Waterfall Tours

The island of Dominica is comprised of a remarkable 365 rivers, featuring 12 waterfalls throughout its lush rainforest. In fact, the island is believed to be the last place on earth that Columbus would still recognize. Fort Young Hotel partners with waterfall tour groups who know our country’s landscape better than anyone else. Dip in a hot spring at Trafalgar’s twin drops or clamber across rocks through the rainforest on a 45-minute hike to the dramatic Middleham Falls, which drops 200-feet from the looming cliffs above. Amongst the Nature Island, there are boundless sights to be seen, experienced and memories to be kept forever.

Canyoning

Canyoning, otherwise known as canyoneering or waterfall rappelling, is one of the most fulfilling and exhilarating ways to explore the magical depths of Dominica. Descend into the island’s canyons and discover the lush rainforest and waterfalls within the ins and outs of striking rock structures. Fort Young Hotel’s concierge is happy to arrange a canyoning adventure in which you will put on a wetsuit, harness and helmet and traverse into otherworldly nooks of the Nature Island.
