CHANNEL ISLANDS ADVENTURE Difficulty rating Difficulty rating

Just off the French coast of Normandy lies the Channel Islands archipelago, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm. Join us as we spend some quality time exploring the archipelagos, from the hustling Crown Dependencies of Jersey and Guernsey to the quieter more secluded islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm

Jersey Flag  JerseyJersey

The largest of the Channel Islands and self-governing Crown Dependency Jersey, lies between France and England. Jersey mixes both British and French cultures and is renowned for its beautiful beaches, towering cliff faces and its numerous tourist attractions. The best known of these are the Jersey War Tunnels complex, called Hohlgangsanlage 8, a partially completed hospital complex in St Lawrence with its hidden complex of tunnels which ran for over a kilometre underground and now house a collection detailing 5 years of German occupation. The Island is renowned for possessing some fabulous seafood restaurants and is home to many numerous attractions including the Nigel Mansell museum.

Guernsey Flag  GuernseyGuernsey

Guernsey is the second largest of the Channel Islands and is blessed with sandy bays and majestic cliffs and the captivating capital St Peter Port. The island was once home to arguably one of the greatest French poets, novelist, and dramatist of the Romantic Movement Victor Marie Hugo, his former residence Hauteville House is a major visitor attraction on the Island as is Castle Cornet which has stood guard over the harbour for 800 years. For food lovers Guernsey has a wide selection of places to eat from beach cafés to upmarket restaurants some of which appear in the Michelin guide.

Alderney Flag  AlderneyAlderney

The most northerly island on the archipelago, Alderney covers an area of 3 square miles, making it the third largest of the Channel Islands and the closet to both the United Kingdom and France and is separated from Cap de la Hague, Normandy by the dangerous Alderney Race a treacherous stretch of water. The capital and main town of Alderney is Saint Anne.

Sark Flag  Herm & SarkSark

Situated 3 miles off the coast of Guernsey and measuring just a mile and a half long and half a mile wide is the Island of Hern one of the smaller islands on the archipelago. The perfect place to relax and unwind, with its natural unspoilt beauty, unspoilt by cars it is the place to unwind.

The Island of Sark is part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey which dates back to 933 and is a royal fief with its own set of laws based on Norman law and its own parliament. Sark consists of two main parts, Greater Sark and Little Sark to the south. They are connected by a narrow 300 feet long isthmus called La Coupée with sea on both sides and 300 feet drops on both sides.
