Why choose this Experience?

At Biking Buenos Aires, we’ve designed a true full-day adventure and get-away from the city. Our competition hasn’t been able to steal this adventure from us yet, so you won’t be able to live anything like it with another company.

On our Tigre Bike & Kayak adventure you’ll have the opportunity to escape from the chaos of the city, and experience Buenos Aires from another angle. Bike through old mansions, cobblestone streets, and the river Delta. Feel the water as you kayak, or go for a swim once we get to the island. Eat a traditional Asado, have a beer, and enjoy the sun.  Live a local adventure, and let go.

A Terrific Tour

Really fun and full day with Ray (the Kiwi). The cycling was safe and we seemed to have gone everywhere in BA. Ray knows the area and streets very well. During it I learnt how to make Mate and some biscuits (yummy). After we paddled kayak along the river and stopped for a huge lunch. I loved these activities and had a really great time with lots of laughter. A must do in BA.

Best way to see Buenos Aires with these guys!

I went with Biking on three trips which made my trip to BA to a success, and mostly because of the guides, Ray, Ricardo and Cole. They were so knowledgeable on BA culture and showed me the mate ritual, where to eat good lunch and ice cream and shared even more tips on email afterwards. We had good talks on the bike, some good laughs and I can not praise them enough for their good company, flexibility, friendly attitude and just being good people !! The trip to the Delta was an especially good way of getting out of the city for a break. Kayaking on the rivers was wonderfully peaceful. I felt really taken care of all three times, Like we were old friends. The trips can be made by almost anyone, as I think they will adjust to whatever is required. I went on two trips around the city and on the Delta trip- all they can all be highly recommended!

For more active tourists in BA

A very enjoyable and relaxing cycle from BA to Tigre for kayaking - it’s around 30km but if you’ve cycled before it won’t be a problem as it's flat terrain. Kayaking and lunch were great, highly recommend the tour.

Cycling Buenos Aires to Tigre and kayaking in the delta

This full day tour was a highlight of our Buenos Aires visit. Jackson was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and friendly. His guidance cycling through the busy part of the city was very welcome and allowed us to feel safe in the short sections of heavy traffic. Overall the cycling route was very pretty and relaxed, following cycling paths in BA and quiet roads all the way to Tigre. Kayaking in the delta was great and sharing a mate made the experience feel very "Argentinian". We appreciated that Jackson shared lots of details about Buenos Aires and Argentina along the route. I highly recommend this tour for any moderately experienced cyclists.

Would Recommend Biking Buenos Aires

A really good way to see the northern suburbs of Buenos Aires as well as Tigre. A really nice day trip to get out of the city, and the bikes and kayaks were both good. I also did the "Heart of the City" tour which was a lot of fun as well. The Tigre tour is more focused on biking/kayaking and less tour, and both tours I took with the company were very good. A fun way to stay active while traveling while getting to see some places you would never go to otherwise!
