Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your way to a centrally-located meeting point to greet your cycling guide for the day. Get fitted out with a bike helmet and bicycle: you’ll use a well-maintained Trek 3900 or Mongoose mountain bike, and bike gloves are available for your use.

Spend the morning pedaling to a “best-of” list of Santiago landmarks, starting with the former home of the poet Pablo Neruda, and La Moneda, Chile’s grand, 18th-century presidential palace. Continue through the bustling Plaza de Armas to see the Santiago Cathedral, Central Market and La Piojera, a beloved local bar that’s been popping corks since 1896.

Visit La Vega Market, then take in the masterpieces at the Chilean National Museum of Fine Arts. After your time at the museum, refuel for an afternoon of riding with lunch at a local restaurant, where you can sample classic Santiago cuisine.

The afternoon is all about parks and neighborhoods, and you’ll take bike paths and park lanes through the Vitacura and Providencia districts on your way to the Metropolitan Park, the city’s largest green space. Keep riding to Bicentennial Park and the Sculpture Park, then make your way back to the original departure point.

This was the highlight of my...

This was the highlight of my Santiago stay.I met my tour guide, I say my because I was the only rider, Jenni at 10am at the predetermined spot. Had all the equipment I needed, a nice Trek mt bike and helmet. What made this day special was that it was National Census Day. Last one was 10 years ago. All of Chile, not just Santiago, closes for the day. Very few cars and less people out and about. Jenni is a very nice person, good rider and guide, with some excellent historical knowledge of Santiago and Chile. We rode at a very comfortable pace and stopped many times for photo ops and info . Our planned lunch stop was cancelled due to census day, but we were lucky enough to find a nice spot for an empanada, We rode 20 miles I would say and the whole experience was a ton of FUN!!..I highly recommend the tour and thank you Jenni for a good day.
