Sail from Barbados to Guadeloupe, Dominica, French Martinique and Bequia on the world's largest tall ship

News that Tradewinds' Golden Horizon is relocating to the Caribbean for the Winter could not have been better timed - the thought of island-hopping across the sun-drenched West Indies is exactly the tonic we all need after such a turbulent year.

After a day at sea, it's the magical islands of little-known Guadeloupe that you'll visit first on this exciting voyage, followed up by the natural wonders of Dominica - with its majestic mountains, cloud rainforests and spectacular waterfalls.

Enjoy a day's R&R before sampling French Martinique's beaches, botanical gardens and first-class rum, then sailing to the mecca of Bequia, before returning to Barbados.

Plus, you can choose to combine this amazing itinerary with Golden Horizon's two other Caribbean voyages: Undiscovered Caribbean and Icons of the Caribbean, and enjoy a discounted rate.** Whichever you choose, you will start out with a night in a four-star hotel in Barbados giving you a chance to acclimatise before setting on a round-trip sailing from Bridgetown.

You can be as active as you like, with a choice of amazing optional excursions - from snorkelling trips, amazing dives, kayaking among stunning islets and tropical beaches, to rum distillery tastings, botanical gardens, barefoot beach bars and rainforest walks.

And you will enjoy the thrill of travelling on the world's largest square-rigged sailing vessel - Golden Horizon will operate under sail whenever possible - as well as relaxing in the on-board spa, pools, marina (complete with water sports), gym, and enjoying local delicacies, lectures and entertainment.
