Bike tours in Lima these days are a wide array of choices for all tastes, notwithstanding there are certain experiences we can not let go unnoticed because they are truly exceptional. Here we give our list of top 5 bike tours in Lima in no particular order.
A paused tour along Miraflores and San Isidro neighborhoods to get to know places as contrasting as possible within the metropolis; like the prehispanic truncated pyramid Huaca Pucllana and the former olive plantation that nowadays is one of the most beautiful parks in Lima. How about a sweet treat and a refreshing drink for getting an impulse? The tour does not end without cruising the Arequipa avenue, the main cycleway in town or without having a 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 along the most tranquil and attractive neighborhoods, in search of the millenary huacas (prehispanic pyramids) of Miraflores and San Isidro that still stand despite the ages and modernity. The cherry atop the pie comes with the yoga session prepared to end the tour at the unbeatable El Olivar park.
Take only 3 hours to do this and you won’t get far from the downtown, at the end you will be in your best mood to keep up with your rest of the day plans.
To many, this is the perfect combination of physical activity, tasting, and tourism. The idea is to visit various spots along the city (Surquillo – San Isidro – Miraflores – Barranco) to get bites of varied and specially selected food establishments, that offer an out of the ordinary tasting experience among the almost infinite array of dishes and preparations that take place in Lima, the prime 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.
A tour that shows the varied influences in architecture that can be seen in the city, as you will get across several iconic neighborhoods and stop at not so usual places for foreign visitors. Many attractions will be seen in the way in and back as well as at the colonial downtown, while you get used to orient yourself within the city.
An approximate of 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, as Barranco is. Street art will be all around and the grand finale will come with a yoga session facing the ocean.
After these 3 hours you will become into what it is a bike-yogi with taste for the art.
It’s been hard to come up with a list of just 5 bike tours in Lima as the options are many. This is something you can discuss with your travel designer as a bespoke solution to any request is our specialty.
We always recommend to have a light breakfast or at least a sufficient meal before taking any of the tours, despite none of them represent a major physical effort. (Maybe only the gastronomic tour is an exception to this recommendation).
Also, remember to take with you your preferred sunblock as Lima is a city with a high UV radiation even during winter. Mats are included in the yogi-tours.
