It’s not for nothing that Dominica is often called the ‘Nature Island’ of the Caribbean. Its tropical forests are so packed with rivers, waterfalls and hot springs that it’d be impossible to see them all on one trip. So we’ve picked some of the best for you. The day kicks off with a visit to the famous Trafalgar Falls. These twin falls – the bigger one is known as the father and the smaller one the mother – crash down a 220-foot rock face into a deep blue pool of water. It’s a 15-minute walk to the top, but your efforts will be rewarded with some great views from the platform. Next up is a journey into the heart of the rainforest which is within an UNESCO World Heritage site. A short walk will take you to the secluded Emerald Pool – a small basin at the foot of a little waterfall. Here, you can explore the lush surroundings of the forest or jump in for a refreshing dip before heading back to the docks.
This tour is not suitable for wheelchair users or for those with walking difficulties. Comfortable, closed footwear is required. The walk to the Emerald Pool includes uneven steps that are sometimes slippery when wet. It often rains in the forest, you may wish to take a rain mac along with you. The minimum age for this tour is 6 years old.
