“explora Patagonia exceeded expectations. Firstly, what a stunningly beautiful location right in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park with views that change frequently, each one a feast for the eyes. Enter the hotel to the warmest of welcomes from Kareen and members of the explora staff who without exception were truly magnificent. The facilities of the hotel accommodate ones every need, beautifully appointed bedrooms, warm and inviting areas to relax, a delightful bar and dining room with windows that showcase the snow-capped mountains, lake and waterfall. Breakfast, lunch & dinner offered delicious, healthy and well portioned food accompanied by a selection of fine wines. The menu has a wide range of choices which changes each day and should you desire a specific dish, the staff will endeavour to meet your request. Restaurant staff to be commended include Isiaka, Paula, Francisca & Nicolo. The range of activities on offer is exceptional and the guides are professional, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Furthermore the guides attention to detail and in particular safety is most reassuring. The wonderful Gaela and her team at the stables made our horseriding experience most enjoyable. Having the opportunity to explore Patagonia and it’s unique offering in the capable hands of the staff at Explora and the comfort of its establishment was truly memorable. Highly recommended.” Brendan D.
“I have been lucky enough to stay in all of the explora’s in South America. I love to hike and I love their concept and locations. Up to now…the one in Torres del Paine in Chile was my favorite…. but with my recent stay in the Sacred Valley…it is a real toss-up. This place has only been open a little bit and although the rooms are simple (they are in all the exploras) the views are always spectacular. Right outside my window was an amazing field of Quinoa in all colors backed by the dark blue-green of the Andes. Their all-inclusive idea is wonderful as the only thing you have to worry about is which hike or excursion you are going to take the next day.” walkpl.
“explora provided a full experience of Rapa Nui. As we were taken from one site to another by our knowledgeable guides, we learned about the history and meaning of the famous moai. Several of our guides were local Rapanui, who gave an authentic view of the land. Seeing the island by hiking was a great way to see lesser known sights that we could only access on foot. The lodge is tastefully designed to blend into the landscape with a cozy lounge to relax and plan our next day’s activities. Although I would have liked to see more local food on the menu, we enjoyed the meals and especially the local appetizers served at a traditional dance demonstration and a local style barbeque dinner.” bbirdgeneau.
“If you think you know what to expect from a desert, you will get a lot more surprises. explora Atacama ensures you get all the best, if not unique, experiences of your explorations in the area. They also have the best horses that you can ride for some of the excursions. If you are up to adventure, explora team will be with you to experience it all. I did the Travesia package to Salta, Argentina as well, it completed experience overall. The change of landscape and colors from desert to the valley as well as the experience of the farmhouse on exclusive 5000 hectares of land of explora was also rather unique. I would certainly try another Travesia with explora again.” CYLIMO.
