Roseau, Dominica – (May 3, 2018), Saturday May 5th will kick off the 10th Annual Hike Fest 2018. Hikes will take place every Saturday during the month of May and will feature popular trails including segments of the Caribbean’s longest hiking trail, the Waitukubuli National Trail.
The hiking trails will showcase the varied natural attractions, cultural and historical features from the island’s interior and northern end, and will lead walking enthusiasts to some of the most breathtaking view points around the island. The trails will meander through farm and woodlands, follow quiet country roads and small villages. They will range from easy to moderate and everyone, including families, novice hikers, nature lovers and those curious about hiking are invited to participate and join in the celebration.
As an integral part of the 2018 Edition of Tourism Awareness Month, these early morning expeditions offer an exhilarating way to enjoy and explore brand new experiences and vistas in the Nature Island as all are encouraged to re-discover Dominica. Hike Fest presents an opportunity for individuals, families and groups to benefit from the destination’s natural assets which are designed to promote health and wellness due to the environmental bounty provided by the several waterways and abundance of flora.
