A land of political intrigue, the turquoise blues of the Caribbean, lush tropical forests, and colourful flora and fauna. The reality is a unique and wonderful place!
We walk in tropical landscapes and discover Cuba’s rich colonial history, dating from the landing of Columbus. Both Trinidad and Havana are World Heritage Sites. Cuba was the staging post for the convoys of gold-laden galleons returning to Spain, part of the fabled Spanish Main.
We fly into Havana and then travel to the Sierra del Rosario Mountains with three nights at Viñales and one at Soroa. Here we explore the rare Karst rock formations of the Viñales Valley.
We fly west and continue by road to Baracoa to walk where Columbus landed more than 500 years earlier, and then to Santiago, Cuba’s second city.Stopping at Camaguay we continue to old Trinidad, and walk in the Sierra del Escambray. Finally to Havana with time to explore one of the world’s most beautiful cities.
This is a holiday for the traveller and has a pioneer status to indicate the spirit of adventure, as things may not always go as expected – it’s the Cuban way! However we aim to get out into the hills for walks on eight days.
Visit soon – with the new spirit of entente, Cuba isn’t going to remain unique and untouched forever! Please ask about extending your stay in Havana at the end of the holiday.
