Start your journey through St. George's, Grenada's capital city. You'll probably find that "city" is a slight embellishment for this quaint town with its red-tiled roofs and aromatic spice markets.
As you head inland, you'll pass through the community of St. Paul’s en route to the Laura Herb & Spice Garden. Here your helpful guide will help teach you about the different spices that are grown on the island.
Continue to the central part of the island where you will spot a variety of plantations growing cocoa, nutmeg and banana on your way to Grand Etang Lake. Here you’ll find yourself in the midst of wild jungles, stunning rain forests, and ancient craters. This cobalt blue lake lies in the crater of an extinct volcano, where the serene waters mirror the verdant surroundings, offering a tranquil escape at a breathtaking 1,900 feet above sea level. Enjoy a refreshing drink at the Visitor Center.
The descent brings you past magnificent hanging carpets of green mountain fern, and through the quaint village of Vendome to Annandale. Disembark the coach for a short walk to a green paradise of rushing water and hanging ferns. You'll see some of Grenada's 450 species of flowering and medicinal plants here.
Continue to Fort Frederick, 800 feet above sea level. This vantage point offers a panoramic view of the horseshoe-shaped harbor, Fort George, a picturesque city and home to Richmond Hill Prison. The construction of Fort Frederick was started by the French in 1779, and finished by the English in 1783.
Return to the St. George's pier via Lowther's Lane.
