What you will visit:
Botanical Gardens
This 40-acre oasis is the largest swath of green space in Roseau and is considered one of the botanical gems of the Caribbean. Established in 1891 by order of the British Crown, these excellent botanical gardens are home to over 50 indigenous species of plants and trees and home to an aviary for Sisserou parrots, the national bird of Dominica. A stroll through the fragrant blooms and verdant vegetation makes for an idyllic retreat. In 1979, the garden was ravaged by Hurricane David, and evidence of this can be seen in a large bus that is crushed beneath a toppled bapbob tree. The wide lawns are used for national parades, celebrations and cricket matches.

Trafalgar Falls
At one of Dominica's most fascinating and picturesque areas in the south central section of the island, a walk through dense foliage takes you to Trafalgar Falls, where you'll marvel at the twin falls cascading into a deep pool, surrounded by forest, lush ferns, and tropical flowers.

Titou Gorge
Titou Gorge translates to "Little Throat, " a descriptive representation of the deep natural cave created when volcanic lava cooled and split open. A cascading waterfall fills it with cool, sparkling waters and light shines through a leafy canopy above. There is also s natural hot spring that flows into the crystalline pool. So cinematic is the Titou Gorge, that it was the filming site of the blockbuster "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest." The entrance to the cave is quite rocky, water shoes are strongly recommended.


What you will see along the way:
Get off the beaten track and see the beauty of the Caribbean's most undisturbed ecosystem from your open-air 4-wheel-drive Jeep. Take roads not utilized by traditional vehicles and learn detailed information on the island's flora and fauna as you traverse the gorgeous landscapes.

Photo Opportunity:
Morne Bruce
From the panoramic hilltop of Morne Bruce, point your lens at the stellar views of the entire town of Roseau and the Botanical Gardens.

Snack:
Enjoy complimentary fresh local fruit and a beverage before boarding the "wacky roller" for your return trip to the pier.
