Laguna De los Tres

The most emblematic, spectacular and unforgettable trek of the region. This is the trek to do if you only have one day in El Chaltén.  A trek that takes you past some impressive scenery and through forests until you arrive at the mystical Mount Fitz Roy; admiring lagoons of different shades of blue, imposing glaciers and campgrounds visited by famous international climbers.

Day 1

This trek starts with a transfer to the trail head at El Pilar, located 17km to the north of the town.

We start walking in a dense forest of lengas, that protect us from the winds coming off the Continental Ice Field. Right from the start we are able to see lots of different glaciers; Marconi, Eléctrico, Cagliero and in the distance, towards Lago del Desierto, the Vespignani glacier.

The path is quite flat and the climbs are gentle. We arrive at our first viewpoint, Piedras Blancas glacier and a bit later we leave the forest and end up in a clearing where we can admire in all their splendour the peaks of “S”, Saint Exupéry, Poincenot, Fitz Roy, Mermoz and Guillaumet.

We then climb 400m in about an hour until we arrive at Laguna de los Tres. During this steep kilometer up to Laguna de los Tres, the path will be rocky and with steps, and on way up all the time, on arriving at the highest point on the path, we are rewarded by the majestic views of Fitz Roy, the glacier de los Tres and its lagoon. The grandeur of this location makes you feel very insignificant.

From here we circle Laguna de los Tres and head towards the viewpoint of the Laguna Sucia and its glacier.

After a rest and a bite for lunch, we will start the descent and walk back to El Chaltén.

En route we go past some varying landscape, crystal clear streams and we pass by Laguna Capri – a favourite spot for photographers. After visiting the lagoon we drop down into the valley where El Chaltén is located.

Having had such an exciting day, why not relax in the town having a beer made in the town’s microbrewery or a hot chocolate with some homemade cake!?
