Detailed Trek Itinerary
Day One – Trek to Laguna de los Tres
After breakfast this morning we will drive from El Chalten up to El Pilar, from where we will start our trek through the woods on the western side of Mount Polo. We'll climb up to the Poincenot campsite, enjoying some splendid views down the Rio Blanco valley and over to the Piedras Blancas glacier. From the campsite we will start our climb up the Laguna de los Tres. There are no two ways about it: this is a tough - although non-technical - climb, but the scenery at the top is your reward: Mount Fitzroy in all its glory it revealed before you, alongside the the beautiful Lake Sucia, where we'll stop for lunch.
In the afternoon, we will descend by a slightly different route, passing the lovely Lake Capri, before we arrive back in El Chalten this evening. (L)
Our standard price for the Laguna de los Tres trek is £150 per person, which includes your guide and transport, and a boxed lunch.
We can fit this trek into just about any of our holidays in Argentina, although for most of them we will also need to include transportation between El Calafate to El Chalten, and also some overnight accommodation in El Chalten.
