Your scenic four-hour tour offers plenty of opportunities to take postcard-worthy photos of Antigua's spectacular coastlines and tropical terrain with a hike along Wallings Dam, where you'll get to admire its architectural excellence while hiking up a series of inclines. This exciting excursion also provides convenient water pouches, bottled water, roundtrip transportation to and from your meeting location, and an expert local guide who will take you along a light-to-moderate trail that ranges up the Sherkely mountain range to admire the rolling hills below.

Continue your tropical adventure and get ready to capture the stunning beauty of the 700-plus acres of rolling hills that sit below the Sherkeley Mountain Range. This iconic mountain range stretches just over nine miles long and features panoramic views of the English Harbour and countryside views. It's even home to famous peaks, such as 1,198-foot high Signal Hill and 1,319-foot high Boggy Peak: Antigua's highest mountain peak that was once known as Mount Obama in honor of the United States' 44th president. Take in the calming aroma of lemongrass along this challenging trail as you enjoy coastal and bay views along this tropical trail.

Wrap up your guided hike and beach excursion with a stop at the famed Rendezvous Bay. Here, you'll find a relaxing beach that was once an important battle site between the French and English. Relax on its golden sands and catch stunning Caribbean coastline views or go for a dip in the beautiful bay waters for the perfect end to your guided excursion.
