Starting from the highest point on the island, this tour takes hikers down through the beautiful countryside. The views are often spectacular and the opportunity to learn about the island’s history and culture is rewarding.

Highlights:
- Hike downhill past the ruins of a historic sugar plantation (approx. 2 hrs).

Full Description:
A fully narrated bus ride takes you to Loterie Farm where you'll receive a bottle of water and transfer to an open-air safari truck for the ascent to St. Martin's highest point. The views are breathtaking as you look out over 7 neighboring islands and your cruise ship in the distance far below.

With your guide in the lead, you begin the all-downhill trek which takes around 2 hours. These are old trails and you'll see first hand the remnants of the Caribbean's most unlikely sugar plantation which was abandoned in 1848. Along the way, your knowledgeable guide will entertain you with folklore and history of this extraordinary estate and point out and describe the flora and fauna. A rum or fruit punch is served at the end of the hike.
