A mixture of sightseeing, cycling, kayaking and relaxation in the sun, the is a great way to see the more scenic and lesser known suburbs of Buenos Aires and play around in the water for the day!
Less than an hour away from the city of Buenos Aires, a wonderful gateway into nature is found – Tigre and the Paraná River delta area. We offer a full-day bike trip that includes a delta kayaking excursion. The delta area and the northern suburbs of Buenos Aires offer a cool combination of both sport and culture in a beautiful tour setting.
The region is easily accessed by train – part of the way, – and then by bike through the northern suburbs, arguably the nicest area of all of Buenos Aires. The final destination, Tigre and its nearby islands, is definitely worth the journey to take one of the most fascinating Buenos Aires sightseeing tours available.
Biking and kayaking are two sporting activities that complement each other perfectly for an active tour. This cycling tour is a perfect way to get some exercise and get around one of the most interesting areas in the Buenos Aires province. The town of Tigre and the islands of the Paraná River are an oasis of natural landscapes and beautiful scenery unparalleled by other Buenos Aires sightseeing tours.
