Situated at the northwestern end of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea, the US virgin Islands are the perfect spot for all sorts of great outdoor adventures.
From coastal via ferrata climbs on St Thomas to kayaking in US Virgin Island on St John and hiking through the lush forests of St Croix, there are so many different options.
Among the most popular are kayaking in Hurricane Hole and the Coral Reef National Monument in St. John. This day-long trip takes adventurers past some of the island’s coral reefs as well as into fresh and saltwater ways. Get the chance to see wildlife such as sea turtles and get great views of the island from the water.
Another popular option is to spend a half-day hiking up Maroon Ridge in St Croix. From here, you get great views out over the island. Learn a bit about the history, culture and ecology of the island while en route to the top of the hill too.
The climate in the US Virgin Islands is subtropical, with warm weather year round. The average daily temperature is about 30 °C (86 ºF). September to November is the wettest part of the year. From June to November is hurricane season.
Most trips to the US Virgin Islands begin with a flight into either the Cyril E. King Airport (STT) on St Thomas, or the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (STX), on St Croix. From here, it is easy enough to rent a car or take a combination of transports and ferries to the start of the trip.
