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. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Valdivia and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
