Itinerary

South Buenos Aires Bike Tour

Explore the south city center of Buenos Aires with this 4-hour cycling tour. Pedal at a comfortable pace through San Telmo, Puerto Madero and La Boca. Listen to engaging commentary from your cycling guide about the history, culture, architecture, food and people of Buenos Aires. Learn about tango and "fútbol", the twin passions of the local citizens, through a visit to 'el Caminito', a colorful pedestrianized street and center for the local arts.

The adventure begins in Plaza de Mayo, the historic square at the center of the city. Head south to San Telmo, the first “barrio” of colonial Buenos Aires, where the cobblestone streets and collection of churches are just the start of its magic and warmth. A true cradle of bohemian culture.

From San Telmo, you'll ride to the modern metropolis of Puerto Madero with it's high rise buildings, chic port side dining and wonderful green spaces. It's easy to understand why it’s some of the most valuable real estate in the city. Pedaling a bit further south, you'll pass by La Bombonera (home of the Boca Juniors football team) on your way to the vibrant community of La Boca, the first port of the city and a must-see Buenos Aires attraction.

Heading to the area best known for its most famous street “Caminito” lined with quaint and colorful houses, you’ll discover two of the most popular expressions of Argentinian culture, tango and football.

Then, turn your wheels back to the city passing through popular Parque Lezama, and end your tour back in San Telmo.

Tips:
Comfortable shoes and clothes are recommended for this activity. Hat and sunblocker too, during the summer season.

The tour goes along bike-lanes 90% of the time, and the terrain is mostly flat, so this excursion is suitable for riders of all levels.

  • Is a bicycle the best way to see Buenos Aires?
    A bike is by far the best way to see Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires is a very flat city with mostly one directional streets. By bicycle you can get to places easily and quickly. You can see more by bike in a few hours than you ever could on foot or by bus!

  • What if I haven’t ridden a bike in years?
    The expression ‘as easy as riding a bike’ was coined for a reason. You will be amazed how quickly cycling comes back to you and you’ll be at ease in no time. Our South and North tours are our easiest tours if you feel like easing your self back into the saddle. There is plenty of time at the beginning of the tour to get used to the bicycle. Please note, unfortunately we do not have time on tours to teach people to ride a bike completely from scratch.
