<map lat=-38.233 lng=-72.333 zoom=13 view=2 float=right/> Victoria is a town in Chile in the Araucania region. It is close to Ruta 5 and you will probably want to go to Argentina. There is not a lot of traffic, but if you like to walk, it's great. The landscapes are varying quickly, when getting the short rides from locals. 20 km before the border there is the Aduana. Make sure to quickly get your tramite done and ask around. It's best to get a long ride, since on the Argentinian side of the border hitchhiking will be much more difficult. Beware of the cold, if you're sitting in a pick up truck. There is 4,5 km long tunnel, and it's pretty cold, even in summer.
