Hike into Dominica

Join us twitter

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.

Pick the segments that fit your interest and ability or challenge yourself to complete the entire trail (allow at least two weeks to complete!). Learn more




EASY HIKES
Dominica has many easier rated trails that allow the casual hiker to get out and enjoy the Nature Island and its many outdoor wonders. For the most part, these trails are relatively wide and smooth with easy grades. Bridges are typically available when crossing water, streams or gullies. Learn More




INTERMEDIATE HIKES
Moderate trails will confront the hiking enthusiast with sections that are more challenging with some steeper slopes of up to 1,000 ft of elevation change. Steps will typically be found only on the steepest grades and bridges only found on larger rivers difficult to wade across. Learn More




ADVANCED HIKES
For the serious hiker, Dominica is home to some of the most challenging and rewarding trails in the Caribbean. Hikers must be in very good physical condition. Sections of these trails can include grades that are often long and steep, often exceeding 35%. Learn More
