New Lesser Antilles Land and Sea Adventure
We have just launched a new two-centre trip for St Lucia and Antigua. The itinerary includes two guided hikes and two additional half-day land or sea activities per island, with four nights spent at Antigua’s newest luxury hotel, Sugar Ridge Resort, and four nights at Marigot Bay on the West Coast of St Lucia, both offering contemporary suites, luxurious spas, sweeping vistas and hikes from the doorstep. There’s even the chance to add a further four nights on a third island, Nevis, and combine guided hikes with circular cycle rides, open water swimming and tours of Charlestown’s sugar plantations.
Whilst at Sugar Ridge Resort, guests can choose to take part in snorkelling, kayaking (paddling amongst the lush mangrove inlets of the North Sound Marine Park) and cycle tours as well as two guided island walks, from the iconic Boggy Peak route taking in Mount Obama and a hike around Nelson’s historic Dockyard and English Harbour, to a more challenging walk leading from Walling’s Dam in the rainforest to Rendezvous Bay on the coast to enjoy swimming on a deserted beach. Back at the hotel, guests can take part in yoga classes in The Shed; a new raised yoga studio with open sides and sea views.
At Marigot Bay, guests can choose to swing above the canopy on guided ziplining tours through 1250 acres of protected rainforest, scuba dive through reefs and shipwrecks at Anse Cochon Bay and enjoy two guided island walks including a hike to the top of Gross Piton, the highest of the Pitons, as well as a cross-country hike from the Des Cartiers Rainforest in the East to the Edmond Rainforest in the West with the chance to discover forests, towering trees and endemic wildlife including St Lucia Parrots, all with magnificent views of Mt. Gimie, St. Lucia’s highest peak.
The eight night itinerary is priced from £1999 per person based on two sharing accommodation on a B&B basis including four guided hikes and two half-day land or sea activities at both Sugar Ridge Resort and Marigot Bay. A flight-inclusive price (with flights between Gatwick-Antigua, St Lucia-Gatwick and Antigua-St Lucia) is available from £2699 per person. Or, a twelve night itinerary incorporating Nevis is available from £4599 per person.
