An easy nature walk & excellent intro to Barbados' culture


Enjoy a 3-hour nature walk with me, along a trail that shows visitors a variety of the island's natural, cultural, and historical sites.

Humpback whales passed through the waters of Barbados 100 years ago and we have witnessed a partial return. Learn about the whaling industry of old from Victor your guide. It's even possible that you may be visiting at the right time to see these magnificent denizens of the deep enjoying themselves offshore.

The optional Whim Adventure section of the trail is for the more adventurous, sure-footed hikers. Scrambling over boulders and walking upon uneven surfaces all the way is the order of the day.

Your walk begins in the quaint commercial center of Speightstown, and heads inland to an area where the commercial area gives way to a small residential area called Round De Town, and from there to the natural environment of the Whim.

Under the tree canopy of this peaceful and cool section of the Whim your guide Victor will tell you about the geology of Barbados.

A Recent Review of this tour

My husband and I visited Barbados to learn more about my ancestors who lived there 300 years ago. Victor put together a tour for us which included a special visit to the Arlington Museum, cemeteries, and even the building in Speightstown which was the family home! His knowledge of the history was excellent. He also took us see the scenic spots along the north which increased our appreciation for the beauty of Barbados. We plan to return and will definitely request another tour with Victor!
