EcoRoute of Buenos Aires, a walk of little difficulty, surrounded by green spaces and beautiful landscapes to enjoy the Río de la Plata.
In Buenos Aires, there are several ecological reserves, which are specially protected green space areas, with the best views of the Paraná Delta and the Río de la Plata. In our EcoRoute, we are going to stay by the River to be able to complete this circuit in the same day.
As an extra, we will tell you everything you are going to be able to do in each neighborhood that borders this beautiful promenade.
The path, you can start it in the order that we tell you, or do it in reverse, according to your preference of where you want to finish the tour.
That said, let’s start this beautiful path, full of species of fauna and flora, which you can do on foot or by bicycle…
We will start in the renowned Ecological Reserve South Coast, which is located on the coast of the Río de la Plata. Here we tell you everything you need to know about this incredible outdoor space! You will recognize the neighborhood of Puerto Madero, with several attractions for you to enjoy, which we tell you about here. In addition, a few blocks away, you will also find the traditional neighborhood of San Telmo!
Leaving South Coast, the next stop is the University City Reserve. To get here, without leaving the coastal path, we recommend that you follow the streets that remain on the path of the River. We leave you their website for more information.
Before arriving at the University City Reserve, you are going to pass through the neighborhood of Palermo, so we leave you a note here for you to know everything you can do in this neighborhood! Among the most important attractions are the famous Palermo Parks, the Planetarium, the Floralis Generic, next to the steps of the Faculty of Law, and the Rosedal.
Following the path, we continue straight along Costanera Rafael Obligado Avenue until we reach the Aeroparque, continuing a little further along this same street, until we reach the internal streets that will allow you to enter the Ecological Reserve of University City. Before arriving at the Reserve, you will be able to visit the Memory Park. Here we leave you more information so that you know what it is about.
If you made it this far, congratulations! We are halfway and only the last effort is missing…let’s go!
The next stop is the Vicente López Ecological Reserve, a route that you can enjoy and delight yourself with the landscape, since the corridor to there is along the entire River, an area known as the Vicente López Coast. At this point, you will be on the side of the Province and not the Capital as a few blocks ago.
Along this corridor, you will make the well-known Walk of Vicente López, which you can learn more about here. Later, to get to the Ecological Reserve, you will have to deviate a bit from the coast, because the streets will be cut off. Likewise, if you use our map as a guide, there will be no way to get lost or do unnecessary extra kilometers.
Within the same Reserve, you will find paths that go along the River, which will bring you closer to the last stop of our EcoRoute. You will be able to enjoy and take many pictures at the river Viewpoint, since the view here is incredible! We leave you their website here.
Continuing along Sebastián Elcano Street, we will arrive at the Ribera Norte Municipal Natural Park. Here, you will notice the beginning of endless bars that have a direct view of the coast. If you need a break, this place is the ideal place to relax, enjoy a chill moment and have an aperitif.
Very well, if we continue along Sebastián Elcano, we will arrive at Almafuerte street, or the one that follows it called Los Álamos, where we will turn right to reach the Park entrance.
From here, you can return to the capital area with several bus lines. If you came by bike or on foot, just take the same path in reverse.
The total route of our walk is approximately 22km. Obviously, you can divide the walk in two times if it seems like a lot to do in the same day. The idea is that you live your own adventure!
We invite you to join our Free Tours around the city here, to get to know Buenos Aires even more!
We put together a map with the path marked so that you can design your own walking circuit and choose where to get to each place.
