Awasi vice Explora vice Tierra Patagonia

I am planning a trip for next January. I know that Tierra and Awasi are outside of the park. Even so, could anyone provide advice on the type, number, or nature of the hiking excursions that are possible from the different lodges. Also, which, if any, operate in areas impacted by the fire of a few years ago? Thank you.

Dont the hotels advertise their treks?

I doubt you will notice much the impact of the fire.

The park boundary is kind of not really a big deal as the park is enormous, all these lodges are essentially at the park. Explora is inside the park boundary and in the heart of the park.

If you have ever been to Yosemite, think of Explora as being like the Awahnee. With other options very close to the valley but not right in the thick of the tourist crowd.

Biggest difference is that Awasi is the only of these properties that provides you with a private guide and vehicle during your stay so you can do what you what, when you want. Tierra and Explora all operate on shared group excursions, offering a few to choose from each day and you are with other hotel guests in a van. Awasi you choose what you want and have your own private guide and 4x4 vehicle.

Prices are fairly similar between Awasi and Explora, Tierra is less expensive.

They are all great properties.
