A lovely easy paced cycling holiday in Cuba. Two weeks of salsa and cycling, old cars and cigars, on the Caribbean’s most vibrant island. Our Cuban Revolutions tour offers an unrivalled insight into the fascinating island of Cuba. During our tour we stay in a wide variety of accommodation, including hotels with pools and, in order to get the full flavour of your time in Cuba, we will also be staying in casas particulares (private houses).
This biking trip takes us on a journey through Cuba and begins in the historic city of Havana with a city tour of some of its famous landmarks. After transferring to Bayamo our cycling starts in earnest with our initial highlight the religious site of the Virgin of Charity at El Cobre. It’s from here we set our sights on Santiago de Cuba; the birthplace of the revolution and home of Cuban music.
Stunning views of the Carribbean Sea are next as we follow the dramatic and stunning southern coastline and head west to Sierramar and Marea de Portillo on our way to the charming provincial town of Niquero. Perfectly positioned on the Golfo de Guacanayabo it’s positioned close to the landing point for Castro, Ch̩ and the revolutionaries.
Trinidad, one of the jewels of Cuba is next and is without doubt the most picturesque city in Cuba. It’s here we spend time with local families for 2 nights before making our way to Santa Clara, to visit the Che Guevara Mausoleum. After a scenic transfer, we're back on the bikes in the area of Pinar del Rio, heading through the picturesque Mogotes of Vi̱ales on route to Soroa.
A final day's cycling takes us back to the city of Havana for a night of daiquiris and dancing. Our final day starts with a lovely walking tour of Old Havana followed by a leisurely lunch and a spot of souvenir hunting before we head to the airport and evening flight connections.
