Discover the French Caribbean island of Martinique, the Isle of Flowers, where Napoleon's Empress Josephine was born. Bustling Fort de-France is its capital, and where you’ll find the historic fort, the Grande Marché and cathedral. Here our island walks take us from the northern Caravelle peninsula, with its extensive plantation ruins and Château Dubuc, south to Anse d’Arlet with beautiful beaches and waterside restaurants.
Some of our tours take a boat trip along the island’s western coast and admire the stunning views of Mt Pelée, which dominates the island. The volcano’s eruption in 1902, and the destruction that resulted, was described as the worst volcanic disaster of the 20th century. The eruption killed about 30,000 people and completely destroyed the city of Saint-Pierre at that time, the largest city on the island.
