Itinerary

Itinerary

Day 1 – We travel from the UK to Guernsey on Condor Ferries high speed ferry service before transferring to our hotel in delightful St Peter Port.

Day 2 - Today we travel by ferry for a full day excursion to the Isle of Sark. Nestled between Guernsey and Jersey and considered by many as the crown jewels of the Channel Islands, we escape the hustle and bustle of modern life on our visit to this unique island. With spectacular scenery, beautiful bays, coastal paths and cliff top views, this car-free island is a peaceful and tranquil haven. On arrival we will take a ride to the top of the island on the ‘toast-rack’, the tractor drawn bus, to the main town square and the day is free to explore at your leisure before our return journey back to the harbour in the afternoon. 

Day 3 – Our full day excursion today reveals the highlights of this glorious island from its uniquely stunning coastline, breath-taking cliff top views, ancient look-out towers, rolling countryside and centuries of rich history.  We visit the Little Chapel, beautifully decorated with seashells, pebbles and broken china and designed to recreate the miniature version of the famous grotto and basilica in Lourdes, France. Our tour also includes the German built naval observation tower of Pleinmont for stunning views of the south coast and the restored German gun battery. After a visit to Guernsey Pearl our tour continues to some of Guernsey’s favourite beaches including Coco Bay & Pembroke Bay. 

Day 4 – Today is at leisure to enjoy the wonders of this enchanting island. Maybe visit Hauteville House where Victor Hugo wrote Les Miserables or explore medieval Castle Cornet with magnificent views of the whole East coast of Guernsey and the islands of Herm, Sark and Alderney.  Take a stroll along the lively high street in St Peter Port with well-known UK brands as well as boutiques and delicious eateries or head over to the Old Quarter, where you’ll find a treasure trove of independent shops selling art, antiquities, jewellery and souvenirs. And don’t forget all your shopping on the island is VAT free! 

Day 5 – This morning we embark the Travel Trident ferry for our short 20 minute boat ride from St Peter Port for our ½ day excursion to the paradisiacal island of Herm. A peaceful oasis with long stretches of unspoilt beach framed by turquoise waters, sandy cliff paths, local pods of dolphins and Europe’s most southerly puffin colony - there really is no place like Herm. With no cars and no crowds it’s the perfect destination for rest and relaxation. We return to Les Rocquettes in the afternoon for free time to enjoy the hotel’s facilities or the local area. 

Day 6 – Today we say goodbye to glorious Guernsey and make our return journey home.
