Victoria Falls – dramatic as they are majestic, the Victoria Falls will challenge your fitness; hiking from Delices, a village in the east of the island, you cross the river at several points scrambling over huge boulders to reach the base of the waterfall which culminates in a pristine pool; the water’s milky hue comes from the accumulation of numerous sulphurous minerals over the years. Excellent for swimming and a natural skin cleanser, this adventure offers a bonus which you cannot afford to miss. (5-6 hours)
Boiling Lake– said to be the second largest in the world, this tour will give you some of the most spectacular sights ever seen. From the village of Laudat to the Valley of Desolation through cascades of natural hot sulphurous showers, you enter a secondary rain forest passing through strands of the only native conifer in Dominica, Podocarpus cariceus. To upland valleys and down minor gorges onto ridges clothed in elfin woodland of kaklen (Clusia mangle), you come to hot steaming vents and geysers in the Valley of Desolation carpeted with sulphurous vegetation of mosses and lichens. Normally measuring up to 200ft in diameter with rock walls of 60-100ft high and a depth exceeding 195 ft, with water temperature over 92C/206.6F. This has led to increased interest making the experience all the more challenging. (6-7 hrs).
Cross Island Hike – a challenging hike takes you up the rich foliage of the Roseau Valley to the Freshwater Lake; cross island hike to the village of Grand Fond (French for Big Ditch) and to the Rosalie River for a refreshing swim and picnic lunch; you return to the capital city, Roseau through the Antrim Valley and the Imperial Road. (6/7 hrs)
Layou River Gorge – Dominica’s largest and longest river with its precipitous tall cliff overhanging the river offers the visitor one of the most exciting natural experiences ever. Crossing valleys and ridges, one can bathe in the Layou river itself with its diversity of freshwater fish; mullets and gobies are particularly common. This exciting trek takes one high into the interior through a series of gorges once used by Maroon slaves as a hide-out. Scrambling over rocks, wading through the river and swimming down rapids, one needs to be physically fit to take on this trek which can be extremely challenging. (7 hrs)
