Although Remota has the highest standards of service and comfort, the hotel doesn’t define itself by stars. The concept of luxury for us is much more noble and generous as incorporates the rich environment where the property is located. All of Remota’s buildings are in perfect harmony with the environment and the local culture, from its well-recognised sustainable architecture, to the way that all the more than 30 excursions –offered daily – are restructured and created so that they cause minimum impact to the local ecosystem.
After being established in Patagonia for over eight years, we have a portfolio of over 30 tours and excursions to the most representatives areas of the region. This way our guests can experience first hand, everyday, the natural and cultural beauty of Torres del Paine National Park – World Heritage Site as well as World Biosphere Reserve; and further afield to valleys, mountains, lakes, glaciers, rivers and forests.
Tours can be done by vehicle (4×4), horseback, bicycle, or walking, sailing the fjords; it all depends on the guests preference and the area they would like to visit.
Adventure Program Options
We leave Remota to head south of Ultima Esperanza province and enter into “Los Rebaños” estancia after 45 minutes of driving. Once there, you can choose with the guide different paths and interior dirt roads of the estancia that take us through ancient forests of lenga and other species full of birds during summer and spring season.
We will travel by van just 30 minutes from the Hotel to Puerto Consuelo, where we will paddle to the end of the fjord. Then we will take a break to have a well-deserved and delicious snack before paddling back to Puerto Prat, another relevant place in the history of Puerto Natales at the Eberhard fjord. Our adventure comes to an end here and then we return to the hotel.
Seeing the forest and the life of a place from a different point of view is one of the advantages of this excursion. Climbing to the top of a wall with the support of professional guides and being able to observe valleys, forests, lakes, mountains and glaciers from the top of a climbing route is a unique opportunity in Patagonia. It doesn’t matter if you are not experienced in rock climbing. Our guides will lead you to the best option according to your experience.
After an hour and a half trip by van we will arrive at Cerro Paine. From there we will start hiking. To reach the Ascencio Valley you will climb to the Paso de los Vientos (Pass of the Wind) to get an amazing view of the pampa, lakes, and Ascencio valley. After that we will retrace the valley, crossing an old Lenga Forest to reach the beginning of a glacial moraine which we will start climbing step by step until we reach the Base Towers. If weather conditions permit you will have a great view of the towers. This without a doubt represents a challenge to anyone that likes hiking.
The summits of Patagonia are characterized by being technical and having low altitudes compared to the rest of the country. Cerro Tenerife is one of those that offers a unique opportunity to experience the Patagonian landscape. Mountain guides will help you complete this challenging excursion for those of you who feel the need to get out in the wild.
