Your bike riding and hike cruise excursion begin right from the cruise pier in Montego Bay where your guide and transportation are waiting for you. The drive is scenic and travel time is not long to the estate.
What a great way to see the Jamaican countryside! You will start off with a sightseeing walk lead by your guide. He will be giving you all sorts of interesting information, background and history of the estate, Jamaica and the culture. You set the pace...take a leisurely stroll or power up the rolling hills. There is so much to see especially in the canopied tropical forest where you can see numerous varieties of birds and butterflies. Do not forget your camera.
Your hike will continue along Pimento Walk, the trail through the fragrant All-Spice plants that are a reminder of the island's former export item. The smell of the air is heavenly with the wild orchids growing alongside. The terrain is varied with shady trails and lush pastureland. The entire 2-mile circuit takes about 60 minutes with an elevation change of about 300-400ft. Your guide will be pointing out the flora and fauna along the whole route.
Now that you are warmed up, it is time to take it up a level...mountain biking is next! Your guide will lead you on a fun, low key 30-minute bike ride. You will roll past the local farmland, colorful bougainvilleas, gentle rolling hills and pretty countryside. You will be treated to a relaxing stop on the private beach area to refresh and recharge with cold drinks. Enjoy a dip in the warm turquoise blue Caribbean, listen to some reggae music before peddling back to the estate.
Your transportation will take you back to your Montego Bay pier.
Travel time from your pier to the site is included in the overall excursion length: 20 minutes from Falmouth, 45 minutes from Montego Bay and 40 minutes from Ocho Rios each way.
We loved it
My wife and I went on this tour on 10/1/15 and really enjoyed it. If you go on this tour, bring bug spray - the mosquitos were abundant in some areas, and also beware that the trail is not highly manicured, so it's not a casual stroll. But the scenery was beautiful - we climbed to the top of a hill to see a beautiful panorama of Jamaica. The guide, Jerry, was very informative and involved. The biking was on flatter terrain - a ride from the estate headquarters down to the beach, where we paused for a beer, and were supposed to be able to swim for a bit, but the surf was too rough due to the hurricane further north.
Of note, the van ride from Montego Bay was about an hour both ways, which left over an hour and a half walking and hiking, about a 30 minute stop at a roadside restaurant for lunch (not included in the price) and a brief stop at a shop in Montego Bay to shop and take panoramic pictures of Montego Bay from the roof.
Thanks Jerry, for the terrific day in Jamaica!
