    Welcome to Uruguay!

    Your guides will greet you in Colonia de Sacramento following a ferry transfer from Buenos Aires, then it’s off to the Historic Quarter.

We’ll make our way towards the Portón de Campo to enjoy a light lunch by the Rio de la Plata, followed by a bike fitting and safety briefing. Our first ride heads towards Anchorena Park, and we’ll enjoy panoramic views of the broad Uruguayan countryside as we pedal our mountain bikes along quiet country roads. This afternoon, transfer by van to the hotel and spend the rest of your day relaxing by the pool or exploring the beautiful grounds. Dinner is served at the hotel’s restaurant as the brilliant sun sets over the Río de la Plata.
