On the Fitz Roy trail

Heading towards Laguna De Los Tres about 6 km into the walk

Everyone who backpacks to El Chalten does the Fitz Roy trail. And we were lucky enough to do it on a clear fairly windless day.

It’s 20 km there and back to Laguna De Los Tres –  the stunning blue lake that sits below the dramatic jagged peaks. Most of the walk is easy through shaded forests and along a crystal clear river. But not the final kilometre that rises some 450m and took us around 50 minutes.

Together and separately we’ve done some amazing trekking, but this was probably our best ever one-day trek.

One thought on “On the Fitz Roy trail

  1. We thought we saw condors up there at the lake – could have been romanticising the surroundings though (or hallucinating after the walk!). Your Gap Year is bringing back so memories for us, fabulous!
