Explora is an enterprise founded to encourage a new attitude towards travel, in remote regions of the Southern tip of South America. explora has three locations: explora en Patagonia, Hotel Salto Chico, in the incredibly rugged and beautiful Torres del Paine National Park of Chile's Patagonia region, explora en Atacama in northern Chile's Atacama Desert, and explora en Rapa Nui. The road to discovery is an adventure in itself at explora, with walking, biking, horseback riding on equines from explora’s own stables, and even peering deep into space through a private observatory. Expect to be surprised and inspired by accomplished, explora-trained guides.
Located in the heart of Patagonia, 400 km (249 miles) north of Punta Arenas, Torres del Paine National Park encompasses 598,000 acres. The park is surrounded by the impressive Paine mountain range (Cordillera del Paine). The weather is mild due to its close proximity to the sea, with many sunny days a year. 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. Outstanding features of the park include an astonishingly rugged mountain range of 10,000 feet peaks, and the Cuernos del Paine (Horns of Paine).
