Description

Get some fresh air and see Santiago and its number one attraction, San Cristobal Hill on this 3-hour private mountain bike tour. Ride up to the hill top or choose to ride up with the new Cable Car. Follow the route to the top to take in panoramic views over the capital city while learning interesting facts about the city and Chilean culture.

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.
