Hiking and Yoga
For those who love hiking and yoga and want to base themselves on one island this the ideal trip. It includes four hikes in Antigua so a great opportunity to see different sides to the island plus four individual yoga sessions during your eight-day stay at the amazing new yoga shed at Sugar Ridge. We also offer a shorter version based on five nights which includes three yoga sessions and three hikes.
Soon after your international flight lands at Antigua’s new international airport terminal you will be met in arrivals by your Hike Caribbean representative and whisked away for your first night at the luxury Sugar Ridge Resort. Why not take a dip into one of our pools, then eat up in Carmichael’s restaurant watching the sunset across Montserrat and the Caribbean Sea?
We start you off with a short morning nature hike out of Sugar Ridge as an opportunity to see your surroundings with another evening yoga session in The Shed as the sun goes down.
The first proper hike of your holiday. Your guide takes you out of Sugar Ridge soon after breakfast and through steep bush and forest where you will see signs of old plantation buildings and a variety of trees and plants which your guide will help you identify. Finally, towards the top you join a small tarmac road which leads up to the highest point on the island. You can peak through the trees and catch glimpses of the coastline and the interior of the island.
A rest day from hiking so why not try the Aveda Spa at Sugar Ridge, take a trip to the beach or a day out in the capital St Johns? Make sure you’re back in time though for another sunset yoga session in The Shed.
Today we take you on a morning hike from Wallings Dam in the South-Western rainforest of the islands down through forest, then woodland and bush finally reaching the ocean at Rendezvous Bay close to Falmouth Harbour. After a dip in the sea or some sunbathing on the deserted beach you then hike back up to the Dam where you can have a go on the rainforest ziplines if you’re feeling brave!
Another day off from hiking so more opportunity to relax or see some more of the island. Again, though, make sure you are back from your sunset yoga session at The Shed in Sugar Ridge.
Your final full day in Antigua and in the afternoon, we take you on a guided hike of the historic English Harbour area, including a short boat ferry across the bay to Pigeon beach. From here you will hike up to Shirley Heights to see the sunset and maybe enjoy a well-earned rum punch at the bar with its amazing views of the harbour and the coastline.
Time to say goodbye but not before one final yoga session this time as the sunrises over the Caribbean. We transfer you back to the international terminal for your flight home though we suggest you have a quick dip in the pool at Sugar Ridge and soak up the last drops of Caribbean sunshine before you make your way home!
