Enjoy discovering Aruba's natural side on this tour that showcases three distinctively different attractions that are all a direct result of the wonders of nature.

Traveling by coach, you will first set-off for the Butterfly Farm, where upon arrival you will step into a tropical garden teeming with butterflies. During your visit, observe the fascinating life cycle of the butterfly as your expert guide explains the butterfly's habits and the miracle of metamorphosis. You will surely be charmed by these beautiful and whimsical creatures as they gracefully fly about.

Rejoining your coach, you will make your way to the Aruba Aloe Factory, en route passing the island's famous divi-divi trees. Always pointing in a south-westerly direction due to natural trade winds that blow from the north-east, these iconic trees act as a natural compass on the island. Arriving at the factory, you will enjoy a tour of the factory and learn how aloe is grown, processed, and turned into skin-care products.

Continuing on, you will next head to Aruba's rugged north coast and the Baby Natural Bridge, which has been carved by the surf into the solid coral and limestone. You can also view the remains of the original Natural Bridge which collapsed in 2005. Afterwards, you will travel back to the cruise ship pier. Time permitting, a stop will be made in Oranjestad for those who wish to exit the tour and do some exploring on their own. Those who elect to leave the tour in Oranjestad will be responsible for making their own way back to the ship, at their own expense.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of walking. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Light-weight, casual clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
