The 45-minute boat trip to Sark takes
you past the islands of Herm, Jethou and Brecqhou. On
arrival at La Maseline harbour in Sark, a tractor will
transport you to the top of Harbour Hill. This mode
of transport is affectionately known as “The Toast
Rack.” There are no cars on Sark, and tractors
are the only motorised form of transport.
For those of you who may prefer to walk, there is a
steep woodland path which leads to the top of the hill
where your horse and carriage awaits to take you on
a 2 hour gentle exploration of this unique island.
You will visit the beautiful gardens of La Seigneurie,
the family home of the late Dame of Sark, which welcomes
visitors who delight in the informal setting. Continuing
the tour at a lazy trot, down country lanes, past granite
farmhouses, the next stop is at La Coupee, a narrow
ithsmus which joins the two islands of Great Sark and
Little Sark together. There are magnificent views from
this high natural land bridge which stands approximately
300 ft above the sea.
At the end of the carriage tour, lunch can be purchased
at one of the attractive hotels or restaurants in the
village or the time can be spent browsing in the local
potteries, silver and glassware shops. Alternatively
relax and enjoy the ambience of Sark’s easygoing
way of life before venturing down the hill to embark
on your boat trip back to Guernsey.
