HIGHLIGHT

*DISCOVER THE STUNNING NATURE OF THE ISLAND         
*SAMPLE DELICIOUS FOOD
*VISIT A BEAUTIFUL VINEYARD
*UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY WITH THE TUNNELS AND CASTLES
*HIKE INCREDIBLE PLACES

DAY 1

Arrival at Jersey Airport in the morning.

Your host will then pick up the car rental and you will start discovering this incredible island.

You will first head to the West part of the island. For wild, surfy sand you can’t beat the five-mile expanse of St. Ouen’s Bay, the most striking feature of Jersey’s western edge.  You will walk along the sea wall and watch surfers ride big Atlantic waves and venture into the beach’s tumbling dunes rich in wildlife, and located within Jersey's Coastal National Park. This moderate walk is about 6.8 miles and has many foodie stops along the way to have a bite.

After that, it will be time to check-in at your hotel.

Accommodation: 4* Hotel

DAY 2

After a great breakfast, you will start the day with some culture and visit the war tunnels. During World War II, the Crown left Jersey defenceless and the Island became occupied by German forces. Jersey War Tunnels are a product of five long years of occupation; they bore witness to the particular cruelty of the Nazi regime. Dug deep into the hillside by forced and slave workers from nations across Europe, they now contain an underground collection of thought-provoking exhibits that tell the fascinating story of Jersey’s occupation from resistance, through to starvation, then eventual liberation. This is a must-see to understand this island better.

From there it is time to finally taste all the great products and food this island has to offer. Let's face it, Jersey is really popular for its fresh food. During 2.5-3h, in small lanes, you will be eating and chatting your way through the delicious produce of the island and discover local eateries. Local delicacies, food and wine won't have any secrets for you anymore!

Accommodation: 4* Hotel

DAY 3

After your breakfast, you will discover Mount Orgeuil Castle, one of the world's finest example of a medieval castle. Take in breathtaking views of the French coast as you delve into the network of staircases, towers and secret rooms to discover hidden treasures. Explore the network of staircases, towers and secret rooms to discover gruesome tales and hidden treasures. Learn the story of the Castle through specially commissioned artwork, climb the turrets to find the medieval ‘wheel of urine’, and make your way if you dare into the cellar to study the 'witchcraft' exhibit. This is one of Jersey's iconic image and is overlooking the cute little village of Gorrey.

Afternoon Free

Accommodation: 4* Hotel

DAY 4

Morning Free

In the afternoon, it is time to discover La Mare wine estate, established in 1972. During a guided tour you will be taken around the beautiful vineyards, orchards, the Cognac style distillery and the chocolate production kitchen. The estate is a fascinating combination of history and tradition and a perfect place to also enjoy a traditional afternoon tea overlooking the vineyards. What a great way to end this weekend!

It is now time to head back to the airport to go back home, we hope you enjoyed this fabulous weekend Girls on Travel!
