Outdoor enthusiasts venture from far and wide to experience trail time on the 115-mile Waitukubuli, the longest hiking trail in the Caribbean, as it offers the ultimate excursion amid a lush, awe-inspiring landscape. Meander through Dominica’s varied terrain and the famed route is sure to reward you with unimaginable sights of the island’s natural wonders.

Stretching the length of the island, the Waitukubuli National Trail traverses over 14 segments with each offering its own unique journey. Varying in challenge level and terrain, select a route that suits your preference and—if you desire to finish one of the entire segments—plan for a hike that will fill most of your day. Whether you choose to leisurely stroll a portion of a segment or tackle the full track, make sure to keep an eye out for parrots and other wildlife as you make your way. Leading to rivers, forest and farmland, the pathway boasts endless, breathtaking sights to soak in.

Explore Dominica’s rivers, waterfalls, mountains, gorges and rain forest from a new perspective as you wander pathways immersed in nature. For visitors and non-residents, make sure to register before hitting the trail as well as purchase a Trail Pass, which our concierge at Fort Young Hotel will happily arrange for you. Open your eyes to an entirely new world of adventure on the Waitukubuli.
