A holiday on the British Virgin Islands with Abercrombie & Kent mixes exploration and relaxation to every taste to create a truly memorable experience.
The capital of the British Virgin Islands, Road Town, is located on the island of Tortola and is the only town of any size. Tortola is the starting point for British Virgin Island holidays, offering the opportunity for island hopping via ferry links to Peter Island and Virgin Gorda as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands.
On Virgin Gorda, just eight miles in area and a protected National Park, life proceeds at a slow pace. Virgin Gorda has a hilly, dry terrain and is bordered by spectacular white sand beaches and a turquoise sea, ideal for swimming, sailing and diving - a feature of any holiday to the British Virgin Islands. The Baths area is of special note, with its unusual landscape consisting of immense boulders and grottos.
Peter Island is a 1000-acre private island and home to Peter Island Resort. It has a tiny population and offers isolated, palm-fringed beaches, great views out into Sir Francis Drake Channel and excellent picnic spots - bringing a real sense of exclusivity to your Virgin Island holiday
There are direct flights from London to Antigua daily, from where it is a short flight to Beef Island (linked to Tortola by a bridge).

Best time to travel
December - April
The best time to travel to the British Virgin Islands is during our winter and spring months of December to April. The British Virgin Island's weather is warm, subtropical and sometimes humid, with temperatures moderated by trade winds.
I can easily say that nothing - nothing - in the natural world compares to an hour spent with wild mountain gorillas. An encounter with these magnificent beasts is absolutely without parallel.
