We propose a search for light (anti)hypernuclei with the ALICE detector at the LHC. The study is based in a previous work done by the STAR collaboration at RHIC, where the anti-hypertriton (the lightest anti-hypernuclei, composed by $\bar{p}\bar{n}\bar\Lambda$) was first observed. The energetic frontier available at LHC, together with new experimental techniques present at ALICE, make possible new investigations that could not be done at STAR.
