Tag 1: Havana

Ankunft zu jeder Zeit möglich. Ein Ankunftstransfer zum Startpunkt der Tour ist inklusive – ein „Casa Particular“ (ein kubanisches Haus, das als Bed an Breakfast genutzt wird) für ein authentisches kubanisches Erlebnis.


Tag 2: Havana/Viñales

Unternimm einen Rundgang durch die Altstadt von Havanna. Auf dem Weg nach Viñales kommen wir durch eine stark landwirtschaftlich geprägte Region, in der sowohl Zuckerrohr als auch Tabak angebaut wird. Besuche eine „Vega“ (Tabakplantage), um zu sehen, wie die berühmten kubanischen Zigarren hergestellt werden.
Viñales is in the Pinar del Rio province and located in a fertile valley surrounded by the unusual mogotes, or limestone pincushion hills. Arguably one of the prettiest natural areas in Cuba, we have many opportunities here to enjoy the area, whether it be hiking or simply sitting back and enjoying the view.


Tag 3: Viñales

Enjoy an orientation walk then a free day in the area. Opt to go caving, hiking, biking, or just relax and enjoy the beautiful views of the valley.
Arguably one of the prettiest natural areas in Cuba, take the chance to explore the area, or simply sit back and enjoying the view.

Hüpfe ins Meer, um den Vormittag beim Schnorcheln in der Schweinebucht zu verbringen. Wir machen uns auf den Weg durch die Landschaft nach Santa Clara. Tauche ein in die kubanische Geschichte und besuche das Che-Guevara-Mausoleum und -Museum. Weiterreise ins koloniale Remedios, wo du in die Kultur dieser Stadt eintauchst, die häufig übergangen wird.


Tag 6: Remedios/Gibara

A long travel day will be rewarded with stunning beaches set amidst green hills that early explorers described as the most beautiful coastline they had ever seen.


Tag 7: Gibara/Baracoa

Weiterreise nach Baracoa. Die Gegend hat von Stränden über Wandermöglichkeiten bis hin zu Museen einfach alles zu bieten.
The best way to get around this colonial town, situated on the bay with mountains towering in the background, is on foot. Wander the malecón (boardwalk) and visit the forts built to defend the city from pirates.


Tag 8: Baracoa

With free time, opt to hike near El Yunque or explore the breathtaking beaches for which this area of Cuba is famous.
Take some time to visit the city then head further afield to the mountains or visit the striking black sand beaches. Playa Maguana and the smaller Playa Nava are both nearby and accessible by bike or taxi. Parque Nacional Alejandro de Humboldt is approximately 40 km outside of town and well worth a visit.


Tag 9: Baracoa/Santiago de Cuba

Drive along the rugged coast towards Santiago de Cuba, the cradle of the Cuban revolution and home of son rhythms. Enjoy an included salsa lesson, then try out some new moves on the town.
Santiago has a vibrant traditional music scene that will entice even the shyest dancer out to experiment with some salsa moves.

Enjoy free time in Trinidad. Opt to hike in nearby Topes de Collantes National Park to see the Salto del Caburni waterfall, or visit Ancón Beach for diving, snorkelling or lounging. Savour a local dinner as a group hosted by one of the homestay families, then head out for a Big Night Out.
For outdoor enthusiasts, Trinidad is a haven for activities. If a beach is in the cards, try snorkelling or diving in nearby Playa Ancón. Enjoy a local meal together with one of the host families.
