Tristan da Cunha Island Shuttles
HLE airport transfers
A mountainous island resting along the calm waters of the South Pacific, Tristan da Cunha is a subtropical getaway for lovers of all-in-one simplicity. A strategic overseas territory of the UK, the island is home to a small settlement dubbed Edinburgh of the Seven Seas, home to a small collection of homes, farms and cottages along the main mountain’s foothills. Cruise ships arriving will most likely dock along Calshot Harbour, located on the north end and home to connected volcanic footpaths winding through scenic benches and a pier. Bring a good pair of shoes to make the hike easy, or drive down what few roads are available with a private transfer ranging from simple sedans to spacious chartered buses. Meet-and-greet services also make things easy, not only through local personal drivers who can offer special lookouts from Queen Mary’s Peak, but fast taxi that can drop off downtown in no time.
Truly get to know the regional backdrop of Edinburgh by seeing what beauty rests close to the port. A popular historic site is the Thatched House Museum, home to intimate looks at unique colonial-era architecture and daily tours, a bit further to the east of this landmark rest the connected Lava Field and its short paths leading to isolated views of the outskirts. Continue the afternoon along Calshot Harbour for something simpler, looking forward to fresh catches from the Crawfish Factory down the street, as well as beloved local eats and English-style bar games at Albatross Bar. A couple of old churches also offer historic views through St. Mary’s Church and St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, a traditional way to watch sunset being from the many hideaway vistas along the foothills of Queen Mary’s Peak, home to several trails and rock walls that range from moderate to difficult.
