Enjoy an in-depth tour of the highlights of Martinique's northwestern coastal region by boat, tram and motor coach.

What better way to explore scenic northwest Martinique than to see it from every angle? During the first hour or so, you will cruise up the dramatic coastline, enjoying lively music, dancing and icy-cold beverages along the way. The sights on the way to St. Pierre are much like those Christopher Columbus saw when he landed in Le Carbet in 1502. Nearly four centuries later, Paul Gauguin lived and painted here, inspired by the glorious scenery.

Upon landing in Sainte-Pierre, you will board a tram to tour the village. Tragically, it was devastated by the eruption of Mount Pelée in 1902, killing almost the entire population of 30,000 people. Learn about the fascinating details in the Volcano Museum, where the story is told through photos, artifacts and exhibits.

Next, you will board a motor coach, your third mode of transportation on this tour. A scenic drive through a rainforest brings you to the Church of Balata, which sits on a hill overlooking Fort de France and the bay. The church was built in 1925 as a miniature replica of the Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Paris.

After taking in the considerable sights, your coach will transport you back to the pier in Fort de France where your tour concludes.

Please note: This tour includes a limited amount of walking; however, there are steps to negotiate to enter and exit the tour boat and some uneven ground in Sainte-Pierre. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. As the tour travels over winding roads, it may not be suitable for those who suffer from motion sickness. Light-weight, casual clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; insect repellant and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Cameras are not permitted in the Sainte-Pierre Museum. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
