- Visit a site used for Pirates of the Caribbean
- Explore some of Dominica’s most exotic scenery
- See the incredible Boiling Lake
A fantastic day out amid some of the most unique and mesmerising landscapes on Dominica, this tour begins with a scenic drive through the botanic gardens before reaching the trailhead at Titou Gorge in Morne Trois Pitons National Park. Meaning Little Throat, Titou Gorge is a natural cave caused by volcanic lava splitting apart a rock. Inside, a waterfall cascades down to create a scene of stunning beauty - it’s no surprise that it was chosen as a filming location for Pirates of the Caribbean.
From the trailhead you’ll take the steady Boiling Lake Trail above the river into the Valley of Desolation - so-called because the volcanic features in these parts give it an otherwordly, almost lunar aspect. Reaching the Boiling Lake, you’ll be amazed by the vapour and heat coming from the water, which is actually a fumarole, or a crack in the Earth’s crust. This is one of Dominica’s must-see natural landmarks, not to be forgotten in a hurry, and a fitting reward for your hiking efforts..
