The island of Grenada has a unique charm with a fascinating history and spectacular scenery. Grenada has rainforest covered mountains, fertile valleys and stretches of fine sandy beaches. Known as the 'Spice Island' because of its production of nutmeg, cocoa, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and vanilla, the island is also home to a fantastic range of tropical and subtropical exotic plants encouraged by the perfect year round warm climate and rich volcanic soil. The island's gardeners have traditionally surrounded their homes with colourful selections of shrubs and flowering plants many of which are shown at the world famous 'Grenada at Chelsea' exhibit.
The Grenada Garden Tour special departures in 2016 will give guests the chance to experience glorious public and private gardens of Grenada. Orchids, anthuriums, heliconias and many more tropical plants, as well as spices, will be at their best and in full display. Suzanne Gaywood, the renowned gardener and one time coordinator of the 'Grenada at Chelsea' exhibits, will be leading the tours in November 2016 to add further insight into this beautiful island. Itineraries also include cultural and history tours and visits to places, such as the picturesque capital St George's. You will see exotic plants and wildlife in native habitats such as The Grand Etang rainforest, waterfalls and national parks .
