ACTIVITIES:


Stable And Horses

Explora Patagonia is the only hotel in the area with its own horses, bred and trained especially by us for our traveler’s horse expeditions. Our 26 horses of different breeds and crosses have been raised in the Ibáñez family estate in the central valley of Chile. Their care is the responsibility of a team led by Gaela Hourcq, veterinarian horse specialist.



Gaela Hourcq, Horse Expert

Of French nationality, Gaela has over 15 years of professional equine experience having worked in prestigious stables in England, Ireland, France, United States, and Japan. She has been with explora for five years supervising the breeding, raising, breaking, feeding and care of the horses.



2 De Enero Ranch

Along with its pristine landscapes, Patagonia is home to the peculiar and legendary gaucho culture. 53 km from the hotel, at the 2 de Enero Ranch, a 6,000-hectare ranch property of explora, you can share a mate with them.



The CapHornier

Cape Horn (the southernmost point of Tierra del Fuego) was discovered in 1616 by the explorer and Dutch businessman Jacob Le Maire, searching for an alternative route to the Strait of Magellan, under Spanish control, to establish commerce with the far east.With time, the intense winds and waves of this pass transformed it into a trial for the bravest sailors of the world.In 1937, in the French port of Saint Malo, the first Brotherhood of CapHornier Captains was founded. It brought together a select group of sailors who, with more courage than technology, shared the experience of having crossed Cape Horn, propelled only by the force of the wind. The spirit of Saint Malo and his celebration of loyalty, bravery, decision and leadership spread to Chile, Australia, Finland, England, New Zealand, Norway, and Holland.


Ancient roots

The gaucho, a typical figure of Patagonia, is responsible for the tasks on the ranch. A free and solitary personality (although very hospitable), he rises before sunrise to drive the livestock over the plains and occupies himself with the activities of the farm. An expert rider, he is also skilled in the use of the boleadoras, a weapon composed of rocks joined by lines of leather used by the ancient tehuelches.Of the four ethnic groups that originally inhabited this territory, only a few dozen descendants still survive. The first European to arrive in Patagonia was Magellan, who discovered the strait in the extreme south of America that today bears his name. His chronicles tell of meeting men of great stature and describes, with surprise, the large human footprints he saw along the Patagonian coast.

Practically An Uninhabited Area

Since time immemorial, numerous ships arrived believing that they had reached the gates of the unknown Terra Australis, a legendary continent that maps situated at the extreme southern end of the globe. Today, just as it was 500 years ago, Patagonia remains largely unknown and wild, maintaining its place as the end of the world.Patagonia is a practically uninhabited area. The closest cities to the Torres del Paine National Park are Puerto Natales and Punta Arenas, 147 and 393 km away respectively.



Adventure

For some of our members, a perfect vacation is best achieved by completing an exhilarating outdoor challenge. The following three properties excel at adventure.



Explora en Patagonia

Wilderness lodge on the spectacular shores of Lake Pehoé amid the natural splendors of Torres del Paine National Park. The contemporary lodge contains 50 accommodations featuring radiant-heat floors, Berber carpets, wood-paneled walls, handcrafted furnishings, lavish granite/slate baths and breathtaking views.



Go Biking

Again, This Is An Activity That Most Travellers To Torres Del Paine Don’t Even Think Of. Still, There Is Some Rather Good Single Track Here, Especially Around The East Side Of The Park. There Are Also Flat Sections, Great For Those That Wish To Take A More Leisured Ride. It’s A Great Way To Get Away From The Crowds And Cover More Distance Than Hiking.



Go Fly Fishing

Fly Fishing In Torres Del Paine Is One Of Those Activities That Flies Under The Radar. Most People Come For The Hikes And The Views, But It’s Also Possible To Catch Some Healthy Browns Here And Sometimes Salmon And Carp. There Are Numerous Lakes That Are Great For Fishing Between Puerto Natales And Torres Del Paine, But If You Want To String One Up With The Amazing Paine Massif In The Background, Your Best Bet Is Along Rio Serrano. Remota Lodge Organizes Day Trips Into The Park For Fly Fishing With Expert Guides.



Ice Hike On Glacier Grey

Another Experience That Will Make You Feel Cut Off From Civilization, Is Ice Hiking On Glacier Grey. Many People Know It’s Possible To Ice Hike On The Perito Moreno Glacier In Argentina, But Far Fewer Know It’s Possible On Glacier Grey As Well. And It May Just Offer A Superior Experience. Unlike Perito Moreno, There Is Only One Operator Allowed To Take Tours On Glacier Grey, Which Means Your Group Is Totally Alone On The Glacier. It’s Possible For Complete Beginners To Make The Ice Hike, However You Must Be At Least 15 Years Old.



Kayak On The Azur Waters Of The Park

Kayaking In Torres Del Paine Can Be A Truly Serene Adventure – Getting A Chance To See The Deep Blue Of The Icebergs On Lago Grey Is A Rare And Humbling Experience. There Are A Few Places That Kayaking Is Possible, Including Lago Grey, Rio Grey And Rio Serrano. There Are Multiple Formats For Kayaking Here As Well, From A Two Hour Quick Paddle To A Multi Day Trip. For Example, It’s Possible To Start Off At The South End Of Lago Grey, Kayak Down Grey River And Then Follow The Serrano River To The Glacier With The Same Name. Epic And Isolated.



Trek To The Mirador In Valley Frances To Hear The Sound Of Avalanches

Valley Frances Is Located In The Middle Of The W Trek, Sandwiched Between The Trail To Lago Grey In The West And The Hike To The Towers In The East. It Is The Middle Stroke Of The “W” If You Will. To Reach The Mirador, You Will Hike About An Hour’s Distance North Of Campamento Italiano, A Free Camping Site Located At The Base Of The Valley. If You Are Lugging Your Backpack Along, You Can Drop It Off At Italiano And Pick It Up On The Way Back. Once You Reach The Mirador, Stop And Listen For The Sound Of Mini Avalanches. You’ll Probably Have Heard A Few On The Way Up – The Noise Is Louder Than You Would Expect. The Problem Is, They Usually Occur When You Are Not Paying Attention, So Trying To Spot The The Tell-tale Snow That Cascades Down The Cliffs Of The Nearby Mountain Range Like A Snowy Waterfall Is Not Always Easy. A Few Hundred Feet Before The Mirador Is A Good Place To Stop And Take A Lunch Break On One Of The Huge Boulders Scattered Along The Valley. With Some Patience, You Should Be Able To Spot The Avalanches.



Spot Puma And Guanaco

There Are Over 26 Different Mammal Species In Torres Del Paine, But Probably The Two Most Famous Are The Guanaco And Puma. Guanaco Are A Camelid Species That At One Point Were Very Close To Becoming Extent. Now They Flourish In And Around Torres Del Paine. The Guanaco Can Be Easily Seen On Your Transfer Into The Park, However They Are Less Common On Trekking Routes. Puma, On The Other Hand, Are Especially Difficult To See And Generally You Will Need To Find A Specialist Guide To Track Them Down.



Trek To The Towers Of Paine

One Of The Highlights Of Any Trip To Torres Del Paine National Park, Is A Hike To See The Towers That Give The Park It’s Name. Like Cleopatras Needles, These Towers Raise Sharply Into The Air. At The Base Of The Towers, A Turquoise Lake Sits Prominently. Many Hikers Make The Trek Early In The Morning. At Dawn, The Towers Are The First Illuminated By A Blaze Of Orange, Giving The Appearance That They Are Burning Against The Deep Blue Back Drop Of The Sky.
