Chile & Argentina Private Tour

Local Time

Why You Should Go

When hiking a wide range of areas on the Patagonian Andes, it is easy to see how Torres del Paine still has hundreds of unnamed mountains, with many points inaccessible and unexplored. The features of Patagonia are remarkable: wild rivers, muddy rainforests, glaciated peaks, granted monoliths, and vast steppes. This is a place for reflection, deep solitude, and unforgettable outdoor activities.

We feel the splendid, stark wilderness of Chile’s Atacama Desert rightly deserves a place among the world’s notable natural wonders. Atacama’s unmatched beauty and colorful moonscape-like remoteness is truly spellbinding. In the backdrop of spectacular volcanoes rising 20,000 feet, Atacama (covering 54,000 sq. miles) stretches 600 miles from Peru’s southern border into northern Chile. Extraordinary full-day excursions here include the eerie, otherworldly Valley of the Moon, the Salt Flats of Tara, (featuring turquoise oasis’ with three types of flamingos living off the microscopic life), and the geysers of El Tatio.

Our favorite luxury hotel in Santiago, this 5-star, 62-room hotel is located in the heart of downtown Santiago, nestled in the lively Lastarria neighborhood and adjacent to Cerro Santa Lucia Park. This green hotel seamlessly fits in the iconic, bohemian neighborhood of Lastarria, which epitomizes the youth and creativity of the people of Santiago. The Singular Santiago is a striking combination of the early 20th-century design of Santiago and neoclassical French architecture. The hotel is mere minutes away from the Museum of Visual Arts, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Gabriela Mistral Cultural Center. Amenities include a rooftop bar with park views, a small outdoor pool, and a spa featuring a hot-tub, steam room, sauna, and gym. Perhaps the Singular’s biggest asset is its high-energy, engaging staff and outstanding service!

Though we prefer the Explora Patagonia’s unique location as the only luxury lodge within the confines of Torres del Paine National Park, we consider the 5-star Singular Patagonia to be the highest quality property in all of Patagonia! An approximately 10-minute drive from the town of Puerto Natales, the Singular is built on the National Historic Landmark site of an early 20th-century meatpacking and refrigeration plant. When walking through the various areas of the 57-room property, you see how much the sites industrial equipment has been integrated within the striking, modern design of the hotel. We were most impressed with the Singular’s 19-foot glass walls with picturesque views of the sea and mountain peaks. We feel the dining here is among the finest we have seen in all of South America: fresh breakfast buffet at Desayunador and lunch and dinner at El Asador for grilled meats and regional specialties. The homemade ice cream here is beyond delicious! Amenities include a spa, indoor/outdoor pool, and outdoor excursions with the Singular’s well-traveled guides.

Nestled on the shores of Lake Toro and facing the dramatic Torres del Paine massif, Patagonia Camp is committed to taking care of its beautiful Patagonian surroundings. This is why the Patagonia Camp is built in a way that respects the environment as much as possible. Through non-invasive architecture, the property visually and structurally adapts to the landscape in the area. The camp is completely built atop wooden posts — the terraces around the yurts, the common areas, and the boardwalks all connect to the main hall. The camp maintains the existence and survival of the plants, bushes, and trees that have lived in the area for hundreds of years. One of our local guides feels the remote and picturesque location enables you to be totally immersed in nature, with daily group hikes to the surrounding areas. Limited to only 18 yurts, Patagonia Camp is in effect, a 5-star, luxury camp with good food and a noted collection of house wines.

Eolo is a country lodge, comfortable, spacious, and somewhat similar to ancient Patagonian “estancias”. The lodge is a compound of 17 suites, all with panoramic views. Similar to the Patagonia Camp, Eolo offers a wonderful natural setting with no sacrifice in comfort and outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, and horseback riding. One can observe Lago Argentino towards the north, La Anita Valley towards the east, and the Torres del Paine and the Rico branch of the same lake towards the south. A client staying here mentioned the lamb she had here was the best anywhere in South America!
