Founded in 2003, Amity Tours is a family-owned and operated company that was created in response to the immense opportunities for diverse and attractive programs that can be offered in Chile. Ten years ago, we started up our operations in The Lake & Volcano District (Chile and Argentina).
We believed that this enchanting area located between the mountains and the sea is a largely unspoiled zone that had been ignored by tour operators for too long. After ten years, we continue to comply with the highest-quality service standards set world-wide, and that is the reason why our clients keep coming back.
Nowadays, Amity Tours operates tours all over Chile and in most parts of Southern Argentina. With the experience gained during these ten years and the great feedback we have received from our clients, we have now developed attractive excursions along with offering tailor-made programs to fulfill the special interests of our clients.
Likewise, we continue our pledge to preserve the natural beauty of the Southern cone. Accordingly, we have programs exploring the ancestral roots of the country, led by friendly local specialized guides. In this light, we offer hiking tours in the National Parks from the Atacama Desert to Patagonia, bike tours in the wine region and The Lake and Volcano District, fly fishing tours in Patagonia, volcano-climbing across The Andes, and skiing tours on active volcanoes. And of course, we spice up all of these great trips with the best local wines and food, insights into the local flora and fauna, ethnic discoveries, and trips to natural hot springs.
Our commitment as a company is to contribute to the sustainable development of our region through the practice of “Responsible Tourism”. This commitment implies giving a high degree of importance to the values of local people, local traditions, which is reflected in the use of local guides, the selection of lodgings in locally-owned accommodations and the carrying out of our activities in wild protected areas. This is one of our most important values.
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. Both of these factors are of great importance for our communities and for the people that visit us.
