Know More about this tour

Start your tour close to Metropolitan Park entrance (Pedro de Valdivia) at 10 am for morning departures and 3 pm for afternoon departures. Bike through the Pedro de Valdivia Norte neighborhood and arrive in Metropolitan Park for a quick warm-up exercise, including instructions on the correct use and ride of the mountain bikes. The tour includes a 1 hour approx. bike ride up to San Cristobal hill, or optionally to ride up with the Cable Car to the hill top.

Bike uphill toward San Cristobal's hilltop, starting at 1,706 feet (520 meters) and reaching a summit of 2,887 feet (880 meters). This point allows a full 360-degree view over Santiago. Every weekend hundreds of Santiaguinos bike up this renowned hill, which offers fantastic views and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan city life.

At the top, climb up to the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception statue, or enjoy a delicious mote con huesillos (traditional Chilean beverage) and empanadas (savory Chilean pasties) at your own expense. Descend downhill toward the Pedro de Valdivia's side of the park entrance and return to the starting point through the principal parks of the city.

    Excellent bike tour and relaxed cable car ride up offering the best views of the city!
    I took this tour together with my family from Japan during their visit in Santiago.
    Of all the tours I saw on Viator and TripAdvisor, this seemed like the most entertaining and personalized. Our guide was knowledgeable and gave us useful information about the city and what places to visit after the tour.
    The bike ride down was definitely unforgettable where we could see great views of both sizes of the city. The bikes and the gear seemed to be really well maintained.
    Thank you Huaso Tours for this great experience!

    This was a great tour! Jenni was a knowledgable guide and she really customized the tour for me. I loved taking the cable car to the top of San Cristobal Hill, enjoyed riding around the park and the city, and learned a lot about the city from Jenni. It was a lovely tour! We ended up clocking 18.5 miles, and it was totally custom to my comfort, fitness level, and what I wanted to see in the city/park. Well done, Jenni!
