What to do at Explora El Chalten?

Lying in the heart of Southern Patagonia and bordering four unique territories, days at Explora are focused on outdoor expeditions and experiences. 

Set off from the lodge through forests and across rivers to discover the natural lagoons, sky-high peaks and the rich wildlife of the Los Huemules Reserve. Hike through the Los Glaciares National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site, and be awed by the spectacular Perito Moreno Glacier. If weather allows, organise an expedition across the Southern Ice Field, considered one of the world’s most remote places.

Explora’s team of experienced guides help guests choose from the countless treks, rock climbs and guided trips, depending on their preferences and skills. In the evening, the lodge is a cosy haven to rest and refuel for the next day’s exploration.

Map & location

Located 17 kilometres from the town of El Chalten in the Electric Valley. This Explora lodge sits on the north bank of the Eléctrico River in the heart of the Los Huemules Reserve, approximately three and a half hours from El Calafate Airport.
