Havana

Bienvenido a Cuba! A complimentary transfer is included with your trip. Please ensure you provide your flight details to your booking agent at least 14 days prior to travel so the transfer can be organised. The driver will have the address of your guesthouse. After collecting your luggage, continue through the 'Main Arrivals Hall' of the airport (do not exit through the side door). An Intrepid representative holding a sign with your name on it will be waiting to take you to your pre-arranged transfer. If you can't locate the Intrepid representative, please call +53 52506496. Do not rely on somebody else to call for you as they may be seeking commission to direct you to another transfer company.

Once you've arrived at your accommodation, your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 7 pm. Your evening is then free to relax.

Afterwards, continue on to the renowned eco-village of Las Terrazas, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve set in beautiful green surrounds and home to a lively art community.

Viñales

Because this area is very hilly you have the option to either cycle or use the support vehicle between Entronque de Herradura and Cueva de los Portales. You also have the option in Cueva de los Portales to visit the local museum.

After some time to explore, cycle on to Vinales. This route is approximately 45 kilometres at amedium to difficult level. On arrivial, get to know the streets on a short orientation walk and enjoy picnic. Afterwards, head to the Vinales Valley for a walking tour where you’ll pass smallholdings which grow tropical fruits, maize, manioc, yucca and the world´s finest tobacco. Visit a tobacco farm, where a local farmer will show you how tobacco is grown, dried and then rolled into cigars. Return to Vinales in the afternoon. At sunset, visit a hillside organic farm for dinner. The rest of the evening is free to take at your leisure- why not try one of the many live music venues or salsa the night away.

Day 5: Vinales / Cayo Jutias

After breakfast we cycle to Cayo Jutias. With its surreal white beaches and pale blue waters, Cayo Jutias is one of those Caribbean beaches you only dream about. After your ride stretch out on the sands and enjoy a packed lunch away from from the usual tourist crowds, with plenty of time to do some swimming in the warm waters. After some time to snooze and splash about, take the support vehicle back to Vinales.

Havana

Cycle from Vinales to Consolacion del Sur, a journey of approximately 40 kilometres, then transport back to Havana. On the way we visit the Diego Rivera-inspired Mural de la Prehistoria. Painted on a cliff at the foot of the Sierra de Vinales, the huge eye-catching mural took 18 people four years to finish! On arrival in Havana, make the most of a free afternoon to reacquaint yourself with Cuba's charming capital. Perhaps visit the Jose Marti Memorial Tower or, if it suits you, your guide can help organise a final group meal in one of the many paladars in Old Havana.

Riding distance: approx. 40 kms
