North Buenos Aires Bike Tour
From US$40.00

Discover the beauty of Buenos Aires on this scenic bike tour. Begin in quaint San Telmo, and ride on to see modern Puerto Madero, the iconic Floralis Genérica sculpture, trendy Palermo, and elegant Recoleta with its famous cemetery. Learn about national history as you visit the Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada, and other buildings in the city’s main square. This 4-hour ride provides a great overview of Buenos Aires.

What to Expect

After picking up the bikes from the shop in San Telmo, a 12.5 mile (20 km) bike ride is waiting for you. The first area you will see biking is Puerto Madero. Enjoy the ride through the newest and most quiet neighborhood of Buenos Aires. The first stop will be at Puente de la Mujer (Woman´s Bridge), one of Buenos Aires´s most iconic structures, at the antique docks.

Continuing the bike ride to the neighborhood of Retiro, visiting San Martin square and the Monumental Tower which will be the next few stops.

Going on cycle lane on Libertador Avenue, you will get to the metal flower Floralis Genérica, close to the faculty of law. Continuing on, you will arrive at the neighborhood of Palermo, the greenest area of Buenos Aires. The stop there will be the rose garden El Rosedal at one of the lakes of Palermo.

You keep on cycling and arrive to Recoleta neighborhood, with the famous Recoleta cemetery. At this stop you will have a 15 minutes break which you can use to enter into the cemetery and visit Eva Peron´s tomb and also the church Iglesia del Pilar next door.

Leaving Recoleta you will head to the main square of Buenos Aires "Plaza de Mayo" with the government house "Casa Rosada". Other importing buildings surrounding that square are the cathedral and "El Cabildo" which is the antique government house. Finally you will learn about the history of the mothers of Plaza de Mayo.

After a 4 hour amazing bike ride, you will return to the office in San Telmo.

Buenos Aires is flat, with lots to see and perfect for sightseeing on a bike. Sadly, I can't recommend this bicycle rental shop. I would suggest people keep well away from it. I visited the store with three of my nephews with plans to rent...More
