In Dominica, every trail across the island leads you to discover nature’s pristine environment with a touch of adventure. Through gorges and valleys. Into dense mountain rainforest. From rushing streams and rivers to natural springs and bubbling mud baths, to a myriad of cascading waterfalls, and a vast array of flora and fauna.
Dominica is home to the Caribbean’s first long distance trail, the Waitukubuli National Trail, which passes through the Carib (Kalinago) Territory (home to indigenous peoples and the UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the Morne Trois Pitons National Park that encompasses the world’s second largest Boiling Lake. The trail highlights island history, culture and community life, biological diversity, natural beauty, watersheds, and forest conservation, and continues to serve as a ‘living classroom’ for educational purposes and a form of wellness for both residents and visitors to the destination. .
Dominica will amaze and inspire everyone from the casual walker and serious hiker alike, as well as those who aspire to learn more about life in its natural state. We advise you to register before hiking and it’s always a smart idea to take a DDA certified tour guide to get the most out of your Dominica hiking experience.
