Discover Patagonia with the Singular Patagonia & Australis
is a region full of unique wildlife and awe-inspiring beauty that cannot be compared to anywhere else in the world. This remote area is a bucket-list adventure that is worth adding to your South America adventure, or venturing back to ensure you don’t miss the picturesque sights.
Below we have listed a few of the reasons why The Singular Patagonia & Australis are perfect for you to discover this enchanting region.
The Singular Patagonia
The Singular Patagonia sits on nearly 100 acres of breath-taking land in Puerto Bories, deep in the heart of Southern Chilean Patagonia. This post-Victorian 1915 Bories Cold Storage plant has had a meticulous 10 year restoration, to create the luxury hotel it is today.
Matching the richness and beauty of the building itself will be that of the dishes emerging from Chef Hernan Basso’s kitchen, further connecting guests to the region’s terrior and heritage. Locally grown ingredients, such as Patagonian hare, lamb, south american king crab, white strawberries, rhubarb, seaweed and Patagonian honey will tempt the palate as Chef Basso re-imagines traditional, regional recipes; fully respectful of the area’s culture and its rich byproducts. To perfectly complement the delectable dishes coming out of the kitchen, you will be able to choose from a variety of wines from each grape-growing valley of Chile.
Spa & Wellness
Surrounded by fjords, glaciers and unparalleled beauty, The Singular Spa will deliver a wellness experience inspired by the word SPA’s origin – Salut Per Aqua (‘health thru water’). Spoil yourself with a day in the 3,000 sq ft eco-SPA further connecting you to nature as organic plants and fruits are used for oil extracts and moisturizers woven into an array of pampering pleasures. The Singular is dedicated to guests’ complete therapeutic well-being as the holistic-focused SPA also features a heated indoor / outdoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room.
Best of both worlds
The Singular experience is indeed singular, a unique blend of the utmost in contemporary luxury combined with access to some of the most untamed territory in the world. Visit nearby attractions like the Milodon Caves and the local town of Puerto Natales where you can interact with locals to get an appreciation for the real Patagonia while having the ability to explore Torres del Paine and discover why it is one of the world’s most extraordinary national parks. At The Singular Patagonia, it is a complete experience, that of the true Patagonia.
Australis Patagonia Cruises
Australis Patagonia Cruises navigate legendary maritime channels of early explorers such as the Strait of Magellan and the Beagle Channel, exploring breathtaking scenery of imposing mountain ranges, majestic glaciers, lush subpolar forests and even reaching the "end of the world" at Cape Horn. Below is a video that will introduce you to the experience you’ll have onboard with Australis.
Whether you’re a dedicated birder or just love viewing wildlife in their natural habitat, Australis cruises are a great way to spot wildlife. From the Magellanic oystercatcher to the Austral parakeet, there are over 360 species of birds in the area, with 40 endemic to Patagonia. Though there is also a chance for elephant seals, orcas, blue whales, humpback whales and more. Australis Patagonia cruises offer unrivalled chances of seeing native wildlife in some of Patagonia’s remotest parts.
While the wildlife will leave you speechless, the combination of unspoiled national parks and looming volcanoes is what makes the fjords and channels of Chile so captivating. Skirting the southern coastline and southernmost tip of the country, the fjords are the least visited of Chile’s incredible landforms. Although a wonderland of groaning glaciers, bobbing icebergs and a wealth of extraordinary flora and fauna, their remoteness make them impossible to visit unless travelling by ship and onboard with Australis is the best way to do it.
