3 Adventure Experiences to Add to Your Travel Bucket List

With a new year comes a slew of resolutions that we often find hard to keep. This is where your bucket list comes in—as you delve further into 2018, consider changing your travel imaginations into realizations.

Canyoning

Luckily, Dominica is home to boundless adventure, where people from both near and far find an unmatched sense of accomplishment and inner peace when immersed in the island’s natural beauty. Make 2018 the year of fulfilling your wanderlust, of chasing your goals to see and experience the earth’s life-changing bounty. At Fort Young Hotel, we specialize in helping you check off your bucket list ambitions. With canyoning, hiking and waterfall tours within stone’s throw, one’s reveries of adventure are brought to complete fruition.

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.
