Windward Isles and French Antilles WI

Trip Duration 12 Days

Caribbean Adventure Holiday

For those who traditionally associate the West Indies with sun, sea and sand, this exploration of three very different Caribbean islands will surprise and delight. Our journey begins in St Lucia, whose 'Pitons' provide a dramatic backdrop to its beaches and nature trails. We also visit Guadeloupe and Dominica, two contrasting islands where we hike through rainforest, marvel at Dominica's many natural wonders, discover spectacular waterfalls and taste the local rum. Along the way we have the opportunity to swim and snorkel in the warm Caribbean waters.

Tour Highlights

  • Crayfish Waterfall (Guadeloupe) - Swim in a waterfall surrounded by nature in the National Park
  • Morne Trois Pitons National Park (Dominica) - Discover this scenic UNESCO World Heritage Site on foot, hiking two different trails
  • Cabrits National Park (Dominica) - Visit the site of Fort Shirley, an 18th century British garrison which once housed 600 soldiers, and is now the venue for Dominica's annual Jazz and Creole festival
  • Soufriere (Saint Lucia) - Stay in the traditional fishing village of Soufriere overlooked by the forest-clad volcanic cone of Petit Piton
  • Beautiful beaches - Relax on sandy beaches in Guadeloupe and Saint Lucia and snorkel in the Caribbean Sea
