The Cuban countryside we cycle through on this holiday is incredibly varied – cycling amongst the famous limestone karsts or “mogotes” of the Viñales Valley; touring the farming villages, and fruit selling co-operatives of the west; taking a relaxed cycle through fields of tobacco crops that make Cuba's world famous cigars; cycling high into the pristine rainforests of the Escambray Mountains; simply kicking back and enjoying a beachside mohito and an afternoon swim after cycling to the golden sands of Cuba’s Ancon peninsula.

We also cycle through some landmark towns – cycling along the cobbled streets of Trinidad past terracotta tiled homes; winding through the ornate but crumbling Spanish houses in seldom cycled areas of Havana’s old town, or spinning through Vinales, the cultural and musical centre in the west where sounds of salsa pour from every door!

With over 12 years of dedicated cycle research (and a great many cycling visits, of course!), working closely with our friends and cycle guides in Cuba, we’re sure this cycling tour of Cuba will delight and excite you.

"We finally plucked up the courage to book a cycling holiday in Cuba - CycleAcitve's itinerary looked not only interesting but flexible. It delivered on every level. Country and town cycling, great recommendations for food in the paladors, rest days (if you felt the need). A mix of singles and couples of all age groups moved to collectively enjoy the experience that is 'Cuba' - Go now before it changes you will not be disappointed with this intimate tour that will make you feel you got to know the real Cuba. Thank you CycleActive."

The Cuba trip lived up to all our expectations. We got a taste of the country that you could not get any other way. We would recommend it to anyone wanting to get a little off the beaten track without sacrificing all their creature comforts.
