What You Can Expect

Blue Mountain Downhill Bike Tour with Transport from Ocho Rios

Stop for a swim at a watefall!

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

best excursion I went on in Jamaica, well worth the money and the staff was very helpful and informative.
best coffee you will ever drink, but the bikes could be upgraded little.

The land of leaves and water. This was a sensational tour promoting the breath taking vistas of the The Blue Mountain...just beautiful. It was very well organised from pick up to drop off. We had a fantastic tour guide who was very safety conscious, fun and knowledgable about some of the plant life. The food was fantastic - my girlfriend was worried that she'd be hungry during the tour as we had to skip breakfast but we were fed twice and the food was lovely. The bikes are designed to be quite slow so those of you who are hoping for serious mountain biking action should be advised that these bikes are back-pedal breaks and it's a relaxed glide down the mountain side. The reason for this is that the tiny road is not one way and there is no way of seeing traffic as it is coming up the mountain. The mountain side is a sheer drop and not protected by fence. For this reason, there is a car that rides up front about 5 minutes a head of the cycling party (you can't see it) - that radios the lead cycler when there is traffic coming up the mountain. I felt safe the whole time.

Towards the end of the trip we were taken to a secluded waterfall - we swam in it and watched some of the locals diving from great heights. This was a sensational tour, lots of fun and very chilled out. As with all if these tours I would advise you to bring a little cash with you to tip the driver, tour guide and also (if you decide to swim in the waterfall) one of the waterfall guides. We very foolishly left our wallets at the hotel and were really embarrassed that we couldn't tip. They were all very cool about it but I'd encourage anyone who goes on these tours to give something. These guys are all consummate professionals. From Ocho Rios, this was about one hour and 20 or so in the taxi - not too long and there is enough scenery to keep you occupied and one pit stop. From Negril, it would take you around 3 and a half hours by the time everyone is picked up to get there. An excellent trip.
