Itinerary

Day 1Havana
Arrive at any time. An arrival transfer is included to the tour's starting point, a "casa particular" (Cuban home used as a bed and breakfast), for an authentic Cuban experience. Arrive in Havana at any time. There are no planned activities, so check into the casa and enjoy the city. Your CEO will organize a short meeting in the evening.
Day 2Havana/Viñales
Depart Havana after breakfast and transfer west to Viñales in Pinar del Río, the “Garden Province” of Cuba. Head out on the first ride – a circular route around Viñales, cycling past the famous mogotes (limestone pincushion hills) of the region. Leave Havana this morning and drive to the small village of Viñales. This region is one of the most stunning in Cuba, know for its mogotes (large limestone pincushion hills) that make for spectacular views. In the afternoon, get fitted on a bike and hop in the saddle for the first ride in the area. Although we're not covering much distance today, it's a great opportunity to get accustomed to the conditions and prepared for the days ahead. After the ride, enjoy some free time in Viñales and opt to go caving, hiking, or relax and enjoy the beautiful views of the valley. Viñales is the base for the next three days of cycling, so unpack and get comfortable. Have dinner in the hotel and meet with the CEO in the evening to prepare for tomorrow’s adventure. Today's riding distance: approx 31km, with elevation gains of 340m
Day 3Viñales
Cycle through the hilly terrain of the Pinar del Rio province while heading north. The ride leads to the docks at Palma Rubia to catch a ferry to Cayo Levisa for a day of blissing out on the beach. Enjoy free time to relax before returning to Vinales for the night by ferry and private vehicle. Cayo Levisa is the quintessential white-sand Caribbean beach that has yet to be found by most travellers to Cuba on an island just off the mainland. Enjoy time this afternoon to relax, go for a swim, or snorkel. Later in the afternoon, return to the mainland and hop in the support vehicle for a lift back to Viñales. Today's riding distance: approx 60km, with elevation gains of 535m
