First of all I must say if you want to do this try to get some exercise before. In order to get the lake you have to hike approx 16 miles in a very pronunciated steep. It is really important to carry comfortable shoes, water...More

If you are short on time or don’t have the stamina for the full de los tres path, this is a good option also well worth doing as a side trip on the full walk. The lake is beautiful, particularly as the trees turn red...More

I stayed at Laguna Capri waiting for the sunrise. The view of the sunrise on the Fitz Roy mountain and the reflection in the Laguna is absolutely priceless

This is a lovely and quiet place. It is a small lake of crystal waters located on the way to the Fitz Roy mountain, trekking from the town. You can access it through a 45 minutes / 1 hour trek from the starting point, with...More

When we started up this trail, it was sunny and warm. By the time we arrived at the lake, it was cold and rainy. We sat at the lake in rain suits and watched the wind blow over the lake. So be prepared for any...More

This is around a 7 km hike round trip. The first half going up is the most steep and strenuous. The paths are generally quite well kept. There is very little loose rock but there are lots of tree roots to navigate around. Hiking poles...More

Rain or shine (we had shine with clouds) I think it is absolutely worth the while to hike at least to Laguna Capri, where, if you can't get a clear view of Fitz Roy (Fils du Roi) you'll be able to "guess" its towering presence...More

We stopped by here on our way back from the Laguna de los Tres hike, on a beautiful warm sunny day. Our feet were aching from the hike, so we took off our boots and waded in the clear cold water. Heaven! You can also...More

Let me start by saying that we got lucky with the weather -clear skies and sunny but not too hot. First km is tough then the path easies up. The Fitzroy views from the lagoon beach are mind blowing. We sat 30 min by the...More

You reach this pleasant lake (with a camp site) after about 4km of the trek up towards Fitz Roy. A good stopping point for the views but there are better photo opportunities to come.
