If you want an unforgettable way to see St. Lucia, this excursion is for you. The aerial tram provides an immersive way to experience the island’s lush rain forest, stunning panoramic views, and rich biodiversity of this Caribbean paradise.
Take a bus to Castries and you’re off to start the journey of a lifetime. When you arrive, board the aerial tram.
From here you’ll be transported up and away from the heat and bustle of the lowlands to an ecological park located in the heights of St. Lucia's forest reserve. The open-air gondola ascends quietly through the rain forest, offering a magical view of nature in all its majesty. An experienced naturalist interpreter will point out giant ferns and magnificent heliconia, and identify the calls and the plumage that calls the Caribbean oceanic forest home.
The descent affords a bird's-eye view of the forest and a spectacular panoramic vista of the north side of the island. With much to see and hear, the tram ride is a celebration of color and life – a restorative retreat to invigorate the senses.
Disembark at the community of Chassin, some 2,000 feet above sea level, nestled at the base of La Sorcière Volcano. This picturesque village is known for its serene surroundings, lush greenery, and tranquil ambiance. It will invite you with its natural beauty and peaceful charm. From here, it is just a half-hour drive back to Castries.
