Half-day Hike to the top of Mount Obama, the highest point in Antigua


Embark on a challenging and rewarding half-day hike of Mount Obama and learn more about the local plant life, while taking in spectacular views of the island.


1/2 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Dec


All Levels


  • Enjoy a challenging hike in Antigua and Barbuda
  • Get spectacular views of the whole island from the summit
  • Learn about local flora and fauna as you hike


Join one of our certified guides on this awesome hike in Antigua. You’ll follow a beautiful trail to the summit of Mount Obama and get to enjoy awesome views of the island.

Interestingly enough, this summit was originally called Boggy Peak but was renamed after Barack Obama’s US election victory in 2009. As we begin the hike, you’ll see an information spot explaining the backstory.

The trail is around 6.6 km, and we’ll gain 450 meters of elevation. It takes a couple of hours to ascend and then less than an hour to descend. Along the way, you’ll get to enjoy the lush vegetation of tropical Antigua. Your guide will also point out the different type of plants like papaya trees or mango groves.

This hike will be a constant uphill and is quite steep in parts.  So, a good level of fitness is needed. Previous experience hiking is also recommended. The summit is actually closed locked behind a gate but your guide will have the key, so you can access the last stretch of the hike.

When you get to the top, you’ll get awesome 360-degree views of Antigua, including the sparkling southern coastline. If you’re lucky with the weather you may even get to see the island of Montserrat. This really is one of the best hikes in Antigua.

So, what are you waiting for? Book now and soon you’ll be hiking in the Caribbean and enjoying some adventure in the tropics.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
