Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


There exist numerous ways to explore Dominica. One of the most difficult and at the same time amazing ways to face the beautiful nature of the Dominica Island is to take a canyoning trip.

One of the most vivid advantages of such trips is the ability to see the outstanding beauty of the island that is hidden in most secret passages and places. Apart from the regular sites of the Dominica Island that can be easily accessed by walking, canyoning offers numerous tourists a perfect possibility to test their strength and to take a more difficult hiking trip to those places that are relatively unexplored and hidden from the view.

Such trips can give you the feeling of a discoverer who found the land never seen by any man before. You will find numerous waterfalls and rock formations, pools and beautiful views. You will jump into every waterfall that appears on your way. After the jump you will have to swim across their pools.

One of the most pleasant things about the canyoning trips is that they do not require any special experience. All the necessary equipment (crash helmet, harness, wetsuit and buoyancy jacket) and training are provided before your trip stets off. Professional guides and experts give a brief but very comprehensive practical training session for trip before you set off. Everyone will definitely get wet in this journey. However that fact should not bother anyone, because the impressions you get will not let you think about such nuisance. Wetsuits keep you body warm and also protect knees and arms.

The majority of canyoning trips take place within the river canyon below Ti Tou Gorge. It is one of the most popular and most amazing routes. Ti Tou Gorge is the start point of the canyon. It runs all the way down to the “father” falls at Trafalgar. Of course, there is a great number of other amazing and wonderful routes for those who seek more and more impressions and want to discover as many new places as possible.

The standard trip usually lasts for approximately four hours and involves climbing, jumping into the pools, rappelling down waterfalls, and hiking the river. The most breathtaking views, waterfalls and rocks are found in the Cathedral Canyon – one of the last parts of a trip. This is definitely a view that is worth all
efforts!

These canyoning trips are not the easiest way to discover the beauty of the Dominica Island. However, canyoning can give the brightest impressions. That is a good travel for adventurous people who seek something new and breathtaking on Dominica.
