Explora About

Tierras ancestrales, circundadas por montañas. Un valle fértil o uno de los desiertos más áridos del planeta. Tierras unidas por la historia, el sol y la Pachamama o madre tierra. Bienvenidos a lo remoto. Te invitamos a explorar más allá.

Atacama and Machu Picchu ancient lands

 

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.

OUR LODGES

Creemos que lujo significa contar con todos los medios necesarios tales como un ambiente cálido y acogedor que te recibe con los brazos abiertos después de llegar de exploración.

Esta es la razón por la cada lodge Explora resulta un paraíso para la desconexión y la renovación en medio de lo remoto, asegurando que cada día se viva con la máxima plenitud.

Nuestro lodge Explora en Atacama se ubica en el oasis de San Pedro de Atacama en el medio del desierto, en un terreno de 17 hectáreas, diseñado para el descanso. Este espacio no solo alberga nuestras pesebreras y caballos, si no que también un observatorio propio para observar el cielo más claro del mundo.

Por otro lado en el fértil y magnífico Valle Sagrado de los incas, nuestro lodge se encuentra rodeado de las mejores plantaciones de maíz sobre unas muy bien conservadas terrazas incas. Nuestro Spa, una casona española con frescos de cientos de años te transportara a la cultura colonial.

Explora Connects Patagonia, Torres del Paine, El Chalten, Patagonia National Park

Explore to expand perspectives, surpass limits, exchange life stories.
Explore to embrace new cultures, peoples and feelings.
Explore to go deeper.

We propose a journey where everything is taken care of: accommodation, transportation, meals and beverages. And of course, all explorations in the world’s most fascinating locations.

Podrás pedir en Atacama un pisco sour de rica rica o de chañar mientras observas la puesta de sol en nuestra terraza con vista a los volcanes.

En el Valle Sagrado déjate sorprender con la propuesta gastronómica de Virgilio Martínez y su menú que te conectará con el territorio peruano y andino del Valle Sagrado de los Incas.

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.

OUR COMMITMENT

Gaining a deeper understanding of our destinations means loving them, which inevitably raises the need to protect them. This is why Explora has made progress toward becoming Carbon Neutral and a certified B Company. We also seek to offset our historical emissions by 2030.
Our recently created Conservation Reserve in Torres del Paine partially reaffirms this commitment to protect territories and preserve them for the future.
