Designed as the perfect base for exploring the Torres del Paine National Park. With a unique location and unsurpassed views it is possible to choose between 40 explorations on foot or on horseback to tour some circuits of the famous W and other less explored routes that allow us to know the geography and fauna characteristic of Patagonia.
Immerse yourself in this vast national park; a backpack and comfortable shoes are all you require for a trekking adventure, the best possible way to explore this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
Take full advantage of the 17 hours of daylight in summer and don’t miss out on sunrise, when the horns of the Torres del Paine massif glow purple and red. Sail on Lake Grey to admire the eponymous glacier, or paddle a kayak through its colossal blue and white icebergs.
Walking in lenga tree woods, getting to the base of Paine Towers, riding a horse through the Park’s prairies and rivers with horses specifically trained for Patagonia’s geography or cruising along the turquoise waters of Lake Pehoé are some of the experiences suggested by explora Patagonia.
Our base is a hotel built for linking man to temporary space – present and past- and the mysteries of nature. explora Patagonia is located at the center of the Torres del Paine National Park, the heart of Patagonia, declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
On the shores of Lake Pehoe, it has breathtaking views of the Paine ridge and the granite towers.
The Explorer’s Bar is the meeting place of our guides for planning explorations. Stocked with liquor and Chilean wines, the bar is frequently the meeting point of returning groups at nightfall.
Our massage room and pool area are located 100 meters away from the main building, connected by a sloped wood path. It is equipped with a heated, covered pool, sauna, and four open-air jacuzzis with views to the Paine River. Inside, you can choose from our essential oils massages: therapeutic, relaxation, energetic, and more.
STABLES & HORSES
explora Patagonia is the only hotel in the area with its own horses, bred and trained especially by us for our traveler’s horse expeditions. Our 26 horses of different breeds and crosses have been raised in the Ibáñez family estate in the central valley of Chile. Their care is the responsibility of a team led by Gaela Hourcq, veterinarian horse specialist.
2 DE ENERO RANCH
Along with its pristine landscapes, Patagonia is home to the peculiar and legendary gaucho culture. 53 km from the hotel, at the 2 de Enero Ranch, a 6,000-hectare ranch property of explora, you can share a mate with them.

Our explorations, always led by a competent and bilingual guide from our Guide School, take place in English or Spanish for groups of maximum eight travelers.
