Get Here: Chile

The first steps across the 165-foot-long bridge leading to Hosteria Pehoe, the 45-room hotel situated on the inland island pictured here, may feel like launching points, but in reality they're the end of your journey. This planked foot- bridge juts out from the shores of Chile's Lake Pehoe toward cozy comfort, regional cuisine and out-of-this-world views of the surrounding Cuernos del Paine (Horns of Paine) -- the black-rock-tipped peaks for which this national park is named. To reach this point, fly from Santiago, Chile, to Punta Arenas, then drive north through Puerto Natales en route to the Torres del Paine National Park. As you make your way across the park toward Lake Pehoe, notice the transforming foliage -- the low-lying mata barrosa, the tufts of coiron grasses, the exotic orquidea blooms -- and hear the otherworldly calls of roaming guanacos, condors and pumas. At the end of your drive, park in the lot reserved for hotel guests and begin the final leg of your voyage: just one small step -- and one great leap. pehoe.com
