Hotel del Paine
Simple but memorable accommodation in cosy riverside cabins with stupendous views of the Paine massif.
There are stupendous views towards the Paine massif from the basic but memorable Hotel del Paine, comprised of cosy wooden cabins strung alongside the river Paine. Accommodation is simple, but for the spectacular surroundings alone it’s an excellent choice.
Whether indoors or out, there’s no shortage of ways to appreciate the hotel’s best feature – from drinking in a sunset from lakeside benches facing truly mesmerising scenery, to admiring an ever-changing panorama from the large picture windows in the guestrooms, lounge and restaurant. There’s even a hot tub, also with views of the magnificent Cuernos del Paine.

Highlights?: Patagonia Camp and Torres del Paine National Park.CD, Shepton mallet
Highlights?: The time in Torres del Paine, both Patagonia Camp and the treks through the stunning scenery.AR, Reading
Most memorable experiences: The Atacama Desert. An impressive place with friendly people. The Ahlarkapin Observatory trip was outstanding and a real highlight.PM, Redditch
Highlight?: Trips into parts of the Atacma Desert that were not in fact desert but little islands of habitation frequented by only a few.RP, Glasgow
Most memorable experience: "So much but probably Torres del Paine, breathtakingly beautiful and not crowded although it was the busiest part of the year. Also the friendliness of the people, and lack of hassle everywhere- the only place where there was a bit was in the fish market in Santiago, but even there it was very low key and the people were not at all pushy."MT, Henley-on-Thames
Mount Fitz Roy and Los Torres, particularly the Pliegue tumblado walk.DS, Leatherhead
Highlights?: Afternoon trek in the Moon Valley Atacama to see the sunset. It was magical. Patagonian 12K trek to Grey Glacier and boat trip to face of glacier. Rapa Nui to see the Moai at the quarry and Tongariki.GB, Lytham st. annes
We have had two of the most memorable weeks in one of the world’s most varied geographical environments and the friendly Chilean people. Thank you JLA.AK, Stoke Newington
The excursions in Torres de Paine were exceptional.AD, Cambridge
Highlight?: Difficult to separate a sunny, windless clear day at Torres del Paine ( plus several others nearly as good). And deep snow in the Altiplano round Miscanti lakes. So good even the drivers were taking photos. Both quite excellent.DH, Milnthorpe
Patagonia- exceeded very high expectations. JLA were great.AH, Northampton
The Alto Plano of Bolivia was striking. Torres del Paine national park too was memorable as was Perito Moreno glacier.GOR,
The whole holiday was memorable but Patagonia Camp and the walk to the Torres del Paine was the best. Absolutely breath taking. We wished we had stayed one more night here.CB, Tonbridge
Most Memorable Moment?: For me, Torres del Paine as it appeared and disappeared through the clouds. The Explora hotel is in a fantastic setting and the views of the mountains are stunning. For my wife, she loved the Atacama and the Moon Valley in particular. Walking through the valley when there were just the three of us was really memorable.JM, Hatfield
Highlights: Arrival at Tierra Patagonia hotel: and seeing two wild pumas nearby!PG, Oxford
Highlights: WE have many good memories but we would pick out the guided walk to Laguna de los Tres at Fitzroy and the day to the French Valley at Patagonia Camp and Patagonia Camp in general.SC, Cheltenham
We have travelled a lot in our lifetime but nothing prepares you for the breadth of landscapes that you will encounter in Chile. We had three weeks there and felt we only scratched the surface.CM
I was amazed and enthralled by Chile and am looking forward to visiting again.DP, Chiswick
We have wanted to visit Chile for a very long time. You arranged a very special holiday for us, which gave us a wonderful taste of this amazing country.PCA, Riding Mill
Highlights: "Watching the Milky Way in Elquis Valley."MA, Lancaster
Most Memorable Moment?: So many overall but the glaciers, Torres, the cruise and Orcas/penguins.AB, Fordingbridge
Impossible to select one part - the whole experience was stunning and allowed us to enjoy the variety and beauty of Chile.KD, Dartford
We loved all of southern Patagonia but four days at the Explora was undoubtedly the highlight.NM, London
Three highlights: the trip over the Andes from Santiago to Mendoza with its links to San Martin's epic journey to liberate Chile and Peru in the 19th century; the three Neruda houses in Chile; and the Museo del Barro in Asuncion (Paraguay).JRF, Cambridge
We have travelled a lot in our lifetime but nothing prepares you for the breadth of landscapes that you will encounter in Chile. We had three weeks there and felt we only scratched the surface.CM, Trowbridge
Highlight: The Atacama DesertBL, Tunbridge wells
The whole experience of Atacama and Torres del Paine was amazing. In between Puerto Varas provided a welcome and relaxing contrast. The introductory tours of Santiago and Valparaiso worked very well and the guides were great... but experience tame compared to the other three destinations! Matetic was a fun last day/night.KH, London
Overall we have had two of the most memorable weeks in one of the world’s most varied geographical environments and the friendly Chilean people. Thank you JLA.SJ, Welwyn
Highlight?: The Grey GlacierJC, Ipswich
Most Memorable Moment?: Rapa Nui - a unique environment with lots of architectural and historical interest and also comtemporary culture (Tapati festival). Very interesting.AB, Burnham-On-Crouch
