Trekkers Hike & Cave Adventures

This tour takes on a mildly, challenging hike through one of the most natural and interesting environs on the island. Formed thousands of years ago as a result of collapsed caves, and now naturally vegetated by numerous tree and plant species, gullies represent the last areas of mature forest vegetation and refuge for wildlife.

They are some of the most beautiful places one can visit and support unique and rare plant life unseen elsewhere on the island. Our experienced local tour guides will take you through “Harris” or “Jack-in-the- Box “Gully; where towering trees, hanging vines, rare palms and unusual rock formation will be the highlight of attention on an eco experience through one of Barbados’s best kept secrets.

After a thrilling yet relaxing hike, you will be able to gain a “deeper experience” of the island, once inside Coles Cave. You will be issued with your helmet and head lamp, and given a safety briefing and a short history of the area and the cave, after which your adventure begins with a rope assisted decent into the cavern, which houses the entrance of Coles Cave. This underground expedition takes you “into the depths” of our island. Once inside, you can marvel at the naturally formed sculptures within the walls of this underground wonder. As you proceed on your penetration of Coles cave, you will trek through streams of refreshing spring water as you listen to the therapeutic sounds of waterfalls filling the naturally formed pools that are found at intervals along the corridor of the cave system. After this unforgettable experience, you will return to the surface for light refreshments of locally made breads and beverages.
