Blue Mountain Downhill Bike Tour with Transport from Ocho Rios

Stop for a swim at a watefall!

Following pickup at your Ocho Rios hotel, board your comfortable vehicle for the 2.5-hour drive into Jamaica's beautiful Blue Mountains. Along the way, pass a banana plantation and local outdoor bazaars. Your guide will point out the site where the Spanish fought the English in the Rio Nuevo Battle during the 17th century. 

Stop at the Blue Mountain Cafe for a brunch of banana fritters, beignets, and local fruit juice. Sip the world-famous Blue Mountain coffee, then watch a coffee-roasting demonstration to see how the experts here make coffee from berry to cup. 

After an orientation and safety briefing, get fitted with a helmet, knee and elbow pads and a bicycle.

The biking portion of the tour starts from 5,600 feet (1,700 meters) and descends at a relaxed pace. Make several stops for photo opportunities and scenic lookouts.

Keep an eye out for the native Giant Swallowtail Butterfly, which inhabits the dense tropical forest and misty slopes of the Blue Mountains. Your guide will point out local wildflowers and bird life, as well as the world's smallest variety of orchid. 

Stop for a late lunch, then cool off with a dip in a pool at the foot of a secluded waterfall. Make the drive back to Ocho Rios for drop-off at your hotel.

Amazing! Fantastic scenery, brilliant guides, good food. Drive to get there was great, good to see a bit of Jamaica.. The views all the way down were stunning, nice and chilled able to stop wherever. Bikes easy to ride, back-pedalling to brake. No effort required. Waterfall at the end was lovely

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.

This trip was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. It was nice to get off the resort and see some of the island. The driver was friendly and knowledgeable. Swimming in a waterfalls was a refreshing way to finish the day's activities. We were a party of four and I saved $80 by booking with viator.

Great value for a wonderful day. Views amazing. Only negative comments are the bus was cramped - my son and I both sat on seats above the wheel which meant we couldn't put our legs down on the 2 hour trip. The bikes weren't in the best in conditions. But the experience was worth it!
