Let’s escape to the peripheries of Havana Bay.
This tour is one of the best ways to escape from the touristic Havana and had a glance of some of the back hidden non-touristic localities of the city.This is the longest and most challenging of our three tours. With over 40 km and the constant presence of hills is meant to be for people who cycle oftenly. To complete the ride you don´t have to be a professional, though a good physical condition is required.
Starting in our headquarter we cross the city directly to the Bay of Havana. A small ferry will take us to Casa Blanca, a small town in the opposite side. Our first stop is at the feet of the Christ of Havana statue, an attractive view point 50 meters above sea level, with a beautiful view of the city coastline. Afterwards, a quick riding in the surroundings of the colonial fortresses complex Castle of the Three Kings of Morro – San Carlos de la Cabaña. Bordering the bay trhough rural and industrial roads we get to The village of Guanabacoa, National Monument, formerly Indian reservation, and today the cradle of Santeria religion. Here we will have a break, some snacks or light lunch and liquids.The tour continues around Regla town, with a second high viewpoint at the Colina Lennin, which will reveal you the size of our city. Our last stop is at the Catholic Church“Nuestra Señora de la Virgen de Regla”, the black Madonna. A second ferry will take us back to Old Havana. The tour ends with a pleasent ride along the Malecón (Seafront Boulevard), back to our office.
