The island of St Lucia is a fantastic destination for the adventurous spirit. With volcanic pools to bathe in, mountains to climb and an underwater world to explore, the intrepid traveller will never be bored here. If you want to indulge your inner Tarzan and enjoy an adrenaline rush like no other, join us for a trip to the less visited eastern side of the island for the ultimate jungle adventure.
The Real St. Lucia Zipline Tour kicks off with a drive to the fishing town of Dennery, about 40 minutes from Castries. Dennery lies at the mouth of the Dennery River. Just to the west of Dennery along the banks of the river we stop at Treetop Adventure Park, home to the Caribbean’s best zipline. Here you get to sweep through the rainforest canopy high above the ground at speeds that will take your breath away.
There are 12 lines, the longest of which stretches for 800 feet through the treetops. All in all you’ll cover 5,100 thrilling feet, with the highest point a dizzying 150 feet, or about 15 storeys, above solid ground. Protective gear, including harnesses, a helmet and gloves, are provided. Trained guides will be with you on every platform to ensure that you have an unforgettable but, above all, safe experience.
During the adventure, you can admire the rainforest of St Lucia from a different angle and maybe even spot birds, reptiles, insects and arachnids that you wouldn’t otherwise have seen. Afterwards, you may want to see the forest in a more traditional way, which you get to do as we drive the short distance to Errand Falls, also known as Dennery Falls or Sault Falls. With a drop of about 55 feet, they’re among the island’s highest waterfalls. Instead of simply admiring the falls from afar, take a dip in the pool and let the cascading water massage your shoulders while you find respite from the tropical heat.
After a refreshing swim, our knowledgeable staff at Real St Lucia Tours will take you back to Castries, giving you the opportunity to admire the scenic beauty of the island’s banana plantations and rainforests along the way. We drop you off at your hotel or cruise ship, where you can decide how to continue your St Lucia adventure.
How long does the tour take?
The entire tour lasts for about 4 hours, making it the perfect choice for a St. Lucia shore excursion or a morning out during a vacation.
Who can take part?
You don’t have to be a super fit and agile monkey to enjoy the ziplines but you shouldn’t be a complete couch potato either. The lines are not recommended for people with mobility issues, a heart condition or who are pregnant. You shouldn’t weigh more than 250 pounds.
There is a minimum height requirement of 50 inches but this doesn’t mean that small children can’t enjoy the zipline adventure too. There is a special mini-zipline for children older than 3 years.
What should I wear?
It’s recommended that you wear comfortable clothes with trainers or closed sandals. Flip-flops aren’t allowed on the ziplines. Remember to bring your bathing suit for the swim at the Errand Falls!
