Trinidad’s dynamic and vibrant beat nestles comfortably alongside the more serene Tobago, which offers the chance to take a step back and relax. The twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago offers visitors the best of two worlds. The proximity of the islands to South America has resulted in unusually diverse fauna, particularly the islands’ bird life, with no other area in the West Indies, and few areas of comparable size in tropical America, matching the islands’ spectacular species diversity. Explore on foot and observe along forest tracks and coastal trails – this leisurely holiday has nature at its heart.
On Trinidad we stay firstly in the grounds of the historic Mount St Benedict Monastery. We follow trails up to Mount St Bernard Monastery. From here we take day trips to both the Caribbean and Atlantic coasts, walk in the Arena Forest and visit the Nariva Swamp and wetland to see Yellow-headed Caracara, Yellow-rumped Cacique and Blue-and-yellow Macaw. We’ll take a boat trip on the Caroni Swamp to view Scarlet Ibis and Egrets as they fly in to roost in their hundreds.
We spend three nights at the Asa Wright Nature Centre, a leader in conservation, education and research. With expert guides, we’ll discover local trails and see many of the island’s specialty species of birds and wildlife including huge Tegu Lizards, Channel-billed Toucans, three species of Trogons, Golden-headed Manikins, White-bearded Manikins and Bearded Bellbirds. A walk to the Dunstan Cave to see the mysterious nocturnal Guacharos (Oilbirds) is not to be missed! We can swim in the natural pools and from the centre’s “Terrace” we will enjoy the early morning bird activity at close quarters.
Moving on, we take a short flight to Tobago, then onto Speyside on the north eastern corner of this beautiful island. We’ll walk on unspoilt mountain, rain forest and coastal trails, hopefully to see nesting seabirds such as Red-billed Tropicbirds and Brown Boobies. We’ll also discover a spectacular hummingbird gallery in Speyside that gives amazing opportunities for photographing hummingbirds.

The emphasis of this holiday is firmly on birdwatching. Walks will therefore be short and taken in short sections with plenty of time to view the spectacularly colourful birds of these islands. In the rain forests there are often short sections of steep terrain and, for this reason, the holiday is given a Grade 3. Otherwise, easy walking on level ground will be a feature of a number of days and, on some days, we make use of a coach. You are unlikely to walk more than 4 miles in total on any day and the cumulative ascents and descents will range from minimal up to about 300m.
Our bottom line is happy travellers, and to that end we trust our tour leaders to use the itinerary below as a basis for providing you with a great holiday. We expect our leaders to make adjustments to the itinerary if the weather, group ability or other local conditions make that necessary. There are normally more options available to our leaders than those listed below and one or more of these options may well be chosen. All distances, heights & timings are approximate.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we may unfortunately need to withdraw a tour that is currently confirmed to operate and we therefore reserve the right to cancel your booking. We would always do our utmost to give you plenty of notice should we have to do this. Selected elements of this tour, including local attractions and restaurants, may change at late notice. Please ensure you have valid insurance cover before you travel.

Travel / Arrival UK
Arrive into London Gatwick this morning.
Walks & Excursions
Much of the walking is done on well prepared, well-marked trails and paths, however there can be uneven stretches and natural steps, which are rough underfoot. The walks will be taken at leisurely pace and range from 2.5 - 4 miles, but this can be spread over a full day allowing for stops and time to look at the wildlife and its behaviour and allowing for photographic stops. Some of our days are spent entirely out in the field. There will be some early starts, as the wildlife and birds can best be seen during the coolest part of the day. The hour prior to sunset is again a very good time for viewing, which we will be able to enjoy from our accommodations’ verandas.
Our time on Trinidad will be spent in a flurry of activity with some early starts, full days in the field and evening viewing from verandas or from a boat when we are at Caroni Swamp. Tobago is a little more laid back and as our hotel sits directly on the beach, is a perfect spot for relaxing.
Local Transport Costs
All local transport costs in conjunction with the advertised activity programme are included in the holiday cost. There may be occasions where additional visits or excursions are added to enrich your experience, these will be paid for locally by you if you choose to participate. Local transport can be a mix of private hire coaches, taxis, local buses and ferries depending on the itinerary.
A range of local excursions and activities may be available to book at your destination through a local operator.
We have no involvement in such activities or excursions which are not run, supervised or controlled in any way by
us. Your contract will be with the local activity supplier and we accept no responsibility for their actions or omissions.

non-included entrance fees, optional excursions you may choose to participate in locally and any souvenirs or
additional services such as laundry. A general guideline for lunches and drinks is £10-£20 per person per day.
Currency in Trinidad
The currency in Trinidad & Tobago is the Dollar (TT$). US Dollars are also accepted in many locations. TT Dollars can most easily be obtained at the airport on arrival, either from ATMs of by changing pounds or US dollars.
Holiday Personal Expenditure
There are very little costs to be paid locally in connection with our outlined programme of walks and sightseeing, as the majority of costs are included in the holiday price.

Any optional excursions taken will be at additional cost.
Although entirely at your own discretion, tipping is an important aspect of tourism and hospitality life and expectations are fairly high. In order to simplify tipping, we strongly recommend that you allow your leader to take care of making sure tips are given to hotel and restaurant staff & to local guides and drivers. This will be done using some funds provided by us together with, if you wish, a contribution from you, which he/she will collect during the holiday.

Passports and Visas
General Passport Advice
It is a good idea to carry photocopies of the personal details pages of your passport.
Should you lose your passport, this may assist with the issue of replacement documents
and your return to your home country.
Passport and visa requirements can change at any time. It is your own responsibility to
ensure that you inform yourself from a professionally qualified source on, and comply
with, such requirements.
General travel and destination advice for UK nationals is available from the Foreign and
Commonwealth Office at www.fco.gov.uk/travel
and at www.gov.uk/travelaware.
Passport Information for Trinidad
A passport is required for travel to Trinidad & Tobago, which should be valid for a minimum of six months after your intended return to the UK. British passport holders do not require a visa to enter. You will be required to complete an immigration form on arrival, which asks you to list where you will be staying. You will find the information you need under “Accommodation” in this document.
All breakfasts and buffet dinners are included in the holiday cost. Lunches are included during our stay at the Asa Wright Nature Centre but are not included during the rest of the holiday. For the majority of the days we suggest a packed lunch, which can be obtained from the hotels, or a stop may be made at a local restaurant, supermarket or fruit stall, depending on the day’s itinerary.
Footwear & Kit List
Good quality waterproof walking shoes or trail shoes with a thick, moulded sole with a good tread and a low heel are likely to be all that is required for these holidays. If you are a frequent walker and are comfortable in good quality hiking sandals, these may be adequate for some walks. You can wear lightweight walking boots if you prefer.
General Kit List
Outdoor activities are always safer and more enjoyable if you are prepared.
If you have not travelled with us before the following list might be of use:
- Waterproof jacket (Goretex or similar)
- Fleece or jumper
- Sun hat, sunglasses, lip salve and sun screen
- Swimwear (if appropriate)
- Day sack (this should be able to carry all you would need for the days activity)
- Water bottle - at least 1 litre capacity
- Basic first aid kit
- Reusable Lunchbox
- Walking poles (should you find them useful)
- A good pair of binoculars
- If you have your own birdwatching telescope and tripod, you may find it useful to bring them
This list is not exhaustive and every walker is different and may have their own preference.
The Caribbean has a typical tropical climate with high temperatures and plenty of rainfall, which is why the islands are so lush. There is little seasonal variation in temperature due to the islands location near the equator, but the seasons are determined by the amount of rainfall, and consist of rainy (generally June to October/November), and dry (generally December to May) seasons.
During the wet season, rainfall is usually in the form of short, but heavy, bursts with a high increase in humidity, while the dry season’s rain showers are generally lighter and the humidity is not so intense. Daytime temperatures can reach up to 30°C all year round.
With high temperatures and humidity, you will want to dress for comfort. Light cotton t-shirts, shorts, skirts and trousers are ideal for the day, especially ones that are quick drying so you can rinse them out to use again (saves on packing too!). For the evenings, smart casual attire is fine.
The Caribbean can occasionally experience short, sharp, heavy periods of rain that can occur without warning, leaving trails wet and streams higher than normal. When this happens, for some trails we may need to change the plan at short notice or, for more straightforward trails, it has been very useful in the past to don water/aqua-shoes for short sections where lying water is higher than boot level. These shoes can also be useful in and around rocky areas like waterfalls, for people with sensitive feet when getting in and out of water. It is also useful to carry a small, light towel. You may feel that waterproof trousers are not needed.

insist that you insure with us but we require that you are adequately
insured for the nature of your holiday. You will be unable to
participate in our local walking and other activity programmes
without being able to demonstrate that you have valid travel insurance.
Please ensure that as a minimum your travel insurance policy covers you
for travel to your holiday destinations (country and geographical region)
and for medical expenses, mountain rescue (including helicopter rescue)
and emergency repatriation to your home country in the event of illness
or injury. Your policy should also provide adequate cover for the activities,
included and optional, you are likely to participate in during your holiday.

Whoever you insure with, please ensure that you take full details, and ideally
the policy itself, with you on holiday and provide our tour leader with your
insurer's name, the policy number and emergency assistance contact numbers.

precautions with your credit cards and passport and avoid displays
of wealth such as wearing expensive jewellery or watches.

We're committed to ethical tourism in all our destinations.
Our holidays are designed for you to discover the essence
of the country you are visiting. Travelling in small groups
not only gives you an up close and personal experience of
your destination, but minimises your impact on the immediate
environment. We feel that the most important starting point
to protect the environment is to be out in it.

The Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust
Unlike many tour operators we have our own trust through which RWH Travel’s profits are channelled back into a variety of outdoor, walking-related or environmental conservation projects in the UK. The focus of the Trust’s financial support is Britain’s leading walking charity, The Ramblers, and their role in promoting the benefits and importance of walking to the British public. In addition the Trust welcomes applications for small grants from local organisations in the UK who need support for walking-orientated activities. This includes the establishment of footpaths and bridleways, funding for rebuilding bridges and renovating huts, as well as bursary funding for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for children who could not otherwise afford to do it. Please visit the ‘About Us’ section of our website and click on the Charitable Trust link for more details.
Heart and Sole
We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able
to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives.
Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose
aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries
we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long
term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less
developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way.
See our website for more information and details of some of the
projects we support.
Staying In Touch
Please do provide us with a mobile phone contact number. We will only use this to contact you with important information relating to your holiday arrangements.
Do keep your mobile phones switched on and readily available when travelling to the airport or if delayed in transit so that we can contact you with any last minute information relating to your travel arrangements.
As a matter of courtesy, please switch off your mobile phone during walks, or endeavour to minimise its use. Please also try to minimise the use of mobile devices during group meals.
We welcome all comments about our holidays and value ideas for the future. If you have provided us with an email address we will invite you to complete an online questionnaire or to add feedback to our page on the independent review site 'Feefo'.
