Most activities in Cuba are done at a slow pace: there aren’t many cars on the road; cycling and walking are the principal ways of getting around for the patient, laid-back population. This private holiday takes you to the highlights of the scenic western half of the island, which you will be exploring at a similar leisurely speed. The activities are gentle, by no means hard-core, but you'll feel you've had some exercise come the evening. Stay at small hotels with an authentic Cuban feel.
Cuba is unique and inspiring; a socialist stronghold, with a rebellious history, colonial splendour in many of the towns, spectacular countryside and a Caribbean heart. Its vibrancy and friendly people will make a lasting impression. Cycle round Havana’s historic centre; then travel by bus to colonial Trinidad for some hill-walking among cool mountain pines. Kayak through tranquil Cuenfuegos Bay to survey the monumental Spanish-built Jagua Fortress. More walks await you at Las Terrazas, where sunny slopes are blanketed in coffee plantations. Hop back on a bike to cycle through the magical limestone country of the fertile Viñales valley.
