Valdivia

4
Valdivia, southern Chile's main university town, possesses a youthful and independent spirit. Taking great pride in its blend of Spanish and Germanic heritage, the city longed to break away from the Lakes District because of its geographical and cultural differences. It got its wish in 2007, when the city became the capital of Los Rios, the newest Chilean region. Today, the surrounding landscape of forestland offers great scope for an adventurous, nature-filled Valdivia vacation, while the lively downtown area combines colonial charm with a vibrant and energetic contemporary arts scene. Valdivia is in Los Rios Region. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Valdivia trip itinerary using our Chile tour planning website .

Where to stay in Valdivia

Valdivia boasts a range of accommodations befitting a regional capital. The hub of activity has traditionally centered around the Calle-Calle River, with many of the longer-established resorts and hotels located on the water or just a street or two back. That said, the inland areas of town also offer a diverse set of lodgings. Look around Plaza de los Rios for some of the city's trendier boutiques, along with a good number of simple and charming guesthouses.
