Valdivia, Chile

The City of Valdivia, one of the most beautiful cities in Chile with 135,000 inhabitants, is situated in southern Chile, near the mouth of the Valdivia River. It is near the port of Corral on the Pacific Ocean. The city lies in an area of forests and apple orchards.Founded in 1552 by Pedro de Valdivia, a lieutenant of the Spanish explorer Francisco Pizarro. In 1818 it was the site of a Chilean victory in the wars of independence.
The city has a large German colony founded in the 1850s which put its stamp on the city, transforming it in one of the more important industrial centers in Chile with beer breweries, mills, tanneries, navy (it is a fluvial port), and the first high oven of the country in 1913. It was desolated by an earthquake in 1960 but has been beautifully rebuilt.
During the 2nd and 3rd week of February the "Valdivia week" takes place (you should reserve a hotel in advance), and beside the Calle Calle river that crosses the city, handicraft fairs and the results of the international painting competition "Valdivia and the river" are presented. This extravaganza ends in the final night next to the river, with a parade of boats and fireworks.

There are several islands which can be explored by taking a riverboat cruise. 
Valdivia also has a number of nice small beaches for you to stroll on and enjoy the ocean.
The Valdivia area is great for fly fishing (remember winter holidays in the northern hemisphere means summer holidays here!)
You can visit 3 historic Spanish forts located in strategic places near the mouth of the river, one of the forts is only accessable by boat, the other two by car or riverboat. 
Possible accommodation includes country cabins and farm holidays providing a great starting point for horse riding and long country walks in the peace and quiet offered by this woody area or for those that would like to stay closer to town the Hostal "Entre Rios" is a great place to stay.
This really is a good place to spend a few days while in Chile.
