With an intimate atmosphere, our lodge in Patagonia National Park is a strategic hub for exploring this vast territory and its natural wonders. Located just a few kilometers from northern ice fields and surrounded by spectacular rivers and lakes, this Patagonian destination opens the doors to a magnificent yet virtually unexplored area. We offer you a private 45-minute flight between the Balmaceda Airport and the Patagonia National Park.
Our explorations provide travelers with an in depth experience of this austral territory, for which we have outlined six different exploration zones, each with its own set of unique geographic, cultural and biosphere characteristics.

Located in a privileged site, the Explora lodge offers you an intimate and private atmosphere in this sector of Patagonia. Here you will be able to disconnect and tour the different hills and valleys. The lodge is part of a self-sustainable project, so its building materials were stones from local quarries, recycled wood, and copper for the roofs.
Douglas Tompkins visited the Chacabuco Valley for the first time in 1995, when the realized the need to protect this place. The National Forestry Co had already defined this area as a priority for conservation due to its unique and biologically diverse ecosystems. It is home to various native species from the region, such as Andean condors, guanacos, pumas and huemuls.
Relax in one of our three outdoor hot tubs as you enjoy the landscape or in one of our two massage rooms after a day of exploration.
The gastronomic offer of our Explora lodge in Patagonia National Park was designed by Pablo Jesús Rivero, owner of “Don Julio” chosen as the 14° Best Restaurant in Latin America according to the ranking of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022, and by Guido Tassi, the consulting chef at Don Julio.
