So – you’ve climbed Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa, hiked the mountains surrounding Queenstown, New Zealand, and knocked Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania off your list. Where to next? What can possibly top the scenery of these iconic destinations?
Consider Chilean Patagonia your next destination. Patagonia is a huge region spanning across Chile and Argentina, from the Andes Mountains to the southern tip of South America. The amount of activities available in this region is endless: from water activities, to wildlife viewing, to horseback riding, wine tasting, hiking, biking, fishing, and more. For those with a taste for adventure and a love for the great outdoors, there is no better destination.
While Argentine Patagonia is the most well-known amongst travelers, Chilean Patagonia, in southern Chile, is an up-and-coming destination with just as much to offer, plus the added benefit of being more remote with fewer people visiting each year.
The Singular Patagonia Hotel is, without a doubt, the premier resort in the region. In fact, it recently won 1st place for Best Inn’s and Resorts in South America by Travel + Leisure magazine. The resort is housed in a historical former storage facility built in the early 20th century. Singular kept the building’s past in mind as they transformed it into a modern, eco-friendly resort like no other.
The luxury of the rooms and main facility is only the beginning. The activities provided during your stay demonstrate the very best of Patagonia’s iconic Torres del Paine National Park. Each day guests choose from full- and half-day tours based on activity level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and accompanied by a friendly, experienced, and knowledgeable guide.
Activities include trekking to the base of Torres del Paine mountain, horseback riding to a lagoon, kayaking, cycling, and fly-fishing. One highlight for all visitors is a high speed ride through the Patagonian Fjords, ending with a short hike for a view of the Serrano Glacier.
It’s quite possible that Chilean Patagonia is heaven on earth for those seeking adventure, awe-inspiring scenery, or even just some time to relax in peace to appreciate natural beauty.
