Bermuda Walking Tours
Surprisingly this 21 square mile island has a lot of unspoiled nature and
wide diversity of habitat. While the Railway trail does take you through
many of such wonderful places, there are a lot more to be explored. With the
south and north shore coastlines, reserves, parklands & gardens, forests,
caves and pools, Bermuda offers some great nature trails along with native
plantations, wide range of birds and array of wildlife.
This guided Bermuda walking tour covers the gardens at Waterville and
continues through Paget Marsh, a nature reserve that provides a step back in
time to view pre-colonial vegetation over 25 acres of original green.
This is another guided walking Bermuda tour. Spittal pond provides a
diversity of habitats and an amazing variety of birds, especially during the
migration seasons. It is Bermuda’s largest bird sanctuary and a nature
This is a 90 minute walking tour of the 35-acre Botanical gardens of
It's a scenic walk through greenery, beautiful golf courses, beaches, forts
and so many other wonderful places. You can also plan for a short snorkel.
Here is something unique. Having been through it, I don't think it's really
meant for all. If you have passion to explore unspoiled flora and fauna of
Bermuda in an Island that is not too far but still very isolated, and
conserved to reflect Bermuda's original vegetation, this is the place for
you to go. NOTE: The island is now a restricted area due to
its sensitivity towards recently restored habitats for critically endangered
species and the national bird Cahow (Bermuda
Petrel). You should work through Bermuda's Department of Conservation for
such hikes and tours.
Hi, In Bermuda you won't usually find private or personal walking guides
because of low demands. Most individual guides are taxi drivers and offer
private taxi tours or van tours. Few others offer guided short walking tours
for groups and only on set paths like in St. George's Town where they
specialize. Having said that, here are couple of persons/tour companies who
offer private walking tours (suggest you call them up and talk instead of
sending an email).
1) Tony (Anthony Young) of Paradise Tours. He conducts walking tours all by
himself and also does personalized walking tours. A very knowledgeable man
who loves to explore the nooks and crannies of the island.
Phone: (441) 777 1759.
2) Ashley Harris of Hidden Gems of Bermuda. While she conducts several set
tours of caves and jungles, she herself is a great guide and has other
guides in her team. They do private tours as well. You can approach her to
find out if they can fit your requirements. Phone: (441) 704 0999; (441) 236

... I thought it would be very nice to hike around Bermuda. Much to my
surprise, this was very difficult, if not impossible.
