Bike tours in Lima these days offer a wide array of choices for all tastes and there are certain experiences that are ´must do´ because they are truly exceptional. Here we give our list of the top 5 bike tours in Lima that are sure to cater to every traveler.
A gentle tour around Miraflores and San Isidro neighborhoods, allowing you to get to know places that contrast dramatically within the metropolis; like the prehispanic truncated pyramid Huaca Pucllana or the former olive plantation that nowadays is considered one of the most beautiful parks in Lima. How about a sweet treat and a refreshing drink to get you ready for the next journey? The tour couldn´t end without cruising the Arequipa avenue, the main cycleway in town, and having a stunning view of the ocean.
This tour can be taken either in the morning or in the afternoon and takes about 3 hours.
A classic and relaxed tour through the most tranquil and attractive neighborhoods, in search of the ancient “Huacas” (prehispanic pyramids) of Miraflores and San Isidro that still stand proud through the ages. The cherry on top comes from a yoga session at the end of the tour at the unbeatable El Olivar park.
Take only 3 hours to do this and you won’t stray far from the downtown. In the end, you will be in a relaxed and happy mood to go about the rest of your plans.
To many, this is the perfect combination of physical activity, delicious flavors, and incredible sights. The idea is to visit spots along with the city (Surquillo – San Isidro – Miraflores – Barranco) to get carefully selected bites from a variety of food establishments. This tour offers an out-of-the-ordinary tasting experience among the almost infinite array of dishes and preparations that take place in Lima, the primero gastronomic destination in Latin America.
The route can vary depending on if it’s a weekday or weekend and it has a duration of 3 hours. It is possible to adapt the tasting to almost all food restrictions of customers.
Side by side
A tour that shows the varied influences in architecture that can be seen in the city, as you will bike across several iconic neighborhoods and stop at off-the-beaten-path places for most foreign visitors. Many attractions will be seen on the way as well as at the beautiful colonial downtown. A great way to orient yourself within the city.
Approximate 7 hours will be needed to complete the tour, in which the participants must feel comfortable riding the bike in a busy city like Lima.
Art in Barranco
A brand new tour that takes you to a trendy museum of art in the most vibrant neighborhood, Barranco. Street art will be all around you and the grand finale will come with a yoga session facing the ocean.
After these 3 hours, you will have earned a greater appreciation for the arts through the hippest parts of the city.
We always recommend having a light breakfast or at least a sufficient meal before taking any of the tours, despite none of them representing a major physical effort.
Also, remember to take with you your preferred sunblock as Lima is a city with high UV radiation even during winter. Mats are included in the yogi-tours.
