Follow the distant sound of raging whitewater on this canyoning excursion on the tropical island of Dominica. An experience that will heighten your senses, follow the island's freshwater back to source as you cut your path through the jungle - scrambling, climbing, swimming and rappelling on a nature trail like no other!
This activity is run & operated from Roseau on the island of Dominica.

Natural landmarks include Trafalgar Falls, Titou Gorge & the Roseau River.
Meet your guide at the activity base in Roseau for this unforgettable canyoning experience in Dominica! An all-action alternative to the tropical beaches and luxury resorts the Carribean is most popular for, this exciting nature trail will explore the island's tropical interior - heading to parts of the national park rarely visited by visitors. After a short safety briefing and short training demo on an 8ft climbing wall, guests will hike 15 minutes into the forest - following the river upstream and deep into the jungle. Unlike other canyoning experience, this route is in a secret location and untouched by mass tourism - allowing you to truly immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of aptly named 'Nature Island'. On this half-day adventure, you'll get to jump in hidden fresh pools deep in the rainforest and descend into dark gorges - carved from thousands of years of rainfall. With a breathtaking view unveiled around every obstacle, your guide will help you to tackle a solo abseil, traverse ravines, climb over escarpments and take the ultimate leap of faith - a finale jump into a crystal clear sinkhole! After traversing the magical canyon the tour concludes with a 15-minute hike back to the starting point. The tour ends at the canyoning school with hot cocoa tea and fresh local fruit. Want more?
