scenes from Dominica hike fest 2010

Hike Fest in May, a series of events for hikers and outdoors fanatics from around the world can come discover why Dominica is referred to as the “Nature Island” of the Caribbean

Hikefest is also part of Dominica’s Tourism Awareness Month, organized by Discover Dominica Authority, Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association and the Ministry of Tourism.

This year’s festival highlights the upcoming Waitukubuli National Trail, which upon completion will be the first walking trail to traverse the entire Caribbean island.

What a better way to start Hikefest 2010 than with a moderate hike through the Carib Territory – Salybia to Pagua Bay. A distance of 15km.

This gentle hike offers an opportunity to gain a greater appreciation of Carib culture and history by taking ancient trail. Some of the attractions along the way include, Carib Territory, Kalinago Barana Aute (Carib Model Village) and Horseback Ridge.

There are also numerous breathtaking views, and intriguing Kalinago Myths throughout this varied terrain. Our Kalinago guide Prosper Paris was very knowledgeable, which added a bit of authenticity and humor.

The hike lasted about four hours, afterwards we spent the rest of the afternoon at the Royal Hatton in the elegant and historic Silks Luxury Hotel, where they served up delicious lunches and cold Kubuli beers. I couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Beautiful hike, wonderful people, nice sunny (a bit humid at times) day. Just couldn’t be better.
