An Ethical Getaway: Fort Young Hotel’s Voluntourism Package

Dominica, the Caribbean’s true natural treasure, is so beautifully untouched that it borders supernatural. Abounding with lush rainforests, waterfalls, rivers and uninhibited coastlines, the island is a rich mine waiting to be discovered. Luckily, Fort Young Hotel now offers the opportunity to do so—all whilst giving back to the earth in the wake of a land-altering storm.

The hotel’s new Voluntourism package offers five nights of accommodation, roundtrip airport transfers, full breakfast daily, a tour of the island and three days of transportation to Segment 3 of the Waitukubuli National Trail: Bellevue Chopin to Watten Waven. Here, one can catch a glimpse of the Morne Trois Pitons National Park and Boiling Lake, all while admiring exotic flora, fauna, sulphur springs and hot spas. With this package, guests will embark upon the challenging 12.8 km hike and do their part by clearing debris along the way so future travelers can, too, enjoy the trail’s bewildering beauty. And, of course, hikers will be rewarded with a soothing bath in clear waters and stunning vistas of the Giraudel Botanic Gardens.

And, while the Voluntourism package offers the coveted opportunity to experience the island’s natural splendor, guests will, too, benefit Dominica with their much-needed tourism and volunteer efforts. A true ethical getaway, the package allows one to experience the island’s grandeur while, likewise, being an essential factor in its continued growth.

The booking period is now through May 20, 2018, with the travel period comprising January 1 – May 31. The package price starts at $837 with a nightly rate discounted 25% and rates for all package components discounted 10-15%. So, come see all that our island has to offer and feel good doing so.
