Continuing on with our Patagonia Photography Tour, our itinerary has us doing a day hike to Laguna de Los Tres. Still working from our current base in El Chaltén, Argentina, the trail to Laguna de Los Tres starts right at the edge of town. The Laguna, or Lagoon in English, is a small lake, flanked by the mountain peaks of Mount Fitz Roy, Aguja Poincenot, and Cerro Torre. The picturesque lake is an ideal foreground element for the surrounding peaks and both long exposure photography fans and mirror image shooters will fall in love with this iconic location.

Laguna de Los Tres is one of the most celebrated hikes in the Los Glaciares National Park as the hike is both stunning and accessible for those with even moderate hiking experience. Winding past frozen lakes, vast glaciers, granite spires and native woodland, the hike offers something for just about any photographer that chooses to experience the beauty of the trail. Walkable in one day, or as an easy overnight, scenes along the trail offer long exposure photography opportunities, high dynamic range (HDR) imaging, focus stacking and even large scale panoramic images.

The early part of the hike is somewhat steep and offers forest containing native species of ñirre and lenga, as well as yellow-flowered Calafate bushes. Before long Laguna Capri, a beautiful lake and campground offer its stunning scenery up for the taking. One must be careful not to get too distracted here and miss the goal of the hike altogether. Following the river from Laguna Capri, one comes to a river crossing and arrives at Campamento Poincenot, the main campground for those splitting the hike into two days.

To continue hiking to Laguna de Los Tres, one must take the path that heads westward to cross Rio Blanco, pass through Campamento Rio Blanco (the primary campground for Mount Fitz Roy climbers) and then take the path out of the left side of the campground to ascend over steep, loose scree overcoming the final hurdle on the trail. This last effort is rewarding with stunning, photographic views of the lake and the mountain range behind it. Sun rise and sunset images featuring the Laguna can be quite spectacular and a nice reward for the effort of the hike.

With our workshop enrollment limits (no more than a 5 to 1, guide to participant ratio), it goes without saying that we are available to help in any way we can. Our workshop itineraries feature equal parts stunning landscape imagery, wildlife opportunities, and imaging workflow/post-processing sessions.

Tim Neumann and Lorie McQuirt certainly hope you will join us for our Southern Latitudes – Patagonia Photography Tour, you are sure to have the time of your life, capture new and compelling fine art images, while acquiring new photography knowledge and making new friends.
