Cuba’s music, beaches, old cars, striking architecture and revolutionary history combine to make the perfect cultural destination with a lively atmosphere. Our cycle route passes through stunning countryside with a patchwork of plantations, fields and jungle, allowing us to appreciate the traditional way of life that continues today. Out of the saddle we can experience Trinidad’s vibrant music scene, the crumbling colonial buildings of Havana and learn about the revolutionary history of Santiago. After a day of cycling you'll no doubt welcome Cuba's speciality - a refreshing mojito!

“Good trip, superb guide, interesting journey.Of 8 on the trip, 6 came back with (subsequently medically-diagnosed) Giardia.Not Exodus' fault, but people should be made aware of this problem so that they seek medical attention earlier. This is more than holiday tummy.I have been on many guided holidays, not only with Exodus, and our guide on this trip was probably the best we've encountered.”
Cycling through Cuba and it's history

“A fantastic holiday for those keen to experience the delights of this vibrant and happy country. The cycling is tough, lots of hills and a strong headwind much of the time, not to mention the potholes and exhaust fumes! But in the saddle you get to see the real Cuba, off the beaten track, the smiling Cuban faces, the simple Cuban homes and the wonderful Cuban music - all in warm weather and clear skies. We did however not expect the fantastic history lesson that we received from our leader, who left no stone unturned in his explanations of the events prior to, during and post the Revolution of the 1950s. By the end of the holiday we had all gained a much better understanding of the Cuban way of life and we found ourselves being intrigued as to what the future might hold for this amazing country.”

“I would definitely recommend this fabulous trip! Cycling through Cuba is one of the best ways to see the country and its people along the way. The trip ambitiously covers large distances over a sizeable island but the mixture of cycling and bus transfers just about works. There is a good mixture of accommodation-types from larger, swankier hotels (either modernist government hotels or beautiful colonial-style buildings) to staying in a local's home (Casas particulares).”
Absolutely fabulous way to visit Cuba

“The 15 day cycle trip through Cuba was simply wonderful!
It was exhilarating to 1-cycle through small towns and villages and see things and people that other types of tours do not offer. Pressure about cycling was relaxed, so if you were having a bad day or were daunted by the hills, then you could take time off and ride in the bus.
The team on our ride were spectacular! They were efficient, attentive, kind, cheerful and interesting. Our guide Alex, was funny, intelligent, on the ball, accomodating....and informative about many aspects of Cuba and with a good knowledge of Cuban history and society. He made our trip an absolute delight.
On the whole hotels and Casas were good, food was way better than I was led to believe, and the cities and towns chosen for the itinerary were varied and interesting. Well worth the money!”
