Biobío Valley

The Río Biobío flows northwest from the Andes to reach the sea near Concepción. At 407 km, it is the second longest river in Chile. Its more important tributaries include the ríos Laja, Duqueco and Renaico. Apart from Concepción and Talcahuano on the coast, the valley includes several other important cities, notably Los Angeles. This is the southernmost end of the Central Valley, and while you will find grapes and other Mediterranean fruit being cultivated, there are also hints of what the Lake District has to offer to the south, with forests of araucaria and snow-capped volcanos inland.
