What You Can Expect
A short scenic drive to the lush green forest allows you to enjoy the warmth and quaintness that sums up St. Lucia. You'll be met by an expert forestry guide who will lead you on an awe inspiring nature walk. You'll explore massive gommier trees and blue mahaut trees, various species of lichen as they intricately wind their way up large tree trunks, wild anthurim lilies, wild nutmeg and the seemingly endless species of flora and fauna.
Savor the privilege of sharing a habitat with endemic birds like the Mangrove Cuckoo and the Black Finch as you stroll through their enchanting and natural sanctuary. There is the chance of seeing or hearing the cry of the elusive "St. Lucian Parrot" and experiencing the thrill of viewing a Boa Constrictor lying in cool indifference on a tree trunk.
The walk is great with very knowledgeable guides. The only difficulty for me was that I found it hard to do the climbing of the stairs because of my COPD. Both the guide and my fellow walkers were very supportive - I felt like I was holding everyone up but they said no.
Part of the Aerial Tram and Zipline set up. Well organised, and our knowledgable guide Terry told us a lot about the Rainforest. The walk took about 3 hours in total and altogether climbs about 800 feet. Consequently there are quite a lot of fairly steep stepped sections, so a bit more strenuous than we were expecting. However there is no forcing of the pace and there were frequent stops.
We had a really informative guide but the walk was quite steep in places and although my husband and I were able to manage it, a few people had to drop out half way. Perhaps it should have been made clearer in the information that the walk was quite strenuous.
Well this tour was cancelled due to a lack of participants.A representative was sent to our hotel room with this itenerary to inform us of the cancellation and even offered to replace this activity with another. We ended up doing the rainforest tour with the tram ride for an extra $50 pp. It was AWSOME! The sounds and sights of the rainforest is best experienced in person. Although all we say were trees and occasional flowers, I enjoyed the trip. The tram ride was an added plus. Although after the tram ride when the guide took us on a 10 minute 'hike' around the rainforest, she rushed the whole thing. I would recommend the tram ride through the rainforest.
