Bermuda Lectures and Tours
Duration: Half Day
One of the best ways to appreciate Bermuda’s rich history, culture and wildlife is to venture off the beaten track with local tour guides, who can make the experience all the more richer through their extensive knowledge and personal stories of the island. There are many lectures and tours to choose from whilst you are here. You just need to decide on where and when you want to go, along with your preferred method of transport, and the rest will be left up to the experts.
From old railways trails and historic ruins to beautiful nature reserves and breathtaking coastline, Bermuda has so much to offer the avid explorer that it’s hard to know where to start. Of course, you can visit the popular tourist spots on your own, which are certainly worth seeing, but if you take a private tour with an experienced guide, you will gain a much deeper appreciation of the archipelago’s treasures. Various walks and talks from renowned historians and naturalists cover all aspects of Bermuda, including architecture, geology, flora and fauna, so the choices are endless.
The best ways to explore Bermuda has to be on foot or by bike and there are many beautiful walking and nature trails across the island. Some of the most scenic routes can be found along the old Bermuda Railway Trail, which spans almost the entire length of the island from St George Parish in the east to Somerset Parish in the west, via the city of Hamilton, Bermuda’s capital. Almost 40 years after the railway line closed in 1947, the Bermuda Government transformed the 22-mile trail into a public walkway and cycle path for both locals and tourists to enjoy. Due to its natural beauty and historical importance, the area was also designated a National Park in 2000. The trail is broken up into different sections, which each boast their own unique gems, although only 18 miles of the Railway's original 22 are accessible today.
Some of the highlights you can expect along the way include magnificent panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Great Sound; historic architecture such as Gibbs Hill Lighthouse and beautiful beaches such as Shelley Bay and Whale Bay. Guided tours of the trail offer a wonderful, alternative way to appreciate the coastal and inland beauty of Bermuda.
Other tour options in Bermuda combine city sightseeing with museums, art galleries and beautiful botanical gardens. And don’t forget snorkeling and underwater tours, which will introduce you to the archipelago’s majestic undersea landscapes. Because everything is arranged for you, you can spend less time planning during your holiday in Bermuda and more time actually enjoying what the island has to offer.
