La Bicicleta Verde – Vision
Our main goal is for La Bicicleta Verde to become Chile’s #1 Green Tourism Company by connecting you with the Chile we love, thus creating life-time memories and improving the world with one bike-ride at a time. We want to change people’s perspective of the country and the cities where we work, Valparaíso and Santiago. We also want to transform the capital city of Chile from a place that is considered a ‘passing through’ city to what we consider THE destination.
La Bicicleta Verde – Mission
La Bicicleta Verde is a green tourism company with our prime aim to show you the Chile that we love so much. We are an eco conscious company who seeks to spread the importance of bike riding in Chile and in turn, reduce the carbon footprints.
We have both Spanish and English-speaking guides, attending to your needs and wishes. 90% of our employees are Chilean, who possess a perfect eye for Chile, Santiago and Valparaíso. Whether you are a backpacker doing a soul-searching journey, a family looking for special quality time or a local wanting to know more about the country, you will not forget this exclusive experience.
We want to take care of the environment and the surroundings of Santiago and Valparaíso by using local providers like the ones you meet on our famous food market La Vega or the beautiful Cousiño Macul Vineyard. We do annual events to give back to the community of Santiago. By showing off our green bikes together we are sending a message to Chile – be part of a sustainable wave.
With our dynamic and energetic group of skilled employees we are creating a team of empowered individuals who allow La Bicicleta Verde to be in constant progress and growth. In partnership with you we continue striving to create the best experience you will ever have on two wheels.
Core Values (3 C’s)
We like to keep things straight forward here. This is why we have come up with the 3 Cs of our true values
Commitment = Chilean Culture
We are committed to respecting the Chilean culture and showing it off to travelers. We wish to show the true authentic Chilean culture rather than what you see on the surface. We show you the places that make this city tick. We are interested in the shoe shiners, the 5th generation lemon sellers, the open love in the parks and the street dogs that are everyone’s best friends.
Consciousness = Team Values and Sustainability
We have Green Bicycles for a reason. It is a sign of our dedication to the planet and the city we live in. Santiago is one of the world’s most air polluted cities. This is primarily due to the heavy traffic. We wish to get more bums on bicycle seats and less behind steering wheels.
Contentment = The Team and the Travelers.
We left a life of books and desks for a reason, and that reason is people. Nothing matters more to us than the Green Team and the travelers who come to join us for adventures. We care about everyone we work with, from the suppliers (always local), to the cleaners, to top management. We are a horizontal hierarchy company and have an open door policy to everyone. For us, no meeting can be important enough to not allow a knocker at the door to enter. Each individual is as important as the other.
When it comes to travelers, you have our attention from the moment you walk through our doors until its time for you to leave the city. We are not here just to sell you a tour. We are here to help you out in anyway we can, whether it be directions of where to get an awesome meal or how to use the Metro. As friendliness is our best policy, we love getting to know people!
