At La Bicicleta Verde we work in contributing to the development of sustainable tourism proposals, from design to the operation of the tours.
Our suppliers are mainly local companies and have commitments with their communities:
– The water that we use on our city tours is from the company “Late”, which gives 100% of their profits to prestigious recognized social foundations to carry out work in helping children and young people living in social disadvantages.
– The breakfast on the Local Life and Markets Tour we have in la Vega Central, in la “Tía Ruth” . The lunch on the Bike and Wine Tour, we enjoy in a small family owned restaurant of Alto Jahuel, called Rincón de Jahuel. The stop on the Parks and Politics Tour we do in a local ice cream joint.
– As members of a community of tourism entrepreneurs, we participate as active partners in the trade association ChileSertur AG, with the goal of sharing good practices and working towards sustainable development in all that we do.
We received recognition given by Servicio Nacional de Turismo, for the contribution that La Bicicleta Verde gives to Sustainable Tourism and Tourism Awareness.
