The Laguna de los Tres is the most classic, spectacular and unforgettable trek of southern Patagonia. An ideal hike to do in a single day.

During this full day trek around Laguna de los Tres, I will guide you through breathtaking landscapes to reach the base of the mythical Mount Fitz Roy. In addition, along the way you will discover lagoons of different colors and imposing glaciers.

The total distance of the trek is between 20 and 22 kilometers with an elevation gain of 800 meters. Keep in mind we must walk almost 10 hours in total. It’s a full day trek suitable for well trained people.

As for the itinerary, we will meet in El Chaltén to be taken to the Hostería El Pilar by a private transfer. So, we start walking in direction to the Rio Blanco Valley. After passing the Piedras Blancas Glacier’s viewpoint and the Poincenot camp, we will get to the Laguna de los Tres.

The views from that lagoon are really stunning. In fact, it’s one of the best panoramic scenery of the Mount Fitz Roy! After having lunch in Laguna de los Tres we must descend across the Capri Lagoon towards El Chaltén.

I will lead a group of minimum 2 guests and maximum 15. The perfect conditions in the Argentinian Patagonia are during springtime and summer, from October till April.

And if you have some extra days in El Chaltén and you love challenges, you can also take a look at my hiking traverse in Paso del Viento or the 6-day trek to the base camps of Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre.

Contact me now if you want to plan your next adventure in the Patagonia with me! I will be here, happy to help you reach the most amazing corners of El Chaltén!

About the Guide

 
 

Certified UIAGM-IFMGA Mountain Guide from Argentina.

I live in El Chaltén since 1998. I'm originally from Bariloche and I started with mountain activities when I was 15 years old. I've done climbing and ascents in many mountains of Patagonia, Perú, Bolivia, United States and Europe; such as Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Alpamayo, El Capitán, Mont Blanc and Aconcagua among others. I'm also a Ski Instructor and I am passionate for backcountry ski.

I speak fluent English, Italian and French and have been leading trips and expeditions for more than 10 years. I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available for the trip you request, one of my colleagues will guide you!
