Cuba is the biggest island in the Caribbean, with a landscape that varies from rugged peaks and fertile farmland to endless tropical, white-sand beaches and our Cuba trekking holiday achieve's visiting the sights and walking in the mounains. Aiming to see as much as possible of this diversity, we begin our adventure with short walks in the Sierra del Escambray mountains. We walk on the shores of Lake Hanabanilla, enjoy a boat trip and see if we can spot the colourful Cuba Toucan and busy hummingbirds. Continuing our journey to the southeast of the island we visit Trinidad and Bayamo before entering the Sierra Maestra for our 2-day trek that will take us to Cuba's high point at Pico Turquino (1974m). Our holiday to this magnificent island ends with a night in Santiago de Cuba, the second largest city before returning to Havana and it's beautiful old town. This holiday encompasses walking to allow you to stretch your legs between visiting some of the historic and famous sights that Cuba is so famous for.

Is this holiday for you?

This holiday aims to give a good overview of Cuba from a walkers perspective. In order to see as much of the island as possible there are a number of half-day transfers during which we will stop at various famous or noteworthy sites. The walking is a mix of easier half day walks and more challenging hikes, including the two day trek when we will be carrying all our personal equipment for 1 night. On these 2 walks we will be walking for 7-9 hours in a day, other walks are less in duration with an average of 4-5hrs. Accommodation is a mix of hotels and we will also use a mountain hut whilst on the mountain. The underfoot terrain we will encounter will vary but in general we will be following established trails and the going is nowhere very difficult. In some areas and dependent on weather conditions some paths maybe muddy.

  • Guided sightseeing tour of Havana. Transfer to Santa Clara.

    After breakfast at the hotel we start with a walking sightseeing tour of the city. Havana is one of the best-preserved colonial cities in Latin America. Centuries of Spanish and African interaction have created a unique culture, and its years of isolation from globalisation have left the city unspoilt by the stores and fast food outlets which have taken over so many city centres. The ice-cream coloured colonies buildings and shaded squares, palm-treed avenues give the centre a real charm. This morning we have a sightseeing tour of the city. We visit the historical centre of the city, now classified as a UNESCO heritage site and through the pretty squares, museums and streets. We have lunch in a local restaurant and then we transfer to Santa Clara which is approx 3 ½ hrs drive. Santa Clara is an interesting and famous stop in Cuba because this was where, in 1958, troops of Che Guevara ambushed the Batista army train full of munitions bound for Havana, a turning point in the Cuban revolution. There is a monument here to this attack, the ‘Tren Blindado’. Overnight hotel in Santa Clara.

  • Transfer to Lake Hanabanilla for a walk. Transfer to Topes de Collantes.

    An early start today as we transfer to Lake Hanabanilla, approx 1 hr before our starting our first walk in this delightful area. From the Hotel Hanabanilla we start a straight-forward 12km hike. We walk through various coffee plantations and cultivated fields, on low level and undulating terrain. We return to the hotel and have a short boat ride across the lake to Rio Negro where we have lunch, and can cool off with dipping our feet in the fresh water. Descending to the shores of the lake we take the short boat ride back to the hotel. After freshening up we jump in the vehicle and transfer to our next hotel, located 32km up in the heart of the Topes de Collantes mountains at 800m. Our hotel is situated near the interesting spa-hotel, the kurhotel. This building is dominated by a massive concrete structure and was designed in 1936 when it served as a sanatorium for victims of tuberculosis. Following the Revolution, the disease was eradicated in Cuba. The structure was then turned into a teacher-training facility. The complex, which includes smaller hotels, was developed as a resort area in the late 1970s and now focuses on nature and health tourism. Time permitting we can visit this hotel. Walking 5-6 hours. Overnight hotel in Topes de Collantes.

    After a short transfer this morning we set off on a 15km walk in the Parque Guanayara. This park is divided into a series of smaller parks and numerous walks in these cool Escambray mountains at around 800m. The forest is full of fascinating flora and fauna as we walk along the trail. There are a few short ascents and descents along the way. At the Hacienda de la Gallega we meet the famous trail up to the waterfall ‘Salto el Rocio’ and the mirador. This takes us along the Sendero Centinelas del Rio Melidioso, which is a trail that follows the Melodious River. The Rocio waterfalls cascade 20m over a cliff surrounded by delicate lush ferns and forest. The pool further down at the second falls as Posa del Venado is best of a chilly dip to refresh us. We will also see coffee plantations, caves and smaller waterfalls along this route. We continue up to the mirador for some beautiful views. We return and transfer back to our hotel in Topes de Collantes.

This pretty waterfall and pools lie in the forest surrounded by verdant ferns and tangles of forest. The paths vary from forest track to rocky paths under some beautifully featured rock structures.

    Dating from the 16th century, and now a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Trinidad with its cobbled streets, old colonial buildings and pastel-washed walls, is quintessential Cuba. The heart of the historical town is the Plaza Mayor a palm filled open space flanked by churches, government buildings and one time mansion houses over 100 years old. In the morning we have a guided sightseeing walk around this charming old city. We include in our tour the Museo Romantico and a cocktail at the ‘La Canchanchara’. This famous bar with its patio in the shade, serves the famous cocktail that it is named after, a bowl of lime, ice, water, honey and aguardiente – perfect to cool off! We then continue in the vehicle to the town of Camaquey where we have lunch before driving past Bayamo to the hotel. Now in the south eastern part of Cuba we can see the change in the landscape with the higher and thick forested mountains of the Sierra Maestra where our final challenge of Pico Turquino lies. The total drive time from Trinidad is approximately 8 hours. Overnight hotel, Villa Santo Domingo.

  • Walk to Comandancia de la Plata (Fidel's HQ).

    This morning we set off in our jeep from the hotel to Alto de Naranjo 950m where our walk starts. We walk to Commandancia de la Plata which is approx 1 hour from our Alto de Naranjo. But there is no hurry today, so we can take our time and enjoy the scenery. The path takes us through charming countryside and we leave the agricultural fields and enters into the more mountainous and cloud forest of the Sierra Maestra. La Plata was the Fidel Castro’s headquarters and residence during the revolution and is now a simple museum, and interesting place seeped in history. We then return downwards and carry onto the small village of La Platica, where we experience very simple living. The farmers here take care of the environment of the Parque Nacional Turquino. We get the chance to talk to them and have an insight into their life. We have a picnic lunch and can visit the La Platica ecological community. We then walk back to Alto de Naranjo and transfer back to the hotel. We can then pack our bags and prepare for our ascent of Pico Turquino. We should only take our sleeping bags overnight items.

The hotel for the 2 nights in Topes de Collantes is simple and looks as if it's stepped out of the communist era! It's all part of the rural Cuban experience, which probably will not last much longer. In Trinidad our hotel is on the beach, Playa Ancon, and has a swimming pool, it is a 15mins taxi ride into Trinidad. We have 2 nights at Villa Santo Domingo which is in the foothills of the Sierra Maestra Mountains on the Yara River.

View the gallery below for images of the style of accommodation used

All meals included from dinner on day 1 to breakfast on day 14.

Cuban cuisine is a fusion of Spanish, African and Caribbean styles and varies according to the region. Typical Cuban main dishes are Arroz con Pollo (yellow-saffron rice with chicken), Carne con Papas (meat and potatoes), and Arroz con Bistec y Papas Fritas (white rice with beef steak & French fries). Cuban cuisine is meat heavy and it can be difficult to cater for vegetarians. A typical Cuban breakfast is espresso and toast, although all hotels will give you the option to add eggs or may provide a buffet. Wine is not usually taken with meals and most Cubans will drink beer at mealtimes if they want an alcoholic beverage. 1 litre of water per person per day is provided, we do recommend that you drink more than this. Water is readily available to purchase. We recommend that you purchase additional water each day especially when walking.

A single timed transfer from Havana Airport to the group accommodation is provided on day 1 of the trip itinerary. This transfer is timed with the arrival of the group flight which usually arrives into Havana in the evening of day 1 of the land only itinerary. On the return there is a single timed transfer to Havana Airport for the flight departing in the late evening of the final day of the itinerary.

Clients booking a Land Only Package MUST provide the KE office with details of their flights. Hotel contact details and an emergency number will be sent with your booking confirmation.

The group will be accompanied throughout the holiday by an experienced English-speaking Cuban leader. You will also have a driver for the whole trip, and specialist guides for certain excursions on the itinerary.

Approximately £150-200 (or equivalent in US$ or Euros) should be sufficient for miscellaneous expenses including your 2 not included meals, bar bills, airport departure tax and reasonable tips - approx. £40 for the local tour leader, guide and driver(s). Water costs about $1 per 1.5 litre. If you intend to buy expensive souvenirs, you should budget accordingly (credit cards can be useful in this respect, although their use is still limited). Departure tax is 25 CUC. The national currency of Cuba is the Convertible Peso, which is on an exchange rate of one to one with the US Dollar. One Convertible Peso is broken down into a hundred cents. We recommend that you take Pounds Sterling or Euros cash to exchange into Convertible Pesos in Cuba. US Dollars may be exchanged for Convertible Pesos, but a service charge is usually levied. Money can be changed at the airport or in an exchange bureau or at a cuban 'cadeca'. It may also be possible to change money at your hotel in Havana. Banking hours tend to be Monday - Friday from 09.00 - 15.00hrs. It may be possible to obtain cash from ATM’s using a credit or debit card. ATM’s are only available in Havana and Trinidad and are not always reliable. Travellers cheques can be exchanged with difficulty, but not those drawn on US banks. Most hotels, travel suppliers, and larger restaurants will accept credit card payments (but not credit cards drawn on US banks). All credit card payments will incur a 12% charge. British travellers should check that their cards can be used, as around 20 percent of British-issued cards (including those of Abbey National) are outsourced to a US company that is barred from processing such transactions.

Tipping is the accepted way of saying ‘thank you’ to you local guide and driver. Tipping is entirely voluntary and should be dependent on good service. We advise you to tip as a group.

Your baggage will be carried in the vehicle throughout this trip, with the exception of when you are climbing Pico Turquino. When on the mountain you will have to carry your personal belongings including sleeping bag, toothbrush etc for 1 night. You should take a backpack/rucksack suitable for this purpose. You must also be able to fit into the pack your water and packed lunch for the day. For the rest of the trip there is no weight restriction other than that imposed by your international carrier. However, we do ask you to restrict your luggage to one main bag (your KE bag) and your backpack/rucksack.

Our holidays are normally designed with minimal 'down time' at the start of the trip, but having a day or two at the beginning will have the additional benefit of allowing you time to get over the stress of travelling across time zones, leaving you refreshed and ready for your holiday. We can easily arrange for you to have additional nights and airport transfers.

All KE clients will receive a FREE KE trek bag.  These have been specially made to stand up to the rigours of adventure travel.  Your KE bag will be posted to you when your trip is guaranteed to run or on receipt of your booking if the trip is already guaranteed.  If you have travelled with us before and already have a KE trek bag you can select an alternative free gift in the booking process.

This holiday does not involve any significant ascent to altitude and we would not expect any altitude issues with this trip.

For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required. The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. Please check the relevant embassy or consulate for other nationalities. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Visa requirements and charges are subject to change without notice. If you are travelling outside the EU you should have at least 2 blank pages in your passport.

Visa Cuba

UK and USA passport holders do require a Tourist Card. If you are a UK passport holder and travelling on one of our scheduled departure we will send you the Cuba Tourist Visa Card prior to departure.

Although US citizens are still not allowed to visit Cuba for the purposes of tourism, there is change in the air and in July 2015 the US opened the embassy in Havana . We recommend that you consulate a local travel agency for advice on Cuban Visas and direct flights for the latest information.

Transit via Canada

From 15 March 2016

All citizens (except for USA citizens) will require an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorisation), and you must get this before boarding any Canada-bound aircraft or ship, or entering on a land border. The fee is CAD$7 and you should apply for it at

NOTE: This is required if you are transiting through Canada

You should contact your GP or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella, along with hepatitis A and typhoid. A good online resource is Travel Health Pro.

We recommend you check if you require an adaptor for your electrical items at:

It makes a lot of sense to spend some time before coming on an active holiday getting some additional exercise. The fitter you are, after all, the more enjoyable you will find the experience. We suggest that you adopt a weekly exercise regime. Regular hiking in hill country is the best preparation. Jogging, cycling and swimming are also good for developing cardio-vascular fitness as well as improving stamina. Before departure, we suggest that you try to fit in a number of walks.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign & Commonwealth Offices ‘Know before you go’ campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas, and we recommend that all KE travellers take a look at the FCO Travel Advice for their chosen destination on the official FCO website: North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

Cuba enjoys a warm, tropical maritime climate and, at the time of our holidays, the daytime temperatures, both on the coast and in the hills will range between 20°C and 28°C. Evening temperatures are a little cooler but usually still warm. It’s entirely possibly that we won’t experience any rain. However, it’s always best to carry a lightweight waterproof in your daypack just in case.
