Know More about this tour

Your full-day tour begins with hotel pickup in Ocho Rios, followed by a 2.5-hour drive up to Jamaica’s Blue Mountains. The drive takes you past local outdoor markets and a banana plantation, as well as the historical site of the 17th-century Rio Nuevo battle between the English and Spanish. Along the way, learn interesting facts about Jamaica's past from your guide.

Enjoy a Cajun-spiced brunch and feast on beignets (deep-fried pastry), banana fritters and fruit drinks, as well as world-famous Blue Mountain coffee. After brunch, enjoy a coffee roasting demonstration before you get fitted with a bicycle, helmet and other protective gear, and prepare for a fun, 2.5-hour ride downhill as you coast along the mountainside!

Begin the descent from an impressive 5,600 feet (1,700 meters), take in the breathtaking views of Kingston, Jamaica’s capital. The peak of Blue Mountain – the highest point in the entire Caribbean – rises 7,402 feet (2,250 meters) nearby.
You’ll descend at a leisurely pace (approximately 5 -10 miles per hour), with plenty of designated picture-taking stops en route. (If you choose the non-bike riding option you will be transported down the mountain by bus, making the same photo stops as the riders.)

As you ride down, soak up views of the dramatic tropical forest with its pristine streams and misty slopes, home to the Giant Swallowtail Butterfly and a variety of Jamaican birds, wildflowers and unique plants, including the world’s smallest orchids.

After stopping for a late lunch, conclude your tour with a swim at a pristine, secluded waterfall before the return drive back to your hotel.

  • A fantsiic day out which I would recommend everyone to do. It is along drive to get ther but you see some more of Jamaica and the driver gives a good commentary. We really enjoyed the bikes and it is not difficult at all. The scenery is beautiful. Take bug spay and some crayons etc for the school.

  • The Blue Mountains IS stunning the views and wildlife are breathtaking

    PROS:

    We were picked up on time. The bus journey will take a few hours, the good thing it has AC and the driver Markie Markie will keep you informed and you get to see the local sights that you don't see in the hotel, plus jokes and riddles the entire trip up the mountain. The bus will take you up to 7,000 feet and then you cycle down.

    We stopped for brunch the food was great and delicious. We were then introduced to the coffee that was produced there and this was available for purchase in their gift shop.
    There is a large selection of bikes to choose from and the guides help you chose and make adjustments if required, we were given knee and elbow pads and a helmet, safety is paramount.

    The roads in Jamaica aren't smooth mostly ones this remote, so the guide would regularly shout 'pot hole' and we would, in turn, shout it back up the single line we were cycling in. It was all good JAMAICAN fun.

    Lunch is at the same stop off where we had brunch earlier, and the Jerk chicken and rice is really great and tasty. We also got to stop off to learn about the wildlife there and well as learn about which plants you could find to use as natural remedies. Then we continued downhill further on the bikes.

    The tour ended with a dip in a cool waterfall where the locals will assist you and sell you drink and finally a 'beer drinking contest'. You will need money to tip these guys that help you in the waterfall. They are very kind and helpful. Also brought a bag of beautiful mandarins from a local. This is the time the bike guides one only will collect for all to tip them.

    I would definitely recommend FANTASTIC DAY!

    CONS:

    1.         Web site states over 60 years old you cannot ride Seriously look at my photo. I am 60 years old female and I was up the front riding as fast and good as anyone else. I would hope that I could still be riding in 20 years time or more. Found this offensive.
    2.        Brunch and lunch and they were really great were too close together time wise. We were starving for hours after we got on the bus and then were still full from Brunch to eat an early lunch. Dont know who you can change this as the venue was great. Maybe Brunch served at your office area?
    3.        The guide on the bike wearing the fluoro vest he was the only one was speeding past and weaving in and out and past rides which I though was very dangerous if a rider turned their wheel slightly. He was showing off, but was inappropriate riding like this with other riders not familiar with the bikes or roads. Idiot!

  • Not quit what I expected but still it was enjoyable.

  • A really great day traveling down the mountain, a lot is packed into the day so each stop is very rushed but I would definitely recommend.

  • We were very pleased with this excursion and told everyone about it when we got back to the resort. We've visited Jamaica 3 times and this was the first time that I felt we saw the non-resort Jamaica. The mountains were just beautiful and the bike ride was exhilarating while feeling completely safe. We were worried it would be a little too much being on a bike for over 2 hours but neither one of us ever felt uncomfortable. I highly recommend this excursion.

  • Tour was nice just a bit rushed during lunch and at the water fall, needed more time or be told by the guides current time and how long we had

  • it was great tour with awesome guides.
    more extrimy than what we thought!

  • An excellent experience!

  • Great fun. Old skool bikes but that made the downhill experience more exhilirating!

  • Six or seven hours on a bus, up rough mountain roads, down hill on beach bikes that were not safe at all. Brunch and lunch were served two hours apart - so skip one. We saw a lot of the country that is for sure - but so not worth the time or money
