The tiny island of Saba has rebuilt the hand-carved step-trails that were once the only link between the island's four villages. Dominica has upgraded a network of trails through rugged mountains into areas with active volcanoes and cascading waterfalls. Excursions range from one-hour town and beach walks to strenuous hikes that require the services of a local guide. So, whether you prefer to take in the historical sites, marketplaces and Dutch buildings in Philipsburg or would rather work up a sweat on the Victor Hugues Trail (8 hours, one way) on Guadeloupe, you'll find something to suit your tastes.
