The sparsely populated paradise island of Dominica has recently developed an ‘end-to-end' long distance hiking route. The Waitukubuli National Trail is one of its kind in the Caribbean and snakes over the island from South to North taking in both coastlines and much of the interior. Dominica (not to be confused with the Dominican Republic) has managed to keep off the tourism radar for a long time, leaving the beaches empty and very few resorts. What we do experience on our 6 days of walking sections of this groundbreaking trail, is mountainous terrain cloaked in lush indigenous forest and grassy paths meandering alongside cooling streams. Our accommodation is in family run guesthouses and traditional homestays. We have 2 days of sightseeing, visits to waterfalls and trying our hand at some Caribbean cooking classes. This is an exciting new adventure and a most unusual destination!
Is this holiday for you?
Our 6 walking days consist of different length sections from the shortest at 7km to our longest walking day of 20km which will take approximately 8 hours. The trail was built in 2012 through sections of virgin rainforest with log bridges and stepping stones. In the rainforest it is likely that it will be muddy underfoot and you will experience high temperatures and humidity at certain times of year. There are also some sections of the trail which go through open grasslands and owing to the effect of the overhead sun, wide brimmed hats are essential. Meeting and interaction with the friendly locals is all part of the experience. Accommodation is in simple friendly guesthouses and small hotels. All luggage is transferred between the nights accommodation and all meals are included.
