At 9 am our guide awaits us with the e-bikes in the park Mariana Grajales, calle 23 / entre C y D, La Habana / Vedado, named after the mother of the revolution´s hero General Officer Antonio Maceo (1845-1896). As an alternative, an individual meeting point can be settled for closed groups. After a short introduction to the e-bikes, client’s bike adjustments to each individual height and some general information about the roads and rules of Cuban traffic, we are ready to begin our discovery-trip with the e-bikes. As you will quickly notice, the means of transportation in Cuba are different, at least as we are used to.

Following the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway by e-bike, we discover the places where the life of the famous writer and Nobel Prize winner for literature took place in Cuba.

This day is dedicated to the Nobel Prize winner for literature Ernest Hemingway – Ruta Hemingway. Following the steps of his life and work in Cuba, we head to his formerly most important places in La Habana. The Hotel “Ambos Mundos”, where Ernest Hemingway used to live for a long time period during his first stay in Havana, can of course not be missed, as well as his farm “Finca Vigía” on the outskirts of the metropolis, which is faithfully restored with the support of an American Hemingway aid association. This Finca used to be the winter residence of Hemingway from 1940 to 1950. As a passionate fisherman and art lover, he spent a lot of time in the small fishermen village of Cojimar. Shortly after his arrival he already enjoyed the respect and affection of the local fishermen, who called him affectionately "Papa".

In the restaurant “La Terraza in Cojimar”, where Hemingway used to eat, we will enjoy a cocktail while having a great view at the sea. The Bavarian Garden offers the opportunity to recharge our energy for the return trip, with almost original German curry sausages and French fries. On our way back we take the Villa Panamericana to Casa Blanca. From there we cross the bay in an almost modern ferry and finish our day with a delicious Mojito in the bar “Bodeguita del Medio”, where Hemingway loved to enjoy the supposedly best Mojito in the city. Now, we slowly return to our starting point.
