Getaway at the heart of Martinique

from 2190€ (air fares included)

Hiking - Grade 2 (Group trip)


Pearl of the Caribbean, imbedded in the arc of the West Indies, Martinique is a land of hiking, rich in an exuberant and generous biotype, shaped by a topography both soft and rugged. It is split between a tropical and arid climate. The startling disparity will welcome you and will lead you into the heart of an original and authentic cultural mix, in the course of giant forests, hidden mangroves where silence is king, or cliffs brushed by the Atlantic, to the delicious Creole flavour of its dishes or a restorative rum. To suit your mood, cradled by the smoothness of the trade winds, immersed in its elegant perfumes, the coastline will reveal all of its wonders to you: do not forget your snorkel and mask because it is as beautiful below water as above …
