With its awe-inspiring views of mountains and waterfalls, and a location in a UNESCO biosphere, the all-inclusive explora Patagonia is an ideal base for experiencing the pristine Chilean wilderness.

explora has managed to bring luxury to the wilderness without taming either component. This minimalist resort packages daily excursions into your trip to ensure you fully experience the windswept beauty of Patagonia, whether you're hiking, horseback riding, or birdwatching.

explora Patagonia is centered in the luxurious Hotel Salto Chico, a lodge at the mouth of a waterfall in Torres del Paine National Park, a UNESCO biosphere reserve. The hotel offers a menu of daily explorations each morning, including hikes in the majestic Chilean mountains or trail rides on horses from the resort's stable.

All 50 television-free rooms offer sleek eco-conscious design, with native lenga wood details and almond wood floors. Stomach rumbling? Venture into the barbecue area for a spit-roast lamb prepared by Patagonian gauchos, and sample varietals of Chilean wine. Wind down at the lodge's bathhouse, which features a swimming pool, massages, and a stunning view of Lago Pehoé.
