A sparkling new top-end explora lodge offers superb wilderness experiences nestled below the jagged peaks of Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, deep within Los Glaciares National Park.

The popular "explora" portfolio of superior, experience-orientated and environmentally friendly properties in remote wilderness landscapes is enhanced with this striking lodge in Los Glaciares National Park, Argentine Patagonia. At the foot of giant glaciated peaks, its contemporary, low-rise buildings nestle harmoniously in Los Huemules Natural Reserve, devoted to the preservation of native flora and fauna.

These are the most comfortable lodgings available in this far-flung corner of Patagonia, with personalised service, spacious modern guest rooms and suites fashioned with generous use of silky blond wood, and delicious high-end cuisine. The lunch and dinner menus are inspired by regional Patagonian recipes. There’s a full spa service with hydro-massages, sauna, and a massage room especially designed to enjoy the views.

The moment you step out outside, the reserve's trails reveal native Patagonian forests, a tumbling glacier, immense lagoons and cloud-swirling views of the Fitz Roy massif’s spiky peaks. Enjoy superb guided activities and, after a day spent outdoors, return to your cosy retreat to relax, recharge and socialise.

Our Expert's Opinion

I love everything about the explora properties and the newest addition at El Chalten did not disappoint. You can always rely on outstanding guides who go above and beyond - I was amazed to feel like our little group were the only people in the world, exploring virtually untouched wilderness when just a couple of hours down the road is one of Argentina’s most visited sites.
