See St. Barts from a different point of view - atop your own 4-wheel, automatic, All Terrain Vehicle. A short walk or boat ride from the tender landing (on the opposite side of the harbor) takes you to the vehicles, where you don your helmet (must be worn) and take off to explore the island. Leaving the harbor of Gustavia, your guide in the lead will take the road above the harbor and through St. Bart's villages. The ride makes its way to St. Jean near the airport passing the famous “Col de la Tourmente” where you may come across a plane landing! A great photo stop! Just after the airport, the ATVs will go around the pond of St Jean and climb up the hill that is overlooking Salines.
Continuing via the valley of “Petite Salines”, the ride will arrive in “Grand Fond”, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Dramatic scenery, dominated on the left by the “Morne Vitet”, the highest mountain on the island (286m) with a deep green valley and the blue and white of the raging ocean. The group will continue along the water towards Toiny and later towards Lorient and its famous cemeteries, Saint-Jean and its sea resort style with shops and restaurants, and will make it up to the top of “Lurin” before going down to Gustavia. The ride will go up back on the road and slowly drive down towards Gustavia harbor.
