Explora Patagonia, Chile

This is your chance to stay in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park – a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve – in a ‘hotel built for linking man to temporary space’.

 

The architecture is unmistakeably leading edge. Lines of windows zig zag across white walls that appear to be tumbling down a hillside towards the glass-smooth Lake Pehoe. And in the background is the monumental natural architecture of the peaks of Torres del Paine National Park; dramatic, snow covered rock spires clawing at the sky.

If your taste in landscapes is for rugged beauty, wild skies with ragged white clouds and mirror-like lakes, visit Explora Patagonia on your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Chile. Even more so if your preferred mode of transport is on horseback and you have a fine appreciation for aesthetically pleasing modern architecture. And especially if you also appreciate contemporary luxury and fusion food that’s designed to promote a sensation of wellbeing, served with excellent Chilean wine.
