5 stages in the heart of the massif on mostly rolling tracks await you.

CUBA MOUNTAIN TRAIL
5 stages - 120 KM
In the centre of Cuba, the Escambray or Guamuhaya massif is a mountainous region located in the provinces of Sancti Spíritus, Villa Clara and Cienfuegos. Its highest point is the San Juan peak, which reaches an altitude of 1,156 metres. Home to the insurgency during the Cuban revolution, its name is closely associated with Che Guevara, who set up camp there in 1958, and the anti-Castro rebellions between 1959 and 1965.
Trinidad is a city renowned for its historic centre with its colonial architecture, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988! Restored, the city has lost none of its ancient charm. The cobbled streets and pastel-coloured houses give the impression that time has stood still since the colonial era.
