BARBADOS - hiking
Situated in the heart of the island on one of the highest ridges, at 1004 ft above sea level, with probable the most spectacular picturesque landscape views sweeping down to the East Coast of Barbados.
On the well-maintained grounds at Highland stands a gazebo which houses a well stocked bar and it is from here that your hike will begin and end!
This is a nature hike that is well suited to most levels of fitness!
Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing - shorts and shirts are recommended. Don't forget your camera and sun block.
We will take you through small quaint villages, natural flora and fauna (which has to be seen to be believed!!) and up to experience the highest point on the island. Along the way, see if you can spot that "not so elusive" Green Monkey troops that inhabit the woods around this picturesque area.
Return to Highland to a well-earned cool complementary drink. While sipping your drink, soak up the stunning ambiance of this magnificent place we call Highland!!!
Our friendly, knowledgeable guides will let you take
Hikes at your pace and pace of your group, so ensuring that you will see
and experience all the treasures of this small corner of paradise.
Enjoy Barbados horse riding, visit Ocean Echo Stables nestled in the picturesque east coast countryside between Martins Bay & Bath beach, along the coastal road
(we provide transportation if necessary).
Come and relax on one of our six friendly, sure-footed horses while discovering some of the most spectacular scenery in the island amidst sleepy fishing villages and unspoilt bays. We are set in close proximity to places of interest such as Codrington’s College and St. John’s Church in an area rich in history and culture.Contact us email firstname.lastname@example.org
