Highlights of Highlights by Bike:
At the beginning of your Highlights by Bike Cycling Holiday you will have the opportunity to stroll the streets of Havana. You will then visit the old town on foot and finish it all off with a bike ride through the modern part of Cuba’s capital city. The historic centre of Havana was foundedby the Spaniard, Diego Velázquez, in 1519, making it one of Cuba’s oldest Spanish settlements. Its many well-preserved baroque and neoclassic buildings confirms its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a real highlight of this Cycling Holiday. The huge remnants and castles, such as that of Castillo del Morro, also stand out; they were built in the 17th century to withstand pirate attacks. These structures still largely dominate the city landscape today. One of the main attractions in the modern part of Havana is the Plaza de la Revolución with its 142m tall look-out and statue of the Cuban national hero, José Martí. We look forward to welcoming you to Havana!
During your Cuba’s Highlights by Bike Holiday you will visit Cuba’s third oldest city, where you will feel as though you have stepped back into another time. With its well-preserved colonial architecture, Trinidad oozes a certain charm, confirming its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once home to one of the most important ports for trading sugar and tobacco, the era of prosperity in Trinidad ended abruptly with the cultivation of sugar beet in Europe and the slave revolts.Stroll through the cobbled streets, past the former palaces of the sugar barons and immerse yourself in the colonial period.
Discover Cuba by bike and experience the Viñales region with its pictoresque and legendary tobacco plantations. Framed by impressive karst formations and peppered with numerous caves, the Viñales Valley is a real highpoint to the Highlights by Bike Holiday. On the tour you will have the chance to visit the magical Cueva del Indio cave which can be explored on foot, before taking a boat through the cave that the sea has formed over the years. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Viñales Valley is one of Cuba’s most beautiful landscapes which is sure to leave you with long-lastingmemories.
