Travel to El Chaltén from El Calafate to venture on this trekking to Laguna de los Tres, at the foot of the famous Mount Fitz Roy. It is a challenging walk along the Fitz Roy path, 20 total kilometers. The duration of the trek can vary depending on the pace and physical condition of each person, but generally it is estimated between 8 and 9 hours, including short breaks and stops to admire the landscape, which will amaze you throughout the entire journey.

Once at your destination, we give you a talk about the trail, we give you walking sticks and the map, and the trekking begins. During the first section you will cross the forest until you reach Laguna Capri, the first technical stop. You will be surprised by the color of the water and the nature that surrounds this lagoon, in addition, the views of Fitz Roy are unmissable. Returning to the trail, we cross the Río Blanco bridge until we reach Camping Poincenot, a totally wild camp in the middle of the native forest. Crossing Poincenot, we arrive at the beginning of the climb to Laguna de los Tres. Due to the altimetry it presents and the terrain conditions, this last kilometer is the most difficult of the trail. During this climb, the views of the landscape are incredible, being able to appreciate the Mother and Daughter Lagoon from above. When it seems like you are about to arrive, another 300 meter climb awaits you, but once at the top, all the effort was worth it. You are surprised by the immense nature and the color of the water. The feeling is impossible to describe in words. Arrival at Chaltén: 18:00 Arrival at your hotel in El Calafate: 9:00 p.m.
