St. Vincent and the Grenadines was made for the outdoor summer sports fanatic. The options are plentiful and everyone from the novice swimmer to the experienced mountainclimber will find something to do. On St. Vincent itself, the Souferie volcano is the king of climbs and not for the feint of heart. It is an all day monster hike that rewards with stunning views - if the weather holds! There is also a short hike to the Trinity Falls, as well as the longer and very beautiful Vermont Nature Trail just north of Kingstown. In addition, fishing - licenses are cheap and easily obtained - swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving are well rewarded. The water throughout SVG is sparkling clear, with the snorkeling and scuba diving in the Tobago Cays National Park considered to be the very best in the Western Hemisphere, though almost all of the islands in the country offer brilliant reefs and coral formations. Also, SVG is a sailor's paradise, offering a multitude of islands, coves and cays. Finally, for the landlubber, beyond hiking, there are golf courses on Canouan and Palm Islands - for guests, as well as tennis courts and soccer fields. There is also horseback riding on Mustique Island.
