Dominica

Set in the Lesser Antilles archipelago of the Caribbean, Dominica is a tropical fantasy known for its pristine wilderness and outrageous natural beauty.

Craggy volcanic peaks carpeted in virgin rainforest, boiling lakes and hot springs,

dramatic gorges, fast-flowing streams, thundering waterfalls and bubbling reefs have earned this spectacular place the title of “the Nature Island” of the Caribbean.

It’s here that you’ll find the Caribbean's first and only long distance walking trail—the Waitukubuli National Trail. With a total length of 184 km (115 miles) split into 14 segments, this outstanding jungle trek runs from the southern village of Scott's Head to the Cabrits National Park in the North, encompassing Dominica's virgin rainforests, marine parks & mountainous interior.

Showcasing the best of Dominica's nature, culture, flora and fauna, the National Trail passes through old plantations, skirts along coastal cliffs, meanders past fertile farms and stops by small villages—this diverse and adventurous trek has it all!

Join us for a guided adventure on the Waitukubuli National Trail and discover the wild and unforgettable landscapes of Dominica.
