In most of our hiking tours, we get to experience and see how the Mapuche live and who they are. The Mapuche are the indigenous people of south-central Chile and southwestern Argentina. They share a common social, religious and economic structure as well as their own language called Mapundungun. This group of people makes up about 4% of the Chilean population and they are particularly concentrated in the Araucania Region, the place where most of our Bike Tours, Hiking Tours and Ski tours in Chile take place.
Nevados de Chillán Ski Resort ( Nevados de Chillán Volcano)
This year with Amity Tours, we will be skiing in this lovely ski center, a place where if you are traveling all the way down south to Chile, you have to ski here! This place is located at 1,530 meters above sea level, in the Bio Bio region.
The ski area of 10,000 hectares has 33 runs, 9 lifts, and one of the longest runs of 6.5 km. We will be cat skiing, off-piste skiing, and even try out the snowmobiles this place has to offer. After a long day of skiing, this ski center has Hot Springs! It has 9 pools of this incredible thermal water.
The Villarrica Lake is one of the most amazing lakes you will see on our Road Cycling Tours and from the top of a volcano in our Ski Tours. It is so big that when you are on the shore whether it’s in Villarrica or in the Pucon side, it looks like the ocean.
This beautiful lake is also known as Mallolafquen in Mapuche language (the indigenous people of the area) and in its pre-historic days it was a ¨creataceous lake¨.
