Tour Itinerary

5-9 day itinerary options available

Punta Arenas, Chile

Day 1: Torres del Paine National Park (Itinerary Length Varies)

Nights 1 to 9: Hotel Salto Chico

Hotel Salto Chico is located right at the heart of the extraordinary Torres del Paine National Park in central Patagonia. The varied and untouched landscapes of this area led UNESCO to declare it a biosphere reserve. Opened in 1993 on the banks of the Salto Chico waterfall, it affords an excellent view of the unique Paine Massif and two of the three impressive “torres,” or towers, which give the park its name. The lodge borrows certain organic forms from the landscape itself, designed to create a dialogue with the environment, putting its visitors in touch with the sublimity of the surroundings.

A few more reasons why you've gotta go…

  • 1. Turns out Patagonia wasn’t named after a cool outdoor clothing company - the explorer Magellan named the region after the native people there. He used the word Patagón, or giant, to describe the group, who were an average height of about 6 feet tall, much taller than the Europeans of the time.
  • 2. People have been in Patagonia longer than you might think. Humans have inhabited Patagonia since 10,000 BCE, if not longer, and traces of past settlements can be found across the region.
  • 3. The Patagonian region of Santa Cruz, in Argentina, is home to a 52-square mile petrified forest. The forest grew 150 million years ago, during the Jurassic period, and was later buried under volcanic eruptions at the beginning of the Cretaceous Period, when the Andes began formation.
