Billed as one of the “Ten Great Races in Amazing Places” by National Geographic, the Patagonian International Marathon offers epic views for racers looking for more than just another finish line. Located in the Torres del Paine National Park, racers can relax pre and post race in the stylish Hotel Salto Chico.

The only lodge in its class located at the heart of the National Park, the Chilean luxury travel operator explora’s Hotel Salto Chico sits on the banks of the Salto Chico waterfall with unobstructed views of the unique Paine Massif and the spectacular granite pillars that dominate the skyline of this magnificent national park.

The property will offer special options for travelers entering the Patagonian International Marathon. Racers can take advantage of a 4-night/5-day program from explora Patagonia, including complimentary room upgrade at Hotel Salto Chico; a courtesy massage after the marathon; transfer from the hotel to the starting point in Torres del Paine National Park; and the presence of an explora guide and a van during the race.

Additionally, travelers who combine this program with a second explora destination – Hotel de Larache in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile, Posada de Mike Rapu on Easter Island, or an explora Travesía nomadic journey – receive all the benefits of the explora passport, a recognition program with benefits including rate discounts and room upgrades.

The Patagonia Expedition Race is scheduled for September 23, 2012. For more information please call explora toll-free at 1 (866) 750 6699, email reserve@explora.com, or visit the website at www.explora.com
