3 Transformational Achievements to Take on in Dominica

One of the largest trends in travel today is to seek out transformational experiences around the world. However, not all life-changing getaways are made equal. Instead of sightseeing or checking countries off their bucket list, people are now yearning to accomplish something and challenge themselves. And Dominica just so happens to be the perfect place to achieve your travel goals. Below, get a glimpse of three transformational experiences to achieve while visiting the Nature Island.

Hike the Longest Trail in the Caribbean

There’s hiking, then there’s hiking the longest trail in the Caribbean. The latter, of course, is a definite reason to celebrate. Challenge yourself on Dominica’s Waitukubuli Trail, which is comprised of 14 sections that cover 115 miles of untrammeled rainforest. Meander through lush flora, past waterfalls and over rivers; experience Dominica’s vibrant history in the Kalinago Territory; open your eyes to colorful, endemic birds flying above; and, when it’s all said and done, return home with a rich story to tell.

Hiking

Jump Into Titou Gorge

Canyoning is one of the most worthwhile and eye-opening experiences, and there’s simply no better place to rappel than in the world’s one and only Nature Island. Conquer your fear of heights and embark on an unforgettable Titou Gorge adventure as you zig zag through the river valley, descend down waterfalls, climb volcanic cliffs and plunge into deep pools. Exploring the island’s magical depths offers unmatched physical and spiritual fulfillment.
