Hiking on St. Helena

Explore one of Earth’s most far-off islands the old-fashioned way: by foot

Hiking on St. Helena

Region: Antarctica

Destinations: St. Helena

A lowland-and-highland hiker’s view of Saint Helena

It’s quite the thrill to visit one of the most remote islands on the planet, but it’s quite another to plant your own two feet on it. The tropical volcanic island of Saint Helena offers you both. Uninhabited until its discovery by Portuguese explorers in 1502, Saint Helena features hiking options that range anywhere from gentle backcountry strolls to arduous treks into deep valleys, isolated bays, and along cliff paths that open onto spectacularly verdant views. You can find detailed descriptions of this island’s numerous hiking routes in such guidebooks as Exploring St. Helena: A Walker’s Guide, by Laurence Carter and Ian Matheson.
