Fitz Roy, Laguna de los Tres

Fitz Roy, Laguna de los Tres

This particular trekking circuit is considered the main one on the area, which can not be left out of the passengers with mountaineering activities desire schedule, being one of the most attractive and shocking on the area because it leads us on the base of mount Fitz Roy.

Between 07:30 and 09:00 (Schedule to be reviewed and informed the previous day); our guide with the driver pick the passengers on truck or mini-bus, to take them to the starting point of the trail, which is located at 18 kms from El Chalten ( estimated time of 30/40 minutes in bus). As soon as we leave the town, from inside the vehicle they will begin to amaze under reason of the Andean landscape, with the astonishing valley of Rio de las Vueltas on the right side, and in parts of the road, the walls of Fitz Roy are already on sight.

When arriving trough the route to Rio Blanco (White River), where the activity begins, we introduce ourselves into a forest populated with Lengas (beech trees) and Ñires, with soft unevenness, and only after one hour of walking, the first lookout point surprises us with a privileged view to Glaciar de Piedras Blancas (White Stone Glacier).

After this stop, taking photographs and receiving information from the guide, at about 45 more minutes Poincenot camping area is encountered, where surely tents of trekkers of all nationalities can be found. Then, very close, the river is crossed through a hanging bridge, with the intention of arriving to the “Rio Blanco” base camp, which is solely used by climbers. Here, there is also a shelter made out of logs constructed by the National Park Rangers, with the intention of aiding travelers under bad or rough weather. From this point, those with more energy, the guide will lead them to the Laguna de los Tres lookout point, which, starting from Rio Blanco is 500 meters of unevenness in 1 hour trekking. From said lookout point we can enjoy a privileged view of the Fitz Roy massif, the lagoon and their glaciers. On a short distance, can also be appreciated a stunning view of Laguna Sucia(Dirty Lagoon).

After enjoying lunch there, we head back to El Chalten through the Laguna Capri lookout point trail section. Approximately between 17:00 and 18:00 should be back in town or the hotel.
