It is impossible to describe the unparalleled views found inside the angular walls of the Explora Patagonia, one of the most impressive lodges in Torres del Paine. The wrap around design of the white building follows the line of the lake, giving dual-level panoramic vistas, including the Salto Chico Waterfall and towards the three towering granite spires which are the most treasured site in the park. Understated yet luxurious, the hotel’s design is a tranquil mix of neutral tones, dark stone flooring and a refreshing nautical style, with all 50 cosy rooms and suites kitted out with luxurious bedding and tasteful local photography. As the hotel has been designed with relaxation and disconnection in mind, rooms do not feature televisions or Wi-Fi, yet do all have views of the Paine Massif, Salto Chico Waterfall or the Paine River. Personalised service and expert guiding is included during your stay and with 40 activities to choose from (including horseback riding, hiking and boat trips), your guides will aim to show you some of the less explored areas of the park to give the best experience of the geography and wildlife in Patagonia.
