Lying in the middle of the Lesser Antilles island chain, the French Caribbean islands have a bewildering variety of terrain: volcanoes belching out sulphur clouds, luxuriant rainforests, cascading waterfalls, pineapple plantations, thermal springs and both black and white sand beaches - ideal for exploring on a relaxed activity holiday.
Home to over 2000 floral species and on the main migratory route for birds, the French Caribbean is a paradise ideal for activity holidays. Our walking holidays are based on the islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique and both islands have a distinct French flavour - from the familiar yellow post boxes to the baguettes freshly baked every morning. This blend of French sophistication lends the islands a unique ambience in the Caribbean and our walking holiday here lets you kick back and enjoy the joie de vivre as locals enjoy a rum punch under the palm trees or chatter animatedly to each other in the colourful markets.
As you explore the islands on your activity holiday you'll discover Colonial style plantation houses are bright with flamboyant trees, bird of paradise blooms and pink oleander, mango, guava, and banana flourish in the well-tended gardens.
The islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe both have a distinctly French flavour - from familiar yellow post boxes to freshly baked baguettes every morning! Out walking, you'll enjoy verdant volcanic hills, swaying sugarcane, banana plantations and palm-fringed beaches.
