The Buenos Aires Bike Tour To the North will take you from the most touristic spots to the most exclusive and private ones. Biking through the city will give a whole new point of view, allowing you to enjoy the city differently, joining sports, discovery, leisure.
After meeting your guide at a central city location, listen to a quick safety briefing and get ready to ride. Once you receive your bike (a comfy beach cruiser) and helmet, you`ll begin your leisurely 7-mile (12-km) ride.
Start your tour at the exclusive Barrio Norte, where you`ll see beautiful homes that belong to aristocratic families and embassies. Soon you`ll reach the neighborhood of Recoleta, recognized by its French style buildings, parks, and outdoor cafes. Ride by the famous Recoleta Cemetery, final resting place of Eva Peron.
Next, you`ll head toward the district of Palermo, Buenos Aires` largest neighborhood. Pedal to Palermo Woods, the city`s largest park, and admire its rose garden with more than 400 rose bushes. See more of the park`s sights, including the Buenos Aires Zoo, the Botánical Garden, Plaza Italia, Galileo Galilei Planetarium and the Spaniard`s Monument.
Throughout your tour, your entertaining and informative guide will tell you fun facts about Buenos Aires` rich history and provide commentary about the sites you`re passing. You`ll also break periodically to stretch your legs and take photos. Your tour will end at Plaza San Martin.
