Eco-Friendly Nature Tour

St. Lucia is home to a wide array of stunning flora and fauna, and the Des Cartiers Rainforest Trail is a phenomenal place to enjoy the island's natural rainforest environment. During your hike, you just might witness the rare St. Lucia parrot and other colorful island birds.

Because the trail is remote, it retains a pristine air. You'll witness lush tropical foliage as you traverse the trail into the high canopied forest. Be sure to come prepared for rain as this area sees a tremendous amount of annual rainfall.

Utrip Tips

*Many tourists visit the trail via a guided tour due to the difficulty of finding the trailhead and lack of public transportation, however, it is certainly possible to adventure on your own!
*Keep an eye out for the turnoff outside of Micoud. Once you're off the main highway, it is another 6 mile drive (30-45 mins) into the interior. Be on the lookout for signposts.
*If you do choose to drive to the trailhead, be sure to call ahead.
