better. After the final push you are rewarded with a view that is truly second to none. Plan on doing this even if you have to leave your +1 behind.
A long day hike but well worth it. The last km is indeed quite hard but the view of Fitzroy up top is worth it. I'd start early to get up there just after sunrise if possible. Took us about 5-6 hours roundtrip but we were booking it.
Absolutely beautiful unless it's a cloudy day. The walk there (I wouldn't call it a hike except for the last kilometer) is rather boring.
