Hotel Salto Chico: Enhancements Worth the Wait

Hotel Salto Chico, Chile

Folks, it is springtime in southernmost Chile, and explora Patagonia is ringing in the height of the travel season with a newly renovated look. The renowned South American adventure travel company recently put the finishing touches on an extensive renovation of Hotel Salto Chico, the only lodge located within the heart of Torres del Paine National Park. The extensive project, which saw enhancements and additions, involved closing the iconic property for two months between June and August 2011 – the first time since opening in 1993 that Hotel Salto Chico hasn’t received guests.

“The transformation of Hotel Salto Chico has been a significant event for us, with enhancements made with the pleasure of our guests always front-of-mind. With the Patagonian summer now upon us, we look forward to welcoming new and returning adventurers with the certainty that they’ll like what they find from explora at the southern tip of South American,” said Jesus Parrilla, General Manager of explora Patagonia.

We think it has been well worth the wait. For more information on the renovation of Hotel Salto Chico, or to discover Patagonia with explora, please call explora toll free in the U.S. at 1-866-750-6699, email, or visit the website at
