Travel experiences in the driest desert in the world with Amity Tours

We are very proud and happy to announce to our clients that we have started our own operations in the Atacama Desert. We have two hiking trips starting in December 2016 and January 2017.

Whether you like hiking, indigenous cultures or are looking for a Family Adventure, you will discover amazing landscapes and enjoy incredible sunrises and sunsets. Travelling with Amity Tours through the Atacama Desert is an unforgettable experience that will provide a unique opportunity to explore one of the best remote destinations in Chile.

Hiking Northern Chile

Imagine hiking through the Moon Valley located in the Salt Mountain Range. This range forms a natural barrier between the Pacific Ocean and the Atacama Salt Flat. Its statuesque geological formations are interesting to admire. Salt emerges to the surface, covering it with a dry, whitish layer that gives the place a lunar characteristic.  We will hike a gorge, passing through caves and rocky formations that have been sculpted by the water and wind.

What’s more, we will be hiking through an enchanted canyon located at 3.200 meters over the sea level. Originally formed by volcanic eruptions from the Sairecabur Volcano, its surface is now a great heaven for cacti to grow. We will be able to enjoy waterfalls and bird watching while we walk through ancient shepherds trail.  The Atacama Desert is great for star-gazing. Indeed, it has one of the clearest skies in the world due to its low humidity and precipitations. So, after a great hiking day, you can enjoy an amazing astronomic experience. Thus, it is the opportunity to learn about the Southern Hemisphere’s constellations.

On the other hand, the Atacama Desert provides the chance to discover stunning landscapes. Such as Andean Lakes, salt flats, hot springs and geysers located at 4,000 meters over the sea level. At this altitude, we can also appreciate endemic fauna such as Flamingos, Andean Goose, Vicuñas and Vizcachas as well as endemic  flora species.

Finally, we will give you the opportunity to learn about the Likan Antay ancient culture. The indigenous community will teach us about their traditions and daily activities. We will enjoy a typical “atacameño” lunch. Also, we’ll walk through the desert alongside an ancestral caravan with llamas.

Meine Besteigung des aktivsten Vulkans Chiles – Der Vulkan Villarrica

Der schneebedeckte Krater des  Vulkans Villarrica, welcher sich in der Region Araucanía befindet, schimmert 2847 Meter über der Stadt Pucón. Aus seinem Schlund steigt weißer Rauch empor und in seinem tiefsten Inneren brodelt heiße Lava. Der Vulkan Villarrica zählt zu den zehn aktivsten Vulkanen der Welt.
Dieser Vulkan ist schon aus der Ferne beeindruckend, aber noch spektakulärer ist der Blick in die Tiefe des Vulkans und die Aussicht ganz oben auf dem Kraterrand! Die Besteigung des Vulkans ist ein ein einmaliges Erlebnis und ein absolutes Muss für jeden, der das wunderschöne Städtchen Pucón besucht!
Wir- Amity Tours- ermöglichen Ihnen dieses einzigartige Erlebnis!Continue reading

Hiking trails around Pucon – The lake & volcano district

Pucon is one of Chile´s most beautiful tour destinations and the capital of adventure tourism. Surrounded by Mountains, Lakes and active Volcanoes, you will find the most amazing Hiking Trails in the beautiful national parks nearby.

One of these amazing Hiking Trails is at El Cañi Sanctuary. This ancient araucaria forest (monkey puzzle tree) with its beautiful Hiking Trails enables you to expand awareness wide enough to begin to sense mysterious echoes coming down from past millennia. The sanctuary sits at one of the highest elevations in an active volcanic landscape. You can combine this hiking with a visit to the nearby natural hot springs!

Another great Hiking Trail is in the Villarrica Volcano, located in Villarrica National Park. If you are coming to the town of Pucon, you cannot miss out on climbing this beautiful perfect cone shape volcano. The hike up can be a challenge but once you get to the top….you will be amazed by all the beauty and the power of an active crater. At an elevation of 2,847 meters, this active volcano offers great hiking in the winter time where you will find yourself in the middle of powder snow, and in the summer time surrounded by panoramic views of the lakes and other volcanoes.

From the West side of Villarrica Volcano we take you to the East side of this beautiful National Park, heading to its unique glacier. This beautiful Hiking Trail starts with an amazing Araucaria forest. The Hiking Trail continues to the Pichi Llancahue Glacier, finding yourself surrounded by volcanoes! Everywhere you look, there is a volcano! The Quetrupillan Volcano, Lanin Volcano and right behind the glacier, the majestic Villarrica Volcano. It’s not just these amazing volcanoes on sight, the beauty surrounding us, mountains covered with snow on one side, and rocky mountains on the other side, is something you will treasure. After hiking, we usually visit the Geometricas hot springs, our favorite hot springs in Chile!

Another amazing Hiking Trail has to be in Conguillio National Park, one of the most attractive and outstanding parks of the Lake & Volcano District and the first Geopark in Chile. While you visit the park you will witness how the Llaima volcano has permanently shaped the landscape of the area with its eruptions and you’ll have the fantastic opportunity to walk on the lava flows that once came from the heart of the Earth. We’ll also visit the Truful-Truful Canyon and its waterfalls and the pristine Arco Iris (Rainbow) Lake with its clear waters that reflect stunning colors. In this excursion, we hike along the Sierra Nevada trail (3 ½ hours round trip) surrounded by native trees, including ancient monkey-puzzle trees or araucarias and Nothofagus. This hiking trail is one of our favorite ones.

Southeast of Lake Villarrica you will find one of Chile’s most beautiful National Parks, the Huerquehue National Park, located at the foothills of the Andes, 35 km (22 miles) from Pucón. This Hiking Trail starts easy but after a short distance the trail becomes more demanding and sometimes steeper, but is still considered a relatively easy hiking level. Once you get to the first lookout point you will be stunned by the views of the Villarrica Volcano and Tinquilco Lake. Once you reach 1.000 meters above sea level you begin to see the first araucarias trees. Soon we will walk through a mixed forest with many of these trees, considered to be a living fossil and a national monument for their exceptional characteristics. After hiking, we can visit the fantastic Huife Hot Springs and relax in its soothing thermal waters.

These hiking trails are just a few in this beautiful country. For more details, check out the day to day itinerary: HIKING NATIONAL PARKS AROUND PUCON 8 DAYS
