Laguna de los Tres, Los Glaciares National Park

(5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The hike to Laguna de los Tres is beautiful. This can be done as an out and back hike from El Chalten, but we got a bus ride to El Pilar and walked back to El Chalten. The side hike to the viewpoint f...  more »
  • It's amazing!!! X luck was several days in the Chaltén and could accommodate the different trekking according to it that we allowed the climate; of that form could see to the Fitz Roy and the lagoon in way full. Tip: don't go if the clouds are low, it rains or strong winds. Take into account that the final kilometre is really complex and tiring (I am 52 years old and usually do exercise). Wear trekking shoes and a walking stick. Take heart that it's worth the effort!

  • There is that climb 10 km by the path of Fitz Roy. The first two km and the last km are those more difficult but not impossible. The rest of the way is plain.

  • Amazing hike. You really need to deserve the view, the last hour and 15 minutes are all steep uphill, you better be a bit in shape. Don't try it with sneakers, especially not if there is snow and ice left, until October. A stick always helps, even a wooden one young can pick up on the way. Get there and enjoy the view on Fitz Roy and the lower valley with Laguna Capri, Madre y Hija. ¡Espléndido!
  • Incredible lagoon where you can see the fitz roy! Awesome place to be!!
  • One of the best hikes I ever did. Great view! The last kilometer is difficult.
  • Really beautiful place. ..
