Bermuda Walking Tours & Hiking
However during summer time, weather in Bermuda can sometimes become quite warm and extremely humid. I won't recommend long walks in such times unless you are a seasoned walker. Irrespective of the time of your walk, I would suggest that you wear a hat, walking shoes and comfortable clothes.
You may also want to bring along a bottle of water and a small towel in case there's a chance to cool down along the way.
The hiking trails and walking tours that I have designed and chosen below, offer wide variations. They are mostly self guided and some with experienced guides.
Here are our favorite walking tours in Bermuda and the best of nature trails for hiking.
I have created this self-guided tour with clear directions on how to explore the beautiful historical town of St George. This is one of the fascinating Bermuda tours on foot. You can always take a scooter, or a public transport or even a horse drawn carriage to complete the tour. You will go back in time and feel how Bermuda used to be centuries back and how it has been able to retain its rich heritage over time. The narrow lanes, old buildings, quaint stores and original architecture are all reflective of a story that Bermuda has been known for since ages. No wonder this town has been accorded the World Heritage Site status by UNESCO.
Here is another self-guided walking tour that I have designed. Like the town of St George, we have walked across the city of Hamilton many times. You will visit many of the famous historical buildings, museums, parks and churches that tell all the story of Hamilton City. I have also indicated the best restaurants to dine in Hamilton. If you follow the instructions in this section, you should be able to easily self guide yourself and cover the best of Hamilton city.
This one is for the sheer beach lovers. Most of the beautiful beaches of Bermuda are locate on its south shore and across the Southampton and Warwick parishes.
There is a lovely sandy trail that runs along the cliff side at a slightly higher level and offering scenic views of the beaches. You can instead choose to walk along the beaches.
Then you can take a dip and swim at the wonderful coves as you pass by them. So this walking tour is not just about hiking and enjoying the blue waters, it's also about combining your walk with swimming and snorkeling at some of the mind blowing water areas. At the end of the hike, you will reach the branch of a famous pub of Bermuda where you can decide to take a drink and have your lunch.
Bermuda Railway trail is probably the most scenic trails I have ever seen in the island. There is no longer railways in Bermuda. But the original railway track has been converted into a beautiful walking and cycling trail. It offers a wonderful way of exploring the island from East to West. Out of 22 miles of the original railway track, you can access about 18 miles as part of the trail today.
If you are in Bermuda on a Sunday and plan to walk, here is a great option. The Walking Club of Bermuda meets every Sunday at 7am and starts a 6-7 mile long walk along some great scenic routes. It's fun and free for visitors. More importantly, you will walk some routes that are known only to the locals and get to experience an intimate part of the islanders' life.
Surprisingly this 21 square mile island has a lot of unspoiled nature and wide diversity of habitat. While the Railway trail does take you through many of such wonderful places, there are a lot more to be explored. With the south and north shore coastlines, reserves, parklands & gardens, forests, caves and pools, Bermuda offers some great nature trails along with native plantations, wide range of birds and array of wildlife.
This guided Bermuda walking tour covers the gardens at Waterville and continues through Paget Marsh, a nature reserve that provides a step back in time to view pre-colonial vegetation over 25 acres of original green.
This is another guided walking Bermuda tour. Spittal pond provides a diversity of habitats and an amazing variety of birds, especially during the migration seasons. It is Bermuda’s largest bird sanctuary and a nature reserve.
This is a 90 minute walking tour of the 35-acre Botanical gardens of Bermuda.
It's a scenic walk through greenery, beautiful golf courses, beaches, forts and so many other wonderful places. You can also plan for a short snorkel.
Here is something unique. Having been through it, I don't think it's really meant for all. If you have passion to explore unspoiled flora and fauna of Bermuda in an Island that is not too far but still very isolated, and conserved to reflect Bermuda's original vegetation, this is the place for you to go.
This is a walking tour guided by a long term resident of Bermuda - Jo Cook. She can also advise you on ways to root out the last nooks and crannies, just when you thought you'd seen it all. These walking tours are for individuals, families and small groups of 2 - 6 people.
Here are some great scenic routes that we love to walk. If you follow the instructions, you will never lose the way. We love these hikes in Bermuda.
