Exceptional experience-driven hotel in one of South America's most spellbinding locations, with its own brand of adventurous and totally unpretentious luxury.

This exceptional hotel is out of the ordinary in every sense, from its eye-popping location on Lake Pehoé surrounded by granite massifs to the experience-driven explora ethos, which places nature and adventure at the forefront of its own totally unpretentious brand of luxury.

Explora Torres del Paine is a sumptuously comfortable base from which to enjoy the jagged mountains, wildflower meadows, sinuous rivers and glaciers that define this windswept wilderness of breathtaking beauty. You can explore Torres del Paine National Park on foot or horseback, or simply relax and enjoy the scenery from the hotel, where the simplicity of the design aesthetic only accentuates the vistas framed by panoramic windows.

Though there's an emphasis on the great outdoors, Explora Torres del Paine is a family-friendly place that welcomes guests of all ages and fitness levels – the included programme of activities is tailored around each individual. Excursions, led by expert guides, include hikes to Lago Grey Glacier and the spectacular trek to the peaks of Las Torres, and the hotel also has daily riding options for equestrians from beginner-level up.

On arrival at Punta Arenas airport, you will be met and driven to the hotel, a 4-5 hour journey through rugged, remote, and eerily beautiful scenery. The hotel is just 90-minutes' drive from Puerto Natales.

Our Expert's Opinion

So many superlatives come to mind when I think about my stay at explora, although the memory I think back to most often is relaxing in a lakeside hot tub and enjoying a glass of champagne after a long and blustery hike to the base of the towers. Explora really strikes the balance between adventure and luxury which is what I loved about the place!
