Welcome to Guadeloupe


As well as the ‘mainland’ of Guadeloupe, there are a number of small offshore islands including Les Saintes, Marie-Galante and La Désirade, each of which gives visitors its own taste of Guadeloupe’s yesteryear. These are some of the most evocative and untouched destinations in the French Antilles, and shouldn't be missed.

Sightseeing Tour : Sugar cane and rum

Welcome to the North of Grande-Terre, also known as the land of sugar cane. Originating in New Guinea and brought to the Antilles in the 17th century, sugar cane, a perennial plant and member of the grass family that can grow up to five metres tall, is now the second most common crop in Guadeloupe after the banana. You will be hiking through a sugar cane field until you reach the shore, following the old railroad, which was used to transport sugar from the plantation to the storage area on the port. The road will take you then to northern end of Guadeloupe: ‘la Grande Vigie Headland’. Located at the north end of Grande-Terre island, around six kilometres from Anse-Bertrand, this wild site reminiscent of Brittany offers nature-lovers some magnificent viewpoints over the high limestone cliffs of Grande-Terre, and in fine weather the islands of La Désirade, Antigua and Montserrat! On a footpath around the headland you can explore this impressive natural heritage. The vegetation, exposed to the wind and sea spray, is arid and surprisingly similar to that of the Mediterranean.. Next we’ll walk through the ruins of an old sugar factory: walls, chimney, mill. It was the first on this part of the island to have a well and less suffer from the dry season and lack of water. From cane, you end up with sugar but also a famous drink: Rum. Everything you want to know from the making, to distillation and aging. Our famous agricultural rum won’t be a secret anymore. We will finish the day with the visit of a rum factory, its history, its ways and a little tasting of rum, aged rum and local punch and liquor.
