Our vacations in St. Lucia and Martinique

Rainforest Sky Ride

Deep in the mountainous center of St. Lucia extends the rainforest sanctuary. Visitors can come and admire the lush jungle and its flora and birds by taking a sky ride in an open gondola. We took the ride up the mountain, and then down again. As the name implies, we experienced a true rainy rainforest, getting soaked in the upper region of the mountain by almost permanent rain showers. For those more adventurous travellers, a Zipline runs from the top to the base of the mountain in about 10 segments, offering spectacular views, closeness to nature and excitement at the same time - we preferred the gondola.
