Learn More About the Tigre Day Tour – Bike & Kayak Experience
Meeting in Palermo (Santa Fe 3952), we begin our bike tour with a thorough orientation, introducing you to the city, tour specifics, your bicycle, and each other. Pointing our front tire North, we pedal through the beautiful “lung of Buenos Aires,” a 65 hectare public park spaces known as Los Bosques de Palermo. Arriving at our train stop, we board only for a few stops to avoid heavy traffic that’s entering the city.
We get off at the La Lucila station and it’s just a quick pedal to reach the River Plate Coastline. There you’ll capture the jagged city skyline from a distance. Stretched and ready to ride, we enjoy the many beautiful parks that line the river’s edge. This is where we’ll do most of our riding with fewer stops.
We eventually go up a hill so we can ride through the architecturally astounding neighborhoods of San Isidro….
Tigre Puerto de Frutos
Kayak Experience with Lunch
Our tour ends back at our meeting point in Palermo (Plaza Italia) where we recapture the day and suggest some BA must do’s. Lasting approximately 8 hours, we try follow many bike trails and stop around 15 times to drink and learn about Yerba Mate, take photos, eat delicious asado and enjoy a fun, creative and informative tour led by expert bilingual guides.
