Are you part of an equestrian club and looking for your annual adventure overseas?
Are you a group of friends wanting to get in touch with nature and Cuban authenticity whilst horseback riding through the endless valleys?
Whatever your story, we invite you to come on our 3 day riding adventure. You’ll experience the non-touristy side of Cuba, whilst riding on our healthy, well-cared-for, strong & gentle horses. All experiences necessary, though complete beginners might find the extensive riding challenging. If you think that might be the case, but still want to do some horse riding, consider this trip instead.
This 3 day riding adventure is a perfect way to explore the three valleys in the region. You’ll spend time with the locals along the way, learning about their traditional farming methods. Smoke your own cigar whilst riding through the world-famous tobacco fields. Enjoy farm-to-table creole food in viewpoint ‘paladars’ (privately owned restaurants) and sip on piña coladas straight from the pineapple.
Ride through stunning views and along interesting and varying terrains. Visit caves with natural lagoons within for a quick swim. Jump into mountainside lakes and hike up to hidden caves. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, in which you’ll be riding through breathtaking landscape on wonderful horses with jovial and experienced guides.
Be collected at 08:30 from your accommodation in Havana in your own classic American car

When you’re refreshed, put on your riding gear and prepare for your first adventure into the valley of Palmarito.
07:30 Breakfast with a view on the rooftop
08:30 We love making the most of the peaceful mornings and fresh temperature for us and the horses. We’ll leave early and ride through untouched areas of the two valleys of Palmarito and Silencio. We’ll stop regularly for rests and refuels (for us and the horses!). We’ll swim in natural lakes and enjoy viewpoint mojitos.
Lunch is included in a viewpoint farm.
Enjoy a free evening at your leisure.
It’s another early morning, as we are up before the sun to ride and hike to a hidden settlement of Los Acuaticos. We will reach the top to catch the sun come through the mist and reveal the most beautiful sunrise over the three valleys.
We’ll then continue the ride through the Valley of Viñales, exploring more interesting trails and meeting more locals throughout the day.
We will have regular breaks for us and the horses. Lunch is included.
Farewell group dinner in your accommodation, followed by a free evening (perhaps some salsa with the locals?)
