An exclusive Patagonia hotel of just 20 rooms, Explora El Chaltén is all about enjoying the stunning scenery of this region through their long list of overland tours, self-guided hikes, climbing adventures, mountain ascents and more. It’s a place to stay if you want to get under the skin of Patagonia, albeit with roaring fires, a gourmet – locally-inspired – restaurant, guestrooms complete with panoramic views to come home to. You’re perfectly placed when staying at the remote Explora El Chaltén, too, within touching distance of Mount Fitz Roy and with the spellbinding Los Glaciares National Park nearby. It all adds up to an unforgettable experience of southern Patagonia.

Rooms at Explora El Chaltén

The 17 Guestrooms and 3 Suites of Explora El Chaltén are all designed in neutral and earthy tones to both give a sense of light, and let the scenery outside do the talking. Well-equipped with king-size beds, air-conditioning, bathrobes and slippers, heating for those chilly nights and modern bathrooms, the rooms may be minimalist in style but you have everything you need for a supremely comfortable stay here.
