A trip to the heart of Patagonia:
Patagonia, which encompasses the southernmost parts of Chile and Argentina, is known worldwide as one of the most beautiful, unspoiled and remote places on the planet. This photo is the Explora resort in Chilean Patagonia, north of Punta Arenas in the Torres del Paine National Park . The rooms either overlook the Paine Massif mountains, which originated 12 million years ago, or the Salto Chico waterfall. And from the hotel, you can go horseback riding in the mountains, hike through forests, and climb the glaciers of the South Icefields of Paine Massif. Plus, the hotel has a spa. What more could anyone want?
