Highlights / General details
Experience the transformative power of nature. Hike in the heart of the rainforest amidst the mighty chatannier and the fragrant gommier, listen for the call of the parrot, and enjoy the bustling stillness of nature.
Begin a gradual ascent into the mature Caribbean Oceanic forest and get up close and personal with the mighty chatannier, an impressive hardwood with expansive buttress root systems or the incredible strangler ficus which grows around the host tree in an interlocking lattice before replacing it entirely. The hike affords wonderful opportunities to learn about St Lucia’s flora and fauna as experienced Nature Interpreters guide you across ravines and creeks deeper into the mature forest. Spot giant ferns and remarkable epiphytes, and keep your eyes peeled for the trail’s namesake and a host of other birdlife, and learn how the bountiful forest was an integral part of traditional St Lucian life, for food, medicine and materials.
The Castries Waterworks reserve at the La Sourciere Mountain is home to Rain Forest Sky Rides, St Lucia’s premiere eco-adventure company, just half an hour’s drive from port Castries and the island’s major hotels.
