Find out more about Magellan Guides
The Cuban tours are the only trips on the Magellan menu that aren’t run in-house by one of our own guides, why is that you may ask? Well, as much as we’d love to be the Cuba pros on this one we think that Che Guevara’s son Ernesto deservedly pulls rank here in the tour guiding stakes so we hand the reins of our Cuban trips over to him and his team at La Poderosa tours. We’ve loved designing and riding tours over there with him and his best friend Camillio, the weather is amazing, the bikes epic and the country needs to be ridden through to be truly experienced so we’re really proud to act as their UK agent on these fantastic trips.

Cuba is a wonderful country, full of culture, amazing scenery and lots of fun. Come and join me and see Cuba in style!

Adventure through Cuba!

We leave sunny Havana and ride towards Vinales the land of tobacco farms and visit the working plantation there. The next day we ride to the Las Terrazas community in Sierra del Rosario Nature Reserve and spend some time down by the river at San Juan. We cruise to Trinidad via the city of Cienfuegos where we will ride the quaint cobbled streets to our backstreet villa.

After this comes a visit to the Che Guevara Mausoleum and Armoured train on the way to the island of Cayo Santa Maria. This island is part of the Jardines del Rey archipelago just off the north coast of Cuba and is joined to the mainland by a private causeway, with special permission from the police we are allowed to stop off after joining the causeway for some pictures.

The following day we have a city tour of Cardenas to look forwards to on our way to our hotel in Varadero which is right on the beach giving us a chance to go for a nice swim before another amazing dinner with cigars and cocktails.

We take scenic roads all day heading back towards Havana for your final night, we ride the lovely twisties that bring us up into the forests of the Sierra del Rosario a beautiful mountain range in the provinces of Pinar del Rio. With all your meals covered on the trip the only thing you need to budget for is flights, fuel and cigars to bring home with you!

Cuba is never still and exudes vibrancy and passion just as readily as a the bar tenders mix your first Mojito of the evening!.
