DOMINICA - eco hiking tours


Boiling Lake Hike

This 6-7 hour arduous hike starts in the village of Laudat. For the first hour the trail passes through lush rain/montane forests, then moving up into the elfin forests on higher ground - more difficult terrain. The Boiling Lake of Dominica is said to be the largest of its kind in the world. It is about 200 feet in diameter and is inside a crater; the lake is fed by two freshwater streams.
The water is heated by magma below the surface, which causes it to boil constantly at the centre where it is over 100 degrees Celsius.

The trail also passes through the Valley of Desolation an area where there is plenty of volcanic related activities like hot fumeroles and Sulphur pits. Because of the mixture of different chemicals and minerals in the area, the streams have interesting colours like gray, bluish gray, white and even black.

It is a very strenuous hike and one should be in very good physical condition before attempting to undertake it. It is recommended that you carry some liquid and snacks in a knapsack, this way you will have your hands free.

The Boiling Lake hike should not be attempted by anyone with a heart condition or suffering from old injuries, which are likely to be aggravated by stress. People with physical problems should discuss them with the guides before doing the hike.

Cost for 1-4 persons rates per additional people upon request, email holidays@caribzones.com
