Accommodations
Patagonia—Tierra Patagonia's ALL-INCLUSIVE Adventure & Spa Hotel
UMA SPA & WELLNESS CENTER
The Torres del Paine Massif’s silhouette serves as a backdrop for the Uma Spa at the Tierra Patagonia resort hotel. The highlight of Uma Spa is the heated, indoor pool, complete with hydro-massage and water jets, all encased in a glass-paneled sanctuary, offering views of the wild surroundings. It’s not unusual to spot Patagonian wildlife from here either. The spa circuit incorporates various temperatures and spaces for relaxation or to revitalize, including a pool, steam room, and soothing relaxation spaces. Outside, the open-air whirlpool tub offers the chance to soak in warm waters, while taking in views of Torres Del Paine and perhaps even spotting a guanaco or ñandú which has wandered up to the lodge. Enter a zen-like state in the treatment rooms, with aromatherapy oils, peaceful sounds and soft lighting. The wellness space includes a yoga studio and relaxation room clad in warm, locally sourced wood and stone, while treatments and therapies use all-natural ingredients. Take your pick from an extensive list of facials, massages, body wraps, scrubs and alternative therapies, designed to open up your ‘prana’, or ‘life force’, promoting positive thoughts and wellbeing.
LOUNGE & BAR
Relax and reflect on your day around the fire with a locally crafted cocktail or a glass of Chilean wine while taking in the views of the famous Torres del Paine Towers. The lounge is also a perfect place to get to know and connect with your fellow Olivians!
READING ROOM Enjoy the tranquil space of the reading room encased in locally sourced wood for the extra Patagonia feel. Read your favorite book in one of the swinging pod chairs or just enjoy the peace of gazing out over Lake Sarmiento through the floor to ceiling windows.
TIERRA PATAGONIA SHOP Peruse the shop for that perfect souvenir! The boutique is outfitted with crafts, sundries and outdoor gear from gloves to coats in case you forgot something, are looking for something new, or would like a gift to take home to friends and family.
DINING
Having spent the day exploring the rugged wilderness of Patagonia, there is no feeling quite like returning home to a warm meal, great service and a top-notch view to match. This Patagonian cuisine is an irresistible mix of hearty stews, slow-cooked soups and tasty dishes, sourced from the nearby estancias surrounding the lodge. The contemporary approach to both cooking techniques and the ingredients used result in a broad, varied menu suitable for all tastes, preferences and diets. The onsite chef prides himself on serving up sophisticated dishes, akin to those found in top-notch city center restaurants which, in this entirely remote location, is all the more indulgent.

This trip requires a moderate to high level of mobility, as the hotel has no elevators and is spread out so all of the rooms have a view. Wheelchairs and scooters cannot be accommodated in the vans used on excursions as they do not have lifts or places to store them. The excursions themselves are quite physical with offerings like hiking, biking, horseback riding, etc. However, there are a few scenic drives and walks that are considered 'easy.' If you do have limited mobility, you are required to travel with someone who can assist you.
