We stayed for 4 nights in this wonderful hotel and it is one of the best travel experiences we have ever had. Prior to “Explora” we had been in a cruise from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas. The Explora team picked us up in the port and drove us (about 4 hours) to the hotel. Once there, we were amazed by... More

Stayed here in late December for our honeymoon. First off - the hotel is in the best possible location, you can see the mountains and late right from your room! It's the only 5-star hotel located in the park. From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by the professionalism of the staff. We were greeted by at least... More

A new experience for us in eco-tourism. Explora is about letting go of everyday stresses, getting in touch with the environment and experiencing nature. The host of physical activities within the dramatic Torres del Paine park coupled with the volatile and extreme Patagonian weather provided an amazing holiday experience. The hotel is luxurious and well run, the cuisine good, the... More

Explore Patagonia is located in Torres del Paine National Park, on Lake Pehoé. It is surrounded by breathtaking views. The restaurant, lounge areas, and most rooms have a view of the Paine Massif. (See photo.) When you are not on one of the 40 or so activities offered by the hotel, you will be gazing at the view. Rooms There... More

Stayed 4 nights at the beginning of November 2014 as part of a hiking group. We came prepared to hike all day every day in all kinds of weather and we were not disappointed with either the hiking trips or the hotel. It was a complete contrast to the Singular hotel (outside the park) that we had just spent 3... More

Just go. Pack well. Enjoy the incredible hiking, glaciers, animal life, horse back riding, lakes, the crazy weather, the AMAZING staff /guides and meeting all of the other wonderful hotel guests. Words can not describe how special the park and this hotel are. Best trip ever.

Wow... we'd been looking forward to coming to Explora for a while, but our experience far surpassed our expectations. It was kind of like "summer camp," but the luxury version in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The location was fantastic. The expeditions, both hikes and horseback riding, were excellent. The resort was beautiful and comfortable. Our... More

My husband and I spent 8 days here in December and we wanted to stay much, much longer. Any superlative you pick can be used to describe the hotel, the guides and the park. By design, all of the hotel rooms have breathtaking views, gorgeous views that are constantly changing. How good was the food? I hiked over 80 miles... More

The Explora Hotel in Patagonia had been a dream of ours for a long time, and we were not disappointed. We were blown away by the location, the hotel itself, the staff and service, and the excursions we took. If this hotel is not on your bucket list, it certainly should be. Set on the edge of Lake Pehoe in... More
