Laguna Capri is great for a quick look on the way to Cerro Fitz Roy or as a shorter hike rather than going the whole way. It has a large camping area with toilets so good for breaking up the Cerro Fitz Roy hike.

We got to Laguna Capri walking back to Chalten from Cerro Fitzroy hike, a 10 min. detour from the main track; definitely worthwhile, great laguna panorama, surrounded by majestic mountains, a place where to take the last break before ending the long hike.

Beautiful lake about halfway on the hike to Mt. Fitzroy. Worth stopping for a few minutes to relax and take in the views.

We did the walk from Rio Blanco to Laguna Capri back to El Chalten. Not too strenuous, took about 6 hours, lake was nice and serene and a good place to have a picnic. Good view of Fitzroy mountain.

Good option if you don't want a strenuous day/ want to sleep in/ have to head off that evening. Took us 4 hours to lake Capri and back at a leisurely pace. Lovely to sit and have lunch there, with magnificent views of Cerro Fitz Roy there (on a sunny day) and also on the way back if you circle... More

It is an easy trek, the trail is well marked and, once you reached Laguna Capri, you have great views of the Fitz Roy peak. One of the reasons to come to El Chalten.

Ran up and down the Laguna Capri track. Such a good path with heaps of look outs and obviously a great picture at the lake!

Laguna Capri is in the middle of the trail to Fitz Roy. Good place to rest. The water is not as cold as on Fitz Roy lake. And you have nice sights from Fitz Roy there.

My wife and I visited throughout Chile and Argentina in November 2015. We did the hike to Laguna Capri. The weather in Patagonia is unforgiving. Bring layers and waterproof clothing. The weather changes on short notice. It was very windy the day we were there but there are a lot of areas that are sheltered from the wind. This climb... More

It's really wonderful having the view of the lake with Fitz Roy in front of you. You can really appreciate the beauty of nature.
