Enjoy Guadeloupe’s stunning natural beauty up close by walking to Crayfish Falls, strolling through a fragrant garden and then discovering how rum is made on a nearby plantation.

Depart from the pier and drive west onto Basse-Terre, the less developed of the main islands that comprise butterfly-shaped Guadeloupe. Upon arriving in sprawling Guadeloupe National Park, you will enjoy a leisurely walk to Crayfish Falls, known as Cascade des Ecrevisses on French Guadeloupe. The name comes from the crayfish that inhabit the pond at the base of the gently cascading waters of the Corossol River.

Following your visit, you will stop at nearby Le Domaine de Valombreuse, a fragrant floral garden boasting hundreds of species of tropical plants. While meandering through the serene 20-acre oasis, you may see brightly colorful heliconia, exotic varieties of ginger, and blooming birds of paradise punctuating the lush landscape.

Fruit-bearing cocoa trees tower overhead, a reminder that Guadeloupe has been a chocolate producer since the 17th century. You might also catch sight of some wild goats that are often seen wandering freely about the property. If you begin wondering what it’s like to live in such an exotic environment, visiting nearby Longueteau Estate will more than satisfy your curiosity.

Fields of sugar cane, the source of the distinctive rum produced here, surround the lovely colonial home. After walking the magnificent grounds, you will learn about the distilling process and sample one of the premium rums. You will then drive back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes just over 2-hours of easy to moderate walking. There will be some uneven and natural terrain to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned only to participate to the extent of their personal stamina and ability and may make arrangements with the guide to not participate in any guided walking portions of the tour.
