Guadeloupe activity holiday in the Caribbean
Description of Guadeloupe activity holiday in the Caribbean
This Guadeloupe activity holiday is a twelve day, tailor made trip for those who love to be on the water, in the water or under the water. The water being the most crystal clear Caribbean of course. With plenty of time to exercise those land legs too, hiking through its rainforest or volcanic terrain.
The itinerary below is an example of adventures we recommend most highly, as we work closely with expert local guides to take you sea kayaking around Saint Francois, diving around the island’s coral reef or embarking on a catamaran cruise around the Petite-Terre archipelago.
We include a car rental in this holiday package so that you can not only enjoy guided adventures but head off to the many wonderful spots on this island independently. The combination of natural heritage and Creole cultural heritage makes for an idyllic island trip on Guadeloupe. With wonderful places to rest your head too – the first being an ecolodge at St Francois, and the second a charming ‘gite’ like accommodation on the other side of the island in Deshaies.
PlanetOur agency tries to promote eco-friendly activities which pose no harm to environment. Our holidays have a very strong focus on nature and the environment.
The island of Guadeloupe is full of nature that is worth preserving. A land of conservation, the archipelago is home to 4 nature reserves, and as you walk along the 300 km of hiking trails, you will see waterfalls, rivers, and tropical flowers all hidden in a lush forest, dominated by the Soufrière volcano.
Discover the beautiful nature of Guadeloupe and wander through botanic gardens, climb a volcano or go canyoning. All these activities can be booked as guided tours and our local guides are happy to accompany you. They will make sure you do not harm the environment while discovering the splendid nature during your activities.
Our clients will be accommodated in self-catering cottages. The Ecolodge is eco-responsible by minimizing its impact on the planet. Thus, the timber comes from sustainable managed forests, rainwater is recovered, organic waste reused, selective sorting done, fauna and flora preserved. We encourage our clients to pursue the ecological lifestyle while cooking or visiting. The suggested accommodations respect the French ecological norms :
- protect the environment - its flora, fauna and landscapes
- conserve natural resources - from office to destination
- minimise pollution - through noise, waste disposal and congestion
We focus our guest’s attention on local efforts to preserve flora and fauna and we like to think holidays significantly contribute to raising awareness for the environment. We ask our guests to be aware of their electricity and hot water consumption when they travel with us. We advise our guests about local regulations and protected areas at each destination.
Rental cars are the best means of transport for our clients to make the most of their stay on the island of Guadeloupe. However, we encourage them to leave the car parked and to go on biking or hiking tours to reduce their ecological footprint and to discover the Caribbean in an authentic way that brings them closer to nature.
Our office minimizes the use of paper by using internet, emails and for marketing purposes we also make use of websites. Our vouchers are electronic to avoid massive use of paper. When we have to use paper, we use the APUR paper, and our Brother’s cartridges are brought to the recycle center, which has a partnership with CoolEarth
PeopleOur aim is to offer customers a chance to discover a secret 'France' by offering original itineraries in the French Caribbean as well.
All the accommodations are locally owned businesses and work responsibly to minimize the ecological impact.
