Story & Mission
Amity Tours is the leading tour operator of Chile’s Lake and Volcano District based in Pucón, the capital of adventure tourism. Since our creation in 2003, we have operated active travel adventures in Southern Chile (and some parts of Argentina), the Atacama Desert and Patagonia.
When traveling with Amity Tours, you will explore the best hidden corners of the Chilean territory, always accompanied with our friendly & local team of passionate nature lovers. With us, you will…
- Bicycle the back roads and scenic routes of the Lake & Volcano District
- Hike the national parks and reserves near the Andes mountain range
- Bike and hike the driest desert in the World
- Backcountry ski the active volcanoes of Southern Chile & Argentina
- Experience a fun time during our Family Adventure Tours
- Discover the natural and local history during our Conservation Tours
Of course, we spice up all of these great tours with the best local wines and food. In addition, you will learn more about the local flora and fauna, and also share with the local Indigenous communities of the visited areas.
As a company, our commitment is to contribute to the sustainable development of our country, through the practice of “Responsible Tourism”. This implies giving a high degree of importance to the values of local people & traditions. It is reflected in working with professional and local team members, and the carrying out of our excursions in wild protected areas.
In 2019, we started our ambitious Zero Waste Challenge, consisting in measuring and reducing the amount of generated waste during our travel experiences. All our efforts aim to help the protection of our very fragile environment and to maintain the larger amount of income generated by tourist activities in the local area.
