With an inspired design, the long wooden and stone buildings of Las Torres stretch through a remote area of Torres del Paine National Park, allowing every room to have a sensational view over the mountains. Ideally located just ten minutes from the park’s entrance, Las Torres is well placed for full day hikes to the three famous spires and Las Cuernos, as well as excursions by car and boat to other parts of the park. The hotel was originally a cattle farm and ranch and, although there are no cows today, the hotel is home to plenty of wildlife including an array of bird species and magnificent horses, as well as the occasional stealthy puma. The cosy rooms are well appointed with comfy beds and colourful fabrics in keeping with the rural country feel of the lodge. Food and excursions are generally included in a stay at Las Torres, and menus here offer a hearty fusion of local Chilean and international dishes. English is not always spoken with complete fluency, but with a little patience the friendly staff will happily provide information to help make the most of your stay.
