Trek Cuba Charity Challenge
Perhaps better known for its cigars, rum and exotic dance moves, Cuba is a vibrant Caribbean gem that also offers some fantastic trekking challenges. Contrasting landscapes of rugged mountain ranges, virgin forests, misty valleys, pockets of well tended tobacco, coffee and fruit plantations and the vast tropical coastline are key features of this fascinating island nation. Further enjoyment is derived from the beautiful old colonial cities scattered across the island, great food and a terrific blend of music and the arts that complete the Cuban experience.
After exploring the cobbled squares and narrow alleyways of the music filled capital Havana, this challenge sets off to explore Cuba’s scenic splendours on foot including Lake Hanabanilla and Topes deCollantes. Trekking in this undulating terrain stirs the soul and evokes the image that you are trekking in the revolutionary footsteps of the legendary Che Guevara.
