The tourist train “El Valdiviano” is pulled by a steam locomotive over 100 years old and operates every year in January and February on Saturdays and Sundays on its traditional route Valdivia-Antilhue. Until the mid-1980s, the train was used for regular passenger and freight transport. Today, up to 390 passengers can sit on the wide seats of the restored train wagons. This approximately five-hour excursion departs in the late morning from Valdivia. Stopovers are made in Pishuinco and Huellelhue, where passengers can disembark and explore the area’s gastronomy and typical crafts. During this tour, you will remarkably discover both the history and the impressive landscape along the Calle Calle River as well as the gastronomy of the south of Chile.
