NOW OFFERING EXCURSIONS IN: Valley el Silencio and Valley Palmarito.
See below for more information on each valley and how to book.
Valley del silencio
Valley del Silencio is just that – silent! It boasts breathtaking views over the endless tobacco fields, natural lakes and hidden caves, interesting riding terrain, and an array of varied flora and fauna.
This is our classic trip, but by no means average. You’ll see local farmers working their crop, an array of birdlife and wildlife tending to their business around you, an array of unique riding terrain to enjoy. You’ll ride down streams, up hills, across fields, and along dirt-tracks.
Valley Palmarito is our newest trip to offer, and it doesn’t disappoint. With luscious surroundings, tobacco field after tobacco field, vultures swirling overhead, and the local farmers working hard in their crops, you’ll experience a truly authentic Vinales Experience.
Stopping off at a local tobacco farmer’s farm, you’ll learn about the process from start to finish, and even learn to roll and smoke your own cigar.
You’ll visit a cave with a fresh water pool inside (it’s cold!) and you’ll stop off at a serene lake to enjoy some local Cuban music and perhaps a mojito or two. Take your bathing suit if you fancy a swim to cool off!
