Cuba expeditions
  • Cover 350kms from coast to coast
  • Pass villages, fruit orchards & sugar plantations
  • World Heritage sites of Trinidad
  • Explore Old Havana
  • Optional beach extension

This cycling expedition begins in the Cuban capital of Havana and ends by the Caribbean Sea in Trinidad some 350kms later. Most of the cars on the road are large American Chevys and Buicks from before the revolution, and buildings have remained untouched for more than half a century. You can't help but be touched by the friendliness and pride that the Cubans feel for their country.

Outside of Havana, there are very few vehicles on the road and as Cuba has a strong biking culture, you will fit right in. You will pass villages separated by colourful fruit orchards, sugar plantations and tree-lined avenues. You will also see the monument to Che Guevara as you pass through Santa Clara.

You will cycle through Cienfuegos, which sits in a bay facing the Caribbean Sea and has attracted pirates through the ages, and continue to the magnificent Sierra del Escambray before finally reaching Trinidad.

You can spend your final evening dining and salsa dancing before returning to Havana.
