The Best Outdoor Activities in Dominica

If you are travelling to Dominica, don’t miss out on enjoying these great outdoor activities on your visit.

The Boiling Lake Challenge

This full-day hike begins with being transported to the trail in a spacious, air-conditioned minivan. A guide takes you around the Morne Trois Pitons National Park via Laudat by Titou Gorge to Breakfast River by a hike up Morne Nicholls – a mountain with an altitude of 3,168 ft – to experience amazing views and panoramas of the valley below.

Afterwards you will descend through rain forests, volcanic fields and sulphur springs to eventually swim in the hot pools of the Valley of Desolation, where you will reach the final peak, overlooking the boiling lake. Breakfast and lunch are provided on this trip with vegetarian options available. If you are interested in experience, visit the Waitukubuli website for more information.

Canyoning Experience

Dominica is famous for its amazing canyons, so exploring them is a must. Extreme Dominica provides an excursion that is fun for the whole family – all you will need to bring is swimwear, towels and closed footwear – and Extreme Dominica provide the rest. On arrival at the Extreme Dominica headquarters, you will receive a quick training and briefing before taking a 15-minute drive to the canyons. The tour will last around 4 hours, before you come back to the canyon school for a hot cocoa, tea, and local fresh fruit for a relaxing end to an epic adventure.

The Emerald Pool

Featured in plenty of movies – and a popular venue for weddings – the Emerald Pool is within the Morne Trois National Park, surrounded by the forest. Although the pool is fed by a clear water from an impressive 40ft waterfall, the pool appears to be a stunning emerald green color due to the sunlight and the plants around.

It is the most accessible waterfall in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, just ten minutes from the interior Roseau-Castle Bruce Road.

The easy going and relaxing trip shouldn’t be missed – book on to the trail with Discover Dominica.

Volcano Snorkeling

Another fantastic tour from Waitukubuli is their Volcano Snorkeling. Dominica is home to the world-famous Champagne Reef Volcano – it sits just off the coast of Pointe Mitchel. Explore the crystal-clear Caribbean waters, swim through venting thermal bubbles and take a dip in the volcano bathes of Soufriere whilst taking in the fantastic underwater landscape. The Champagne Reef is known for its amazing chasms, craters, sheer walls and pinnacles which have formed through lava flow. On this experience, you’ll be picked up from Roseau, provided all the equipment and snacks you need. You will be in the company of an expert snorkeling guide, so experience isn’t necessary. Book through the Waitukubuli website.
