Saltos del Huilo-Huilo

Reviewed By Jon M - Saint Cloud, Minnesota

This reminded me of hiking in northern Minnesota. The walk is well lined out with plenty of places to stop alonf the way. My friend that we are with say the water is down. It is the lowest they have ever seen. Take your time and look at it all.

Sistema de Fuertes de Valdivia

Reviewed By GaryTamsitt

An easy drive from Valdivia to Niebla brought us to the ferry to Corral. There we found the Castillo de Corral in a strategic position covering the approach to Valdivia. It was one of 18 locations, including forts at Niebla and on the island of Mancera dating back to the 1600s. In 1820 Lord Cochrane led a daring land attack against the forts which were garrisoned by troops loyal to the Spanish crown. Cochrane's victory at Valdivia was an important step in Chile's fight for independence.

Jardin Botanico de la Universidad Austral de Chile

Reviewed By Jackiegaldames

I can't go to Valdivia and not visit the botanical garden. It’s my favorite place in the city. There's always a good atmosphere, children laughing and playing, old people resting in the benches...
I love trees so sometimes I wish there could be even more information about them, there are some signs that have been removed or have faded away over time. I know that students give tours to visitors but there's no much information about that. But maybe I'm the only tree lunatic that wants to know more xdd
People mostly go to have a relaxing afternoon and have picnics, do yoga or go running. I go to have naps and hug trees :)

Parque Oncol

Reviewed By Cami2011 - Santiago, Chile

A great day for a family outing with easy trails, a great canopy line (for additional cost) with 4 super high and long line, and also good camping sites to stay or have a picnic. Clean bathrooms available as well as basic coffee shop. Would have appreciated that the guides were more expressive and passionate about the place, telling us whta type of vegetarion, birds etc we saw as we did the canopy.

Lago Pirehueico

Reviewed By RCCI - Santiago, Chile

Puerto Fuy at the shore of Lago Pirihueico is a welcoming small town. It is the embarkation/desembarkation port of Lago Pirihueico. You can cross Lago Pirihueico to Puerto Pirihueico in the ferry Hua Hum, reach the border and cross to Argentina through Paso Hua Hum. You can also go to Puerto Pirihueico and return to Puerto Fuy the same day looking at the most marvellous sceneries in the world!

Laguna de los Lotos

Reviewed By Majo E - Buenos Aires, Argentina

We visited this place on our one-day tour around Valdivia. I was amazed at its beauty and calmness. Unfortunately, there weren't many flowers as my visit was off season. However, I managed to take beautiful pictures and enjoy the wonderful surroundings with different kinds of species of trees. For taking pictures, the morning light may be nicer on the lake.

Reserva Punta Curinanco

Reviewed By Rosecrans - Northfield, Minnesota

First off, you don't need a car but can hop on the Expreso a la Costa bus (Avenida Alemania) for a lovely hour's ride along the coast.. At first we weren't quite sure what we were entering, walking through the woods on a narrow path. Then, a mile or so in we came to the ancient trees that make this place so well known. There is something truly magical about this small but mighty forest. But on the way back you come to splendid Lookouts over the ocean, culminating in a truly magnificent peninsula with a 270 degree view of the water. This last segment is quite a hike down but absolutely worth it -- one of the highlights of our Chilean trip.

Its a river walk, the scenery is very pleasant and you get some idea of the city and its surroundings. The wild life is interesting as the sea lions bask all along the area.

Fuerte de Niebla

Reviewed By SeattleDSpar - Seattle, Washington

A visit to this remarkably restored and well-maintained historical site should be de rigeur for all who find themselves in the Valdivia area. Interpretive historical information is of excellent quality and clarity, and the physical setting is nothing short of spectacular. Even more remarkable is the fact that admission is free of charge.

Beatiful view of the Pacific and rivers and an old Spanish fort. It is paid but not expensive (can't remember the fee)
