Amity Tours

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. We started up our operations in The Lake & Volcano District (Chile and Argentina) and now we also cover the Atacama Desert and Patagonia. Nowadays, Amity Tours operates tours all over Chile and in most parts of Southern Argentina. With the experience gained since 2003 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 over 30 National Parks from the Atacama Desert to Patagonia, active Bike tours in The Lake and Volcano District and the Wine Region, Conservation tours in private Land Trust and Indigenous Communities, Family Adventure tours in Patagonia, volcano-climbing across The Andes, and Skiing tours on 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.
