Explora Atacama

An exceptional hotel situated in the breathtaking Atacama Desert, near San Pedro de Atacama

The spirit of Explora Atacama

The beautifully stylish Explora Atacama is situated within 17 hectares (42 acres) of pristine grounds in the Ayllu de Larache (initially a community of the ancient Aymara people), near the gateway town of San Pedro de Atacama. Here, enveloped by nature, guests can unwind in one of 50 attractively designed rooms, each with a lovely ensuite bathroom,

A stay at the Explora Atacama is all about reconnecting with the natural and cultural surrounds of the Atacama Desert on a series of truly unforgettable adventures. The hotel offers over 40 activities that can either be undertaken on foot, by bicycle or on horseback and are tailored according to your level of experience and fitness. After a successful day of sightseeing, guests can retreat to one of four interconnected, ambient-temperature pools, as well as a sauna, a steam bath or an open-air Jacuzzi. Mouth-watering Chilean menus are paired with delectable local wines, whilst scrumptious spit-roasted lamb, beef and fish can be savoured at the hotel’s Quincho (barbeque area). The Atacama Desert is renowned for its breathtakingly clear skies, which guests can make the most of in the Explora Atacama’s exclusive observatory.
