  • We started around 10 with our guide Elvis, the first hour I was somewhat disappointed to have spent money as the way was clear and not really hard. Once however brings the first small climb behind and comes in the "Valley of desolation" the Guide finds its justification. Descending a crater which is in constant change because of landslides and land subsidence. The "boiling Lake" is an interesting spectacle. You can do this trip definitely without a guide, but will definitely enhances the experience. We have for our 6 hour tour $80US paid ($40 / P). CA $13 / h for jmd which the nature and history of the country knows about, which offers a glimpse into the life of the locals and indicates that we have seen on many animals in the forest, I think more than acceptable. We have seen 2 Agoutis, small praying mantises and many different hummingbirds.

  • a very special experience is a visit to the Boiling Lake, the second largest boiling Lake in the world, on the beautiful island of Dominica. The Lake is only accessible on foot, via an adventure trail through the jungle (with a guide!) along warm waterfalls and through the Valley of Desolation (sulphur sources). Book the tour at Seabird Tours (reliable organization)
