Spanny's Falls Dominica is an undiscovered treasure for the serious hiker. Although just 30 miles long and 15 wide, it has some of the most pristine montaine rainforest to be found anywhere. With several peaks over 4,000ft, it also boasts one of only two World Heritage Sites in the Eastern Caribbean - Dominica's Morne Trois Pitons National Park:

"Luxuriant natural tropical forest blends with volcanic features of high scenic appeal and scientific interest... With its precipitous slopes and deeply-incised valleys, fifty fumaroles and hot springs, freshwater lakes, a "boiling lake" and five volcanoes...together with the richest biodiversity in the Lesser Antilles, Morne Trois Pitons National Park presents a rare combination of natural features of World Heritage value. "

Dominica's well-established National Park service covers much of the island and there is an extensive network of trails that allow you to discover a wealth of hidden waterfalls, lakes, flora and fauna amid our lush tropical rainforest.

So come, Hike Dominica!
