Bike tour of Old Santiago

Cycling tour

Get under the skin of Santiago by exploring its most atmospheric neighbourhoods by bike.

On a leisurely bike tour through the quiet back streets of Santiago’s chic old barrios, you can really get a feel for the Chilean capital as you breathe in its sights and sounds and uncover its hidden corners.

The tour starts in downtown Santiago, cycling along historic streets lined with stately palm trees, before pedalling to the Plaza Brasil, the impressive Central Train Station and the presidential palace of La Moneda. Finally you’ll reach the elegant and bohemian old quarter of Lastarria, a great place to leave the bike behind and be tempted into a shaded outdoor café or simply continue exploring on foot.
