Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Patagonia / Province of Santa Cruz / El Chalten / Laguna Capri
Hike from El Chalten to the green-blue lake of Laguna Capri, which awards visitors with picturesque views of forested hillsides and jagged snowcapped mountains. The scenic landscape and the scents of nature invite you to continue trekking, while the singing of birds and the calmness of water lure you to repose on the soft sandy shore of the lake. The water is usually too cold for swimming, but you can wade through the shoals on warmer days. Bring plenty of fresh water, snacks and sandwiches for a picnic, and a waterproof coat if you plan to camp overnight. To visit Laguna Capri on your trip to El Chalten, use our El Chalten trip app .

In this time it is difficult to go the way as the mud meets the snow, making you can slip in the best case, or get lost in the worst. However, the road is not difficult to follow. The lagoon was frozen, but there was still a photo left for a postcard.
Incredibly beautiful, camping sites available
One of the most beautiful places on the Fitz Roy trail or anywhere for that matter. So peaceful and calm in the morning. Must visit.
