Take your experience to the next level with a small group (maximum 8 privileged guests) for a more personalized experience. Extreme Dominica offers an incredible adventure that reveals the natural beauty of the island from the inside out.
Gear up at Extreme Dominica's headquarters at Cocoa Cottages in Shawford. You will complete a brief but thorough training program, where you will learn to how harness up and rappel down the side of a wall. Then, hop into a 4x4 vehicle and you're off to the secret site.
Hike down through the rain forest to a secret waterfall that drops off into a hidden canyon far beneath the sunlit forest canopy. Seven spectacular, hidden waterfalls drop through a steep canyon which runs between Titou Gorge and the top of Trafalgar Falls.
Peer over the top of the first rushing waterfall roaring into the shadowy abyss. You are harnessed in, and away you go. Your legs are braced against the waterfall wall as pure, cold water cascades all around you. You let out the rope and slowly descend into a new world. Soft green light filters down the cliff walls of this hidden gorge to the deep, pristine pool waiting far down below on the river. One guide pays out the second security line and the other shouts encouragement from below.
Touch down into the first of a series of incredible crystal-clear pools descending down along the canyon bed. Six more waterfalls await you, ending up appropriately at the seventh fall – the magnificent Cathedral Falls, complete with vaulted arched walls, a recessed altar alcove, and enormous overhead "pipe organ" of root masses.
After a 1/2-mile uphill hike out, you have left this secret world behind. Standing in the warm bright sunlight it almost seems like a dream. Luckily, you have a store of incredible digital pictures taken with the waterproof camera available for rent from your host.
