Hike through pristine wilderness and observe vast glaciers as you discover one of the true highlights of Argentine Patagonia. Explora El Chaltén acts as a base camp for those wishing to explore this spectacular region, its skyline dominated by the iconic peaks of Mount Fitz Roy. Adventure is the name of the game at this fully inclusive lodge, designed to maximise your time in El Chaltén on a range of guided excursions - all of which are included in your stay so you can do as much or as little as you like. Included activities range from overland trips by vehicle, rock climbing and ice trekking, as well as more traditional hiking through the surrounding valleys and mountain ranges, all designed to take you truly off the beaten path. Itineraries are totally flexible, depending on the weather and your requirements, and every day you will be given the opportunity to plan the choice of activities for the following day.
The lodge itself boasts just 20 rooms and suites, replicating the style of traditional Patagonian estancias with a modern twist, synonymous with the Explora brand. All are spacious and equipped with plenty of space for all your gear, as well as ensuite bathrooms and large windows facing towards the marconi glacier and Electrico valley. The common areas are designed to make the most of the views and are complete with a bar, restaurant and cosy lounge area. There is also a spa for guests to indulge and unwind on return from days out hiking.
We recommend a minimum stay of four nights to make the most out of your time in El Chaltén.
