Hiking is both a philosophy and a medicine for the body and for the soul. Join Elisa on an unforgettable experience hiking among dramatic volcanic, coral and wild landscapes to discover the island from a new vantage point and uncover numerous hidden gems of the island. Clients can choose from a variety of proposed hikes with a varying degree of difficulty and length.
Certainly one of the most requested hikes by clients is a hike to one of the two stunning natural pools each offering its own unique charm.
Petit Cul de Sac – typically a more challenging trek for adventurous hikers. The hike involves walking along rocky, uneven coastal paths with a challenging descent down an ocean cliff. Once arrived we find ourselves surrounded by two absolutely stunning, aquamarine pools which are ocean fed by the pounding surf. The spot is magical and the pools are cool, clear and utterly amazing.
Grand Fond – a roaming coastal hike to the shimmering natural pools which are tucked along the southeastern shoreline. One ventures up and down a rocky, uneven coastal path lined with a variety of native flora and local wildlife i.e abet with roaming goats, lizards and small birds of prey. This serene nature hike eventually leads us to the turquoise waters of the natural pools.
We offer a number of off trails hikes with a varying degree of difficulty. These hikes allow us to delve deep into nature and explore stunning landscapes abundantly teaming with local wildlife, exotic native flora and fauna. Many of the hikes are explorations in uncharted, hidden away areas on the island.
These hikes are for those wishing to get an optimal workout with a strong emphasis on Cardio. Most hikes are “on road hikes” involving steep hill work with the occasional “off trail” divergences. One needs to be in good physical condition and has a desire for a strong rigorous workout.
For those predisposed toward a leisurely ramble rather than a full on hike join Elisa on a fascinating historical stroll in and around the port of Gustavia. Learn about the history of the island while also visiting a number of historical sites which represent the islands diverse past.
