Tigre, located 28 km north of Buenos Aires, is a lovely waterside town and gateway to the rivers and wetlands of the vast Paraná Delta. It’s a popular day trip from Buenos Aires, reachable by train or boat. Boating and other water-related activities are popular in Tigre, but there’s also some scenic running along the Lujan River.

Our main running route in Tigre is focused on the Paseo Victoria, a riverside esplanade with nice parks, and water views. Start at the Monumento al Remero, and run north for 1.4 km along the Paseo Victoria to the end of the path at the lovely Museo de Arte de Tigre. Double back, then turning right onto Lavalle, for a section along the Tigre River. Run for 0.7 km to a small bridge just past the L’ Fóret restaurant, and then do a jaunt along the southern side of the river, to the end at the Wanjorlu shopping mall, with the amusement park to your right.

Add-On: Explore the waterfront quais of the Puerto De Frutos market.
