Patagonia is synonymous with exploration, yet few get the opportunity to experience the majestic granite peaks, glaciers, lakes and waterfalls of Patagonia’s Torres del Paine Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Set on the shores of Lake Pehoe, on the southernmost tip of South America, the refined comfort of explora Patagonia will provide you with a relaxing home base between trips with expert guides on foot, horseback, van or boat as you journey through a land of which others only dream.



Conceived as an exploration base site, explora Patagonia was designed with an aura of mystery, showcasing awe-inspiring views. Interiors featuring lenga and cypress woods, handcrafted slate and copper accents offer refined comfort rather than opulence: plenty of hot and cold water, comfortable temperatures in winter and summer, privacy, silence and darkness at night. Conveniences include an indoor heated lap pool, sauna, massage and open-air Jacuzzis.



Choose form 8-10 outing options daily.

explora believes the best way to discover something new about nature, the world and ourselves is by enjoying unexplored beauties first-hand. The unusually shaped peaks of the Paine Mountains make it a mythical place, its legends forged by famous explorers and missionaries. Daily excursions allow guests in small groups of eight to relive the mythical while creating their own unforgettable memories. Of course guests may also choose to enjoy the library, wine bar, hotel shop or dining room with exceptional cuisine. Programs include transfers to andfrom the local airport, lodging, full board, bar, explorations with bilingual guides, all equipment, horses and vehicles.



explora offers luxury based on details, supplying appropriate food for explorations, and food and wine to stir the senses at the lodge. Local products are mainly used and wines from Chile’s vineyards are served.



Since its origins, explora has always maintained its operations with sustainability, through an important relationship with the community and the environment. In recent years it has become more apparent that these areas deserve proper and sustainable care which has been channeled professionally by “Fundación explora,” an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to care for and promote the development of the natural and cultural heritage in the areas where explora operates. It promotes concrete initiatives that contribute towards conserving the nature, culture and development of local communities.



Daily flights are available from Santiago, Chile, to Punta Arenas. explora staff welcomes guests at the airport and transports them in a comfortable van for the five-hour trip to explora Patagonia.
