A MEETING POINT
Our hotels are a meeting point for travelers from all around the world who share a passion for nature, and a place where many unexpected friendships blossom.
Our guides act not only as guides, but also as travel companions for our travelers. They are all young professionals who leave their chosen careers for a couple of years and pursue their passion for the great outdoors, undergoing a rigorous selection process and professional training at the explora School of Guides.
We don’t believe in contemplating from afar, which is why we have been exploration experts for over 20 years, allowing our travelers to interact with our unique natural and cultural surroundings
