What To Expect

Old Road Bay
Old Road is an old fishing village. In this area is a well know seafood restaurant, Sprat Net and a fish market. A short distance away your guide will drive off of the main road close to one of the health centres into the area of Wingfield Estate. You'll pass the Petroglyph of the Amerindians.

• Admission Ticket Free

Romney Manor
As you drive past the Romney Batik (Caribelle Batik) get a slight glimpse of its gardens enroute to the forest.

A short distance from Romney you will begin to see the pathway of the forest. Here you will disembark the vehicle and the guide will give a briefing and issue walking sticks. As you begin your two hour walk (one into one out of the forest) the sighting of the Green Vervet Monkey and various species of birds will be seen along with the different types of flora.

Sometimes the monkeys stay out of sight especially at certain times of the day.

The tour guide will introduce you to some of our medicinal plants/trees such as Trumpets Bush, Black Sage & Sour Sop just to name a few whilst trekking through this exotic part of the forest. Some of our plants and trees have grown in height and thickness with lush buttress roots e.g. Citrus, Saman, and Locus Trees.

This tour is suited for persons of medium physical level (level 3 out of 5). One should be able to walk up hill, through narrow paths, over stones, small rocks and have no physical challenges. If uncertain it is always best to contact the supplier before booking.

A light snack of pastry and beverage will be served prior to departure for your hotel or port.

RECOMMEND: Walk with bottled water, wear durable sole sneakers, sunscreen, light trousers or shorts just above knees, T or polo shirts, blouse or any light weight top with short sleeves.

This is enroute to the forest. This was a past estate where tobacco and indigo was orignally produced in the 1600s but sugar became more successful and profitable product of export. Today remnants of an aqueduct, chimney, mill house (for crushing cane) and a rum distillery discovered in 2013. Part of this area can be seen as you journey into the rainforest.

Beautiful hike
ahoppis2, 30-05-2019
We were lucky to have the Owner who took good care of us on this trip. Our ship docked at a different port and he had people at both ports looking for us. Then we found out he was our tour guide as well, once we were gathered up with everyone. At any rate it would be considered an easy hike if you are in shape and I would say it was a moderate hike for me (not in shape) there were a few times my daughter helped me over a long (darn short legs) etc. The tour was beautiful!
Something for Everyone

For lovers of nature, history, herbalism or distilleries, this is the right tour! We soaked up all we could learn, enjoyed the time hiking in the rainforest, and walked away with a new appreciation for natural medicine. Our knowledgable guide had so much to share. We were pleasantly surprised with the "extra" things he went out of his way to show us. This half-day tour is a good option for those who arrive by ship. The timing allowed us a few remaining hours on shore near the port to explore/shop/dine on our own.
Great nature walk - recommended

Mr Rogers fitted in this rainforest walk for us at short notice and we were so glad it was possible. He was relaxed, chatty and put us at ease, adapting the tour to our particular interests (my husband is a naturalist). We walked through the rainforest for more than three hours as he pointed out fruit and nut trees, butterflies and evidence of the local vervet monkeys. It was fascinating to hear about the use of the plants, knowledge which is still held largely orally and which he has learned from older community members and family. The impression came over of a living pharmacy that people would walk into to get the cures they needed - some still used by older people today. It was quite different from the UK woods that we know!
This was a manageable walk over rough paths, and we chose to climb a steep bank to the ridge (an easier alternative was available). I was grateful for the advice of an earlier reviewer to take the offered stick for the walk.
We ended up with a welcome glass of cold juice and a tasty coconut pastry treat before being taken back to our meeting point in the open-sided buses used on the island. If you are averagely/reasonably fit and into nature, this tour is highly recommended.
It is on the same site as the zip-wire experience if you fancy an overhead view of the rainforest as well! (completely separate tour) We did not but others were buzzing past overhead and having a great time by the look of it.

This trip was wonderful. Our guide Nick took us on a 2 hour hike with just two other people. He was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He also helped me through the more difficult parts of the hike. Be sure to use the walking sticks provided. Highly recommend this excursion.
Thriling
