Explora Patagonia National Park

A remote lodge in a privileged location inside Patagonia National Park

Discover Patagonia Park at this intimate and exciting property

Part of the exceptional Explora family, the Patagonia Park Explora brings the same high-levels of comfort and sophistication with an exciting sense of adventure and submersion in the natural world. A self-sustainable project, the property was constructed and designed to reduce interference with the natural environment. Traditional Patagonian building techniques and local material were used as well as influences from sustainable properties in national parks around the world. 

Located close to the northern ice fields and surrounded by spectacular rivers and lakes, this Patagonian destination opens the door to a magnificent yet virtually unexplored area. Set in pristine landscapes, this is the place to disconnect as you adventure into this beautiful national park. Excursions here range from high mountain ascents to gentle self guided walks. There are also overland journeys in the fleet of 4×4 jeeps. Combination explorations are also possible and you can try horse riding, biking and then even hop into a kayak to navigate the lakes and rivers close by.

The Patagonia National Park Explora is an intimate property with two suites and eight standard rooms. All of which have magnificent views to the Tamango and Tamanguito hills and calming green and grey colours of the park itself. The decor is simple, yet inviting and cosy with natural colours and textiles. 

The gastronomy is a detailed and delicious part of the hotel. The restaurant and menu have been designed by famed Latin American chefs and encapsulate the region’s vast territories and cuisines along with flavours from the rest of the continent and beyond. Committing to their sustainability processes most of the products used come from nearby small suppliers and producers, lowering the environmental impact with fresh and recently harvested products such as vegetables, fruits, eggs, cheese and meats.

The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner along with brunch and snacks. Enjoy fresh light meals or hearty dishes cooked over fire in a traditional style used by Patagonia’s ancient inhabitants. After a day of exploration the bar is the meeting point for relaxing and sharing stories. Enjoy fine wines, pisco sours and enjoy the intimate, welcoming atmosphere.

Hotel Vira Vira
Set a beautiful area of woodland, fresh water and traditional farmland that is so characteristic of the Pucon Valley, Hotel Vira Vira provides a delightful selection of comfortable accommodation with the intimate feel of a Chilean hacienda in its own 23-acre estate. The design is both modern and at one with the wild surroundings, with large windows and a warming use of wood. Just 21 beautifully crafted rooms are spread between the guest house and the main hotel building’s junior suites, with a handful of villa suites on the banks of the Liucura river and the opulent Ruca Suite set in the middle of the forest. The latter two options offer their own living room and fireplace, with a private terrace and an outdoor tub to enjoy the clear Chilean night skies. Vira Vira’s restaurant offers food created from homegrown produce, a blend of local, ancient indigenous recipes coupled with the best and truly fresh ingredients, accompanied well paired wines. The area around Pucon and the neighbouring Villarrica volcano is famed for its range of actives, from hiking and hot springs to a plethora of adventure activities. Several beautiful wilderness areas are nearby, including Huerquehue National Park, and horseback riding, mounting biking, river rafting, fly fishing, kayaking, varied hiking tours, ascents to the active volcano and even skiing on Villarrica’s slopes can be arranged. Each day, guests meet with Vira Vira’s excursion manager to discuss and plan excursions, or one can chose to explore the area around the estate, getting a glimpse at some of the rare wildlife species that live nearby or visiting the lodge’s farm to learn the skills of artisanal cheese making.
