The Aisén region in northern Patagonia is ideal Explora territory. One of Chile’s final frontiers, those who make the effort to get here are amply rewarded by a bounty of scenery and nature on a par with Patagonia’s better-known, more visited highlights.

This new addition to Explora’s luxury portfolio of remote lodges is a 6-7hr drive south of Balmaceda airport, through a seemingly cinematic succession of views along the Carretera Austral highway. The newly created Patagonia National Park was a donation to the Chilean people by the Tompkins Conservation Foundation, established by Douglas and Kristine Tompkins. With just 10 guest rooms and suites there will be an exclusive, intimate feel to Explora’s smallest property. We anticipate the classic ingredients of Explora's signature wilderness experiences to be on offer throughout, with superb guided activities by day and, after a day in the great outdoors, a cosy retreat with ample space to relax, recharge and socialise, high-end cuisine and the most comfortable lodgings available in this far-flung corner of Patagonia.

What we think

Explora’s new lodge is just south of Lago of General Carrera, South America’s second lake after Titicaca, yet hardly known outside of Patagonia!
