Green Hotel facts: The Chilean owners of the Explora hotels were innovative and forward thinking, hiring local staff and guides who go through 3 to 6 months’ training to be qualified. The hotels’ horses are specially bred for either Patagonia or Atacama, and are well cared for; they’re trained by ‘imprint’ and never by force.

The food is sourced locally, and there are solar panels for some heating. At Explora Atacama, they use solar power for heating their pool; they also have water stations for refillable bottles and conservation programs called ‘Wildcats of the Andes.’
