Explora Patagonia


Explora Patagonia is a luxurious lodge in the heart of the Torres del Paine National Park, where a day's exploring of this incredible environment is made even more enjoyable by the comforts of the evening: heated pools, gourmet meals, vintage wines and a fantastic view of the granite towers as well as Lake Pehoe.  Explora have focused on the smallest of details such as; bed linen imported from Barcelona, tapestries from New York and wicker furniture from Chimbarongo. All of the other furniture is handmade, using a variety of local woods. Explora lodge is unquestionably the best place to stay inside Torres del Paine national Park

Why we recommend it:

  • Great location in front of the lake
  • Superb base to explore the national park
  • The best hotel inside Torres del Paine
  • Brilliant guides and staff
  • Expensive




Explora has been built of cement and wood beams, a combination able to withstand the Patagonian climate’s wide-ranging temperatures and strong winds. The interior is warm and light where they have created a lighting effect by combining the warm color in the veins of local lenga wood with white walls in certain parts of the lodge.

Located 100 meters (109 yards) from the lodge and reached by a sloping wooden walkway, is there bath house, which has a heated indoor swimming pool, a sauna and four open-air Jacuzzis, all with views of Lago Pehoé and Macizo del Paine. Here they also offer different types of massage with essential oils, such as therapeutic, relaxing or energising massage.

Hotel Salto Chico is the only lodge in the area with its own horses, which have been bred and trained especially. The stables are 9 kilometers (5.6 miles) from the lodge and are home to 26 horses of different breeds and mixes, especially trained so any standard of rider can ride.

Explora has 50 comfortable rooms, all with captivating views of the area. The sophisticated design incorporates native lenga wood and cypress, while the floor is made of almond wood. Each room has a small living area, hydromassage bath and extremely comfortable beds
