Valdiva and Corral

Rivers and turrets feature prominently in the impressive landscape of Valdivia. It’s the oldest city at these southerly latitudes anywhere in the world, and enjoys a delightfully verdant setting of meadows and woodlands.

Fill your lungs with pure, clean air as you sail down Valdivia’s main river, the Calle-Calle. Enjoy fine seafood at the riverside market and have fun watching sea lions on the promenade. Experience a festival of flavors as you sample craft beers, wild boar, delicious steak tartare and handmade chocolates.

Visit the exciting Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC), built on the site of an historic brewery.

Immerse yourself in the past as you explore the castles and stone fortresses of the Corral peninsula, with its eye-catching landscapes, fascinating history and a rich cultural heritage. Ramble through stunning millennial coastal forests of larch and olivillo. Visit its attractive beaches and traditional fishing coves, and discover the many activities which can be enjoyed all year round.

Set off along the Ocean Highway to charming spots like the fishing coves of Amargos, San Carlos, Los Liles and Huape.
