Life at Hotel Explora Patagonia
Explora Patagonia was originally built by the Tomkins foundation, a conservation organization with a mission of confronting the crises of climate chaos and collapsing ecosystems, Conservation remains a crucial part of every aspect of life at Hotel Explora Patagonia, and the lodge was designed to blend in and limit interference with the natural environment.
The lodge’s rustic beauty, created with copper roofs, recycled wood, and stones from local quarries, blends seamlessly with the surrounding Tamango and Tamanguito hills. These hills provide mesmerizing views from each of the eight standard rooms and two suites. Thanks to king-sized beds, interconnecting rooms, and available cribs and children’s beds, the entire family can feel at home here.

Gastronomy at Explora Patagonia
Food is dear to the heart and soul of Patagonia. Embracing the region’s culinary traditions, Explora Patagonia worked with famed Argentinian chef Pablo Jesús Rivero to create a menu that highlights the local gaucho culture. The chef, whose “Don Julio” was named as the Best Restaurant in Latin America in 2020, designed a range of dishes featuring fresh, local ingredients sourced from small producers. The asado barbeque, which is cooked over a wood fire, must be tasted to be believed. Finish off your meal with a stop at the bar for a glass of wine or a hand-crafted pisco sour.
