About Us

explora is a company founded to encourage a new attitude towards travel, in remote regions of the Southern tip of South America.explora has four locations: explora Patagonia in Torres del Paine National Park, explora Atacama in the Atacama Desert, explora Rapa Nui located in the middle of the Pacific and explora Valle Sagrado in Sacred Valley, Cusco, Peru.

Only luxury property located in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park, 400 km (249 miles) north of Punta Arenas, The park is surrounded by the impressive Paine mountain range. With unusually-shaped mountains, glaciers, lakes and waterfalls, plus unique flora and fauna, Torres del Paine is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world. The park was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1978.

THE LODGE: Our hotel opened on the banks of the Salto Chico waterfall. It affords an excellent view of the unique Paine Massif and two of the three impressive torres, or towers, which give the park its name.The lodge has 49 rooms and a variety of inviting spaces. It was designed to create a dialogue with its environment, putting human beings in touch with the sublimity of their surroundings.

EXPLORATIONS: We have over 50 different guided hikes and horseback rides with different difficulty levels ranging from easy to expert, and different durations, half day or full day.

CLIMATE: In the heart of Patagonia, the Torres del Paine National Park has a microclimate with pleasant temperatures all year round. There are two main, distinctive climates, which dominate the area. There are medium intensity winds of around 20 km/h – which in summer can produce gusts of up to 110 km/h–, constantly changing the weather within the park. In just minutes, the strong winds can darken the sky or disperse the storm clouds.

EXPLORA TRAVESIAS: The travesías are a unique kind of journey especially for people who are well-traveled and enjoy new experiences. Each of these nomadic journeys takes several days, as we travel through little-known, remote areas of remarkable beauty. Throughout the journey, we will cross country borders, explore diverse areas and stay in many different places all adapted by us to be simple yet comfortable. We will enjoy high quality meals, perfect for the energy we will need for the physical exertion of the journey, always together with good company and conversation. We will travel in special well-equipped vehicles with satellite communication capabilities. Each group will have up to six people, accompanied by an expert guide, a chef and support personnel. All of these journeys leave from (or end at) one of our lodges in Atacama (Travesia UYUNI or SALTA) or Patagonia (Travesia EL CHALTEN)
