Small-Group Ultimate Bike Tour from Rio de Janeiro
From US$94.55
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
Cycle through the Old City of Rio and the South Zone on this 7-hour biking tour. With your cycling guide and small group of 10 people or fewer, set out for the city's popular beaches, Ipanema and Copacabana. Continue through the neighborhood of Lapa, home to many examples of colonial architecture. Get views of Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, the Selarón Steps and the Christ the Redeemer Statue as you cycle through some of Rio's vibrant neighborhoods. A traditional Brazilian lunch and all biking equipment is included.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in the Copacabana neighborhood (Avenida Nossa Senhora de Copacabana 1085) at 9am and get equipped with your bike and helmet. The group is limited to 10 people, to ensure personalized attention from your guide.
Begin with a tour of the South Zone, including the famous beaches like Copacabana and Ipanema. After the waterfront areas, head north to cultural neighborhoods like Botafogo, Urca, Gloria, and Flamengo. As you walk the streets of these neighborhoods, your guide tells tales and gives background history. Next, move on to the old city center where you will stop at the bohemian district of Lapa.
Continue on to Rio's center and stop in Cinelandia Square, which will transport you back to Rio´s colonial past. Visit the famous mosaic steps, Escadaria Selarón, and get acquainted with a different, colorful side of the Rio. After, enjoy a traditional Brazilian lunch at a nearby restaurant. The last stretch of the cycling tour passes by the beautiful lake, officially named Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, encircled by hills covered in Atlantic rain forest.
The tour is about 7 hours total and ends back at the meeting point in Copacabana.
