Ancient Lands

Find yourself in ancient lands, surrounded by mountains. Explore a lush valley or one of the driest deserts on the planet, both united by history, the sun and Pachamama (or Mother Earth).

We are natural-born explorers. Our trailblazing attitude takes us on an everlasting journey of mysteries, details and legitimate cultures. Step by step, day by day.

The remote is waiting for you in the heart of South America with its vast wilderness, secluded routes and rich culture –and it is ready when you are. Our award-winning lodges invite you to come live it, love it and learn how every exploration can be a journey to conservation.

Start bonding with your surroundings from the comfort and organic design of our lodges. Each one of them tells the story of a remote marvel.

 

Welcome to the remote. Go deeper with Explora.
We believe luxury is about having all the means necessary to make the most out of the experience, such as a cozy, welcoming environment, and authentically local gastronomic experiences.

 

This is why every Explora lodge behaves as a haven of rest and restoration amid the remote – to make sure each day in the territory is lived to the fullest. Count on relaxing massages, bubbling jaccuzis and deep-blue swimming pools, among other first-rate amenities at your service.

Our lodge Explora in Atacama is located in the oasis of San Pedro de Atacama, in the middle of the desert, on a 17-hectare site conceived for relaxation. The property features a nature-inspired plunge pool, our very own stables and horses, and even an observatory for admiring the dark sky lit up with stars—one of the clearest you’ll find anywhere in the world.

To the north, Explora in the Sacred Valley of the Incas sits in a fertile valley surrounded by the majestic Andean Mountains. The lodge is located between Cusco and Machu Picchu, surrounded by corn and quinoa plantations over preserved Inca terraces, while its spa was built in the restored Pumacahua Bath House and features centuries-old frescoes, revealing a piece of history as you treat yourself to a moment of self-care.

Virgilio Martínez at Explora
An experience that connects with Andean culture.

 

The Peruvian chef Virgilio Martínez, owner of “Central”, the world’s fourth best restaurant according to the ranking The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2021, designed the menu for Explora in Peru’s Sacred Valley. It is a total culinary renewal aimed at the search for excellence and the rescue of local culture, using Andean ingredients that preparations with an identity that honors Andean cuisine.

The products used in this menu come from nearby locations and with meticulous traceability; not a single ingredient enters the kitchen without its origin being known or having passed through the hands of one of the local farmers with whom we have forged a progressive working relationship in community.
