A very special place

This was the first of three stops at lodges on our 3-week visit to Patagonia. It was the perfect place to start. And to start, it was the perfect Explora Lodge. The remoteness of the lodge and the park were perfect for us: we never saw any other hikers or paddlers during our excursions, only a handful of people stayed at the lodge (12 rooms in total) during the 5 days there.

The 6-hour journey to get there from the airport passed quickly with the beautiful scenery we crossed.

The food was truly amazing, and as a vegetarian, they prepared incredible meals for me.

The guides were very special in the care they took to ensure that the excursions fit well and with the knowledge they had of the flora and fauna and the legacy of the national park. And we saw A LOT of flora and fauna. A shoutout to Nico, who was a great guide and is now considered a friend.

We loved this northern part of Patagonia, very different from Torres del Paine, but equally extraordinary.

A very special lodge and park, and we are very happy to have visited and seen a bit of the place that Doug and Kris Tompkins created with so much passion and love.

Outstanding in every way

"Management of the property was top notch. Kareen Hoffenberg, the Guest Experience Manager, was present and available to the guests, and made an appearance at each dinner to inquire about our well-being. Well done. (...) This was my 6th stay at an Explora lodge – and a worthy addition to their collection. This is a gracious, well managed property, in a unique location begging for exploration. I’d gladly come back."

Unique experience

"For travelers seeking a comprehensive, meaningful, and conservation-conscious experience. The lodge's location amidst the park, surrounded by guanacos, hares, diverse birdlife, and even an occasional puma, makes it an exceptional site. The service is extraordinary, with attention to every detail and guest's need, complemented by warmth, completing the personalized experience. The infrastructure, design, and decoration speak of understated luxury."

"Such a wonderful experience we had at Explora Hotel in Parque Nacional. The facilities and personalized attention from all the hotel staff were magnificent. The quality of the food was fantastic, the rooms comfortable and spacious, and the explorations we did with the hotel guides were the highlight. Good WIFI and above all, the beautiful location where the Hotel is situated."

Understated but obvious quality throughout

"Stunning location surrounded by mountains with a multitude of hikes nearby. The rooms are beautifully simple with large windows to the natural beauty outside. The staff are friendly, thoughtful, knowledgeable and willing to help with anything at all. Simple things are done very well and everyone seems to know your name, is interested in your experience and really loves the destination they are in."

Amazing experience at Patagonia National Park

Staying at Explora in Patagonia National Park was the best! The accommodation was clean, comfortable and warm (it was cold at night). The food was fresh and delicious and there was plenty of variety. The guides were fantastic! The whole experience was amazing. I would highly recommend it as a privileged location in the southern part of Patagonia. It was beautiful!

Amazing Place!

Amazing place, unparalleled geography, the best in the world. Excellent service, high-level food, comfortable rooms, great hospitality from all staff. Many activities to do with different levels of difficulty and duration, in the company of prepared, warm, and enthusiastic guides.

Excellent experience. The park is incredible. A beautiful place and the expeditions are amazing. We saw guanacos, ñandus, armadillos, eagles, a puma, and a truly amazing museum. 100% recommendable. The exquisite territorial cuisine is a true luxury, not to mention the staff.



You have to experience the Chacabuco Valley in Aysén with Explora
Explora’s guides help you to discover the grandeur of the Patagonia National Park with wonderful hikes to visit extreme places or for birdwatching. It is a true experience, which at times demands physical exertion, but it is more than compensated by the Lodge’s amenities and quality, in addition to exquisite and comforting food at the Explora Hotel Restaurant.

The perfect way to visit Argentine Patagonia

"Exploring El Chaltén was worth every penny we paid for the experience. The best place to start is with the hotel's service.

Everyone who worked at the hotel was incredible, and the staff was a well-oiled machine. They were very friendly and wanted to deeply discuss with us whatever they were serving, from cocktails to food. They were also very excited to share Argentine culture with us as we learned and drank Argentine mate and wine. (...)

From pick-up to drop-off, Explora El Chaltén surprised everyone, and we will fervently recommend staying here to anyone willing to listen."

Unique adventure in the wild

"It doesn't look like much from the outside and it's quite a haul to get there, but Explora Lodge is one luxurious experience once you walk in the door. The staff are all incredibly welcoming and helpful. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly and took great care to make sure that we were all safe on our hikes. They were all very flexible and adjusted hikes to our specific needs and abilities. Food was varied and plentiful. The chefs were great at meeting all of our specific needs. If you were just sitting in the lounge area someone would magically appear with a treat and the bartender was very accommodating."

Outstanding experence

"Outstanding experience if you want to get out in nature but come back to luxury. The rooms have beautiful views of a glacier, the mountains, and a river. The guides are great and help tailor the right explorations/hikes to what you want. The staff is friendly, works well together, and is constantly making sure you are having a great experience. They also have a great spa and staff. The jacuzzis and massages were much appreciated after the hikes. They also have a great bartender."

Simply Amazing

Beautiful secluded resort! Friendly, experienced and helpful guides, and attentive staff. The food was exceptional. The hikes were incredible. The room was comfortable, with luxurious bathrobes, toiletries, and a toilet heater. Hot saunas, freshly tempered Jacuzzis (electric generator). Very social if you wanted it to be. Would definitely return!

Getting it right

This is a beautiful lodge in a privileged location in a spectacular corner of Argentine Patagonia. (...)

The building is extraordinary, invisibly nestled in the lenga forest on a small hill at the mouth of the Eléctrico Valley. All the beautiful rooms have a spectacular view of the valley to the Marconi glacier. The food is fabulous (visit the outdoor grill and make friends with the kitchen staff), with many options for non-carnivores. The hostel staff is friendly, warm, and professional. Our guides were mostly highly experienced and knowledgeable local guides. The spa was very nice and underused when we were there. (...)

For us, Explora is about the excursions, and they delivered. (...)

You won't be disappointed. Go there!!!

We were delighted with our stay here. It was beautiful, luxurious, and the staff were beyond compare. The food was A+++. Very simple and delicious. If you like "fussy nouvelle cuisine" you might be disappointed in food. The bed was the coziest bed we have ever slept in!

It exceeded all expectations

A fabulous stay. Everything about this place surpassed our expectations. From the location, the food, the staff, the guides and the hikes. Everything was simply amazing!
I love their dedication to the environment and their investment to maintain it. I can’t recommend it enough. I’d love to return and will now check out their other properties too.

Incredible experience. We explored all of El Chaltén with top-notch guides and the hotel's luxuries.

The service was outstanding; they would take us everywhere and bring us back in the vans. The service everyone provided was very pleasant, always available for anything you need (…)

The Hotel's location is INCREDIBLE, in the middle of the park, with astounding views from the common areas and the rooms.

And the most important thing, the activities, which is what we went there for. We met with the guides every evening from 18:00 to 20:000 to organize the activities or explorations we wanted to do the next day. They are adapted for each group, day or moment. There are half-day and full-day excursions and with different difficulty levels.
We went with Nair, Gilda and Cecilia. Super professional.

One thing that surprised me was the fire area, where all the guests would go for a glass of wine and a snack and you could watch how they cooked the day's meal. And you got to know the other guests!

A unique resort stands out for its active adventures!

My daughter and I spent 4 nights in Explora and fell in love. The entire concept of a healthy and active life with serious respect for the environment is truly unique. Explora seems to be on the cutting edge of a new kind of travel experience.
The activities program is what really makes Explora special. Every evening, each guest sits down with a member of the guide staff to help plan the next day. The weather, physical condition, expedition duration and preferences are considered.

The guide staff are very phenomenal. All of the guides we went hiking with were warm, friendly, informative, enthusiastic about their role and really loved their work. Special thanks to Rocio, a really incredible guide, who did everything possible to ensure my success in climbing up to the Laguna de los Tres. (…)

Feeling like home in heaven!

was there last week with a group of friends and let me tell you, it was EPIC!

The hotel per se it's AMAZING, with great views from Torres del Paine and cozy spaces that make you feel at home. You can tell that the architecture was extremely well thought and tried to respect the surrounding environment.

We had the opportunity to make various explorations and our Explora guides were amazing. They had all the knowledge you can think of from the Patagonia (flora, fauna, seasons, etc.) One of our guides, Papaya, was extremely helpful all the times he accompanied us: since I have a knee injury, he helped me with tips to better walk all the explorations and was super patient and supportive.

Explora offers adventures for all kinds of travelers: all from beginners and up to experienced hikers.

We also had the opportunity to do two horseback rides and the horses were super docile and obedient. I even promised myself I would sign up for riding lessons when I came back home.

The food was unbelievable good and I liked that they used local ingredients and offered us local dishes. I cannot even tell you how much wine I drank every dinner since the selection was superb! My waiter for several nights, Xavi, was extremely helpful since I have a couple of food restrictions (gluten and dairy). He made sure I always had warm gluten free bread in my table and always offered me suggestions that would accommodate my restrictions.

All the staff was always attentive and helped me solve any issues that I had.

I am now sad to be back to reality, but I am already starting to plan my next adventure in an Explora destination. I am thinking maybe the Atacama Desert will be :)

EPIC PATAGONIA + EPIC WAY TO EXPERIENCE IT. We travel widely and stay at higher end hotels or experiences like Backroads. Explora is next level. IN. EVERY. WAY. food, experience, people, service, location, design, lodging, hiking, spa. It's hard to imagine how they can improve. If you can go, go.

Incredible experience and service

"Incredible experience all around and the service was top tier. No need to compare with the other hotels as Explora's location beats out the competition by a long shot. The view is incredible from every room but we booked a Suite Exploradores room with sweeping views of the entire landscape. Food was excellent and all the tour guides were incredibly kind. Don't forget to do the horseback excursions."

Unique Experience

"What to say about Explora, it is the must. The location is unique and perfect, just in front of mountains with a surreal view. It is amazing to take breakfast and diner looking at mountains and lake (...). The staff is amazing, from welcome team, restaurant gruop, guides and management. In special mention Marisol the guest experience manager that take care of everything and everybody, always looking ways to exceed the expectations (...). In summary, it is a place for whom like good live, nice experiences with confort, with the landscape just in front of you. I want to return soon....For me is the best place to stay at Torres del Paine."

Adventure location for a once-in-a-lifetime visit

"This is the perfect place to explore Torres del Paine. The location on Lago Pehoe is well suited to visiting various locations in the park. The guides arrange many trips and you can pick from easy, hard, wildlife, etc. As is normal with the Explora concept, this is all-inclusive, so you can focus on enjoying your stay there. (...) Although there is enough to do there, e.g. swimming, sauna, lounges, the whole point is to get out and see the park, do hikes, boat trips, and see the wildlife. Guanaco are everywhere, and who knows, you might see a puma (sadly, I did not)."

Visit if you have the chance!

"We just returned from a fabulous 5 days at Explora Torres del Paine. We were a large family group with an age range of 1 year old to 77 years old. We all had a fantastic time. The setting is gorgeous with amazing views from every room. The guides were amazing and every night guests customize their plans based on their abilities and interests. We had hikes that worked for 8 and 11 year olds and hikes that were very technical and fast paced for the more avid adults. The food was great, there are choices every night and they always had a kids option for those considering brining their children. The adults loved the beautiful bar which served cocktails of the day along with anything else people might want. I can't imagine anyone visiting and not enjoying their stay- it really is a special place and we were grateful to have had a chance to visit."

Incredible Experience - First-Class Hotel

Truly the best experience I've had in Patagonia, and this is my fourth time visiting. The hotel is truly top-notch, and the customer service is of a high standard, from the person who greets you at the airport to the person who bids you farewell at the end of your stay.

Best Location-Spectacular Views-Wonderful Staff

Spectacular property and out of this world views. Marisol the Manager of the property is always a step ahead and we loved the attention to detail and care. Alejandro our primary Excursion Organizer understood exactly what we wanted to see and what would best suit our abilities. We had a corner room #12 and had views of Torres del Paine and Salto Chico waterfall. Loved the staff in the dining room. Entire trip was pure perfection.

Luxury with Magical Heaven Views

Explora should be a must visit for those who love adventure. Trekking Guides are well informed, friendly and speak great English. Especially Daniel who is a wonderful guide and also a great human being. We were able to get vegetarian and Vegan food by talking to Marisol and Manuel the head of Food beforehand. Please do so. Finally the service is excellent and they make you feel at home especially Catalina in the restaurant. A must visit for those with time and wanting to connect with nature, strongly suggest the horseback riding for beginners it is very beautiful.

One of the best ventures ever

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Explora in Torres del Paine. (…) It's very far south and a challenge to get there - but so so worth it. We loved it and recommend it very highly.

The hotel itself is beautiful - sitting in the middle of the National park there are incredible views out of every window - including our bedroom. The interior is warm and yet with a very clean design. The bartenders make fantastic cocktails which matters a lot to those it matters a lot to (aka us) - and it certainly wasn't expected.

The guides are wonderful. Friendly and full of information - earnest about what they are doing. The rest of the staff is warm and also friendly. And then the whole place feels very communal - everyone talking about their hikes and where they were before Explora and where they are going after - you walk with different people and by the end of your stay, know 50% or more of the people who are there.

It's very special. I loved it - I miss it already

Upscale Hikers Delight

Explora is world-class! A perfect experience for me and my son (guys' hiking trip) over the Christmas week. Highlights: amazing location and views; beautiful and relaxing facility; all-inclusive so you can focus only on having fun; hiking and interacting with interesting people (who would go that far if they were not interesting!); staff dedicated to making the experience the best possible; artful and delicious food and great variety; a range of hiking levels all over the park; high quality horse riding. Want a good sleep? Hike all day, have a beautiful meal and local wines (or maybe a pisco sour from the excellent bartender), chat with new friends from South Africa, then hit a great matress. Repeat the next day after an early sunrise, maybe with a rainbow. We had only a little rain, but expect lots of wind. Dress is backpackers casual; we brought too much "stuff".

This years epic surprise I didn't see coming

So the truth is I'm a frequent adventure traveler and have been to many remote and exotic places. More often than not I'm pissy and a curmudgeon about the shortcomings of places I experience. But nay, surely not this time (...) WOW. OK, it is situated in one of the remote and most beautiful places on earth. Far too windy to fly in. No airport within over a 100 miles. So the "van" trek is 2 plus hours from Puerto Natales over gravel and dirt roads, but comfortable. If you leave from Punta Arenas the van ride is 5 hours, but even then the scenery is magnificent and Explora even has a rustic cafe stop half way that is very enjoyable. What makes Explora so remarkable is their great attention to detail. From the moment they pick you up to the moment they leave you at an airport of ship, every conceivable need you might have has been thought of and addressed by Explora before you get there. The quality of staff blew me away. (...) There are many different hikes, trails, activities including horseback rides. We did everything. All day, every day. Every guide was personable, knowledgeable and made our time most enjoyable. The resort itself is very well designed and immaculately maintained. Our room and its service was meticulous. The view from our room of the Torres del Paine peaks was breathtaking. And even more pleasantly surprising is that when Explora says your stay is all-inclusive, it really is. The food is absolutely 4 star, the wines excellent, the trail meals super and there are no nickle and dime charges for anything. All in all a really surprising and excellent experience. Kudos to whomever has put such attention to detail and a loving hand on a spectacular place.
