Torres del Paine Explora Salto Chico Patagonia

The View Above is From the Explora Lodge


The Explora Lodge Hotel in Torres del Paine is a luxury lodge located beside the turquoise-coloured, Lake Pehoe. Occupying a prestigious spot in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park, the lodge offers stunning views to the Cuernos of Paine.

Above all, this is the hotel that began the concept of Luxury Adventure Lodges in South America, which has since spawned a number of “copy cat” projects. However, Explora Salto Chico still retains the crown as being the first as well as occupying what is arguably the best location in Torres del Paine with direct and impressive views to the central Massif of Torres del Paine.
