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.
