Tierra Patagonia

A plush Patagonian paradise on the shore of Lake Sarmiento in the Torres del Paine National Park.

Overview

Located within Torres del Paine National Park, along the shore of Lake Sarmiento, and overlooking the mountains, Tierra Patagonia is a peaceful retreat nestled into a wild and untamed part of the world. This ecotourism lodge features 40 rooms and is dedicated to connecting guests to nature while also preserving the unique environment of Patagonia.

Life at the Tierra Patagonia Lodge

Inside Tierra Patagonia, warm lighting, white-washed walls, and softwood tones set the stage for casual luxury. Plush sheepskin rugs, handmade blankets, and local crafts create a welcoming, homey scene within each of the three room categories and pay respect to the region’s culture and history. However, nothing, including the deep-soak bathtubs, will distract you from the mountain and lake views that form the centerpiece of every space within the lodge.

Your room might seem like the ideal spot to relax until you experience the lodge’s spa. The Uma Spa at Tierra Patagonia features an indoor heated pool, with hydro-massage jets, encased in glass walls that let you soak in the scenery in ultimate comfort. The spa also houses an outdoor hot tub, steam room, yoga studio and treatment rooms where a wide range of massages, facials, and scrubs promote wellbeing. After a day of indulgent relaxation or exhilarating adventures, sit down to a delicious meal crafted from locally sourced ingredients.

The lodge’s chef puts a modern, contemporary twist on traditional Chilean cuisine. After your meal, take a seat at the circular bar and order Patagonian beer, a glass of Chilean wine, or the bar’s signature cocktail, a Calafate Sour. Similar to a Pisco Sour, this drink combines pisco with lemon juice, egg whites, and the juice of local Calafate berries. Legend says that whoever eats the blue-black berries is sure to return to Patagonia, so this tasty drink is a must-have.

Excursions from the Hotel Tierra Patagonia, Torres del Paine

Picture yourself trekking across a hanging bridge towards the ice floes of Grey Glacier. If you want a less intense experience, perhaps you would prefer to take a catamaran sail across Gray Lake. Maybe you dream of spending a day birdwatching in hopes of seeing the 120 species, including Magellanic woodpeckers and condors, that call the region home. Is a downhill bike ride through the Laguna Azul area, with llama-like guanacos for company, more your style?

However you prefer to explore Patagonia, and whatever your fitness level, the guides at Tierra Patagonia will help you create a bespoke itinerary. With a wide range of activities, including kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, fly fishing, and scenic voyages, available, there is something to suit every traveler.

Architecture at Tierra Patagonia

In Patagonia, the wind rarely ceases to blow. The constant breeze inspired Tierra Patagonia architect, Cazu Zegers, to create a building that appears to have been carved out of the earth by the wind. Zegers, who was the first female architect awarded the Great Latin America Architecture Prize, used stone embankments to anchor the hotel to the ground.

Above, washed lenga wood panels have a silvery color that appears as if the material was corroded by water. The result is a building that is so well immersed in the landscape it practically disappears. Whether you come to Tierra Patagonia to be surrounded by wilderness while enjoying the comfort of a luxury hotel, to ride horses on a ranch with local gauchos, or to feast on traditional asado barbeque, your time in Patagonia will be the memory of a lifetime.

After breakfast, head out to embark on the Hunter’s Trail, witnessing remnants of Aonikenk culture through cave paintings splayed on the rock walls.

Base of the Towers Hike, or Scenic Journey through Torres del Paine

Today is a sample itinerary that includes a selection of the explorations on offer at Tierra Patagonia. This day is completely customizable.

Option 1: AM - PM: Keen hikers will need to fuel up well this morning, ahead of a full-day trek; Base of the Three Towers. Lasting approximately eight hours in total, the trails themselves are as rewarding as the eventual endpoint, standing at the foot of Las Tres Torres, or the ‘Three Towers’; the perfect place to stop for a picnic lunch and relish this astounding view.

These granite centurions have stood watch over this part of Patagonia for millennia, attracting plenty of outdoor explorers and keen mountaineers in the process. Upon returning to the hotel, a celebratory drink at the bar is in order; as is a well-deserved meal in our restaurant!

Option 2: AM - PM: An alternative for this full-day hike could be a scenic tour by road to some of the national park’s best lookout points; all in one day. There’s no doubt you’ll be amazed by the sharp, unforgiving outline of the Paine Massif’s distinctive ‘horns’, the star of the show here in Patagonia and just as jaw-dropping up close as you would imagine. Be sure to have your camera to hand, as you won’t want to miss a single snapshot of this amazing place.
