  • Preparation: Hiking in the intense heat of the tropics requires a good level of fitness, and if coming from a cool temperate climate it is advisable to take a few days to acclimatise to the heat before undertaking medium to difficult hikes.

What to Bring - Bequia Hikes

  • Medications: Bring any special medications you need. Please inform your guide of any specific medical conditions you may have in case an emergency arises.

  • Water Bottle: A water bottle that contains at least 2 litres of water. Please make sure the top is on tight and that the bottle does not leak!

  • Camera: Don't forget extra film/cards and spare batteries!
  • Food: Light snacks, nuts or fruit.
  • Foot ware: While hiking boots are advisable for some of the more difficult hikes, most trails can be hiked in good running shoes or rugged strapped sandels.
  • Hat: Many people bring a broad rimmed hat when hiking in the tropics to protest their ears and neck from the intense sun.
The above is by no means a complete or exhaustive list. Your guide will carry emergency/first aid gear.
