Guernsey & Sark - Sark by Horse & Carriage (full day)

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.
