Ziplining in St. Lucia

Forest Flights on Mountain Heights

Forest-clad mountains rise from the blue waters of Caribbean, beckoning the adventurous to rise higher and take flight. The adventure begins with a relaxing ride on an aerial tram that glides up a mountain slope. Along the way, you pass through groves of towering gommier and blue mahaut trees and catch views of the coast more than a half mile below. A short hike through a lush forest of indigenous plants leads to the first platform, where you clip into the harness, step off, and begin a soaring flight through the treetops. This is what it must feel like to be a bird.

Highlights

  • Best for: Everyone, experiences including watersports, yoga, spas and soft to rugged adventures
  • Best season to visit: Year round
  • Weather: Steady trade winds account for relatively minor differences in seasonal air temperatures, which range from the 70s into the mid 80s. Rain showers are less common from December to May

Saint Lucia Information

Ziplining in Saint Lucia Overview

Tours begin with a scenic drive into the island's mountainous interior, arriving at 1,200-acre Castries Waterworks Reserve, which is the oldest rainforest preserve on Saint Lucia. An aerial tramway carries participants to the upper slopes of La Sourciere Mountain, where a series of nine ziplines run through the upper branches of the forest.

Ziplining in Saint Lucia Tips

Riding ziplines is a thrilling experience, but in Saint Lucia, there's more to the experience than an adrenaline rush. As you glide through the treetops and stand atop elevated platforms high on the mountain, be sure to take in your surroundings. The aerial tram that brings riders to the park provides another opportunity to watch for birds and other wildlife from an elevated position.

Best Places to Zipline in Saint Lucia

High above the resorts of the island's west coast, La Sourciere Mountain rises to heights of over 3,000 feet. Here, on the green-clad slopes of a forest reserve, a network of lines runs through the forest canopy, providing riders with an exhilarating route that showcases aspects of the highland rainforest that can't be seen from the ground.

What to Pack for Ziplining in Saint Lucia

Wear sturdy closed-toe shoes—not flip flops— and shorts or long pants that profile flexibility but won't ride up under a harness. Remove items that dangle or might snag, such as watches and jewelry. Use a universal mounting bracket to attach video cameras or phones to helmets, which will be supplied by the park.

Culture and Customs

Saint Lucia is a land of vibrant greens set in a sapphire sea. Rainforests cover the island's interior, providing vacationers with a variety of eco-adventures that range from sedate birding hikes and relaxing rides on an aerial tram to off-road adventures and soaring zip line flights through forested canopies home to endemic birds such as the Saint Lucia parrot. The lush surroundings also set the stage for a number of unique resort properties that blend luxury and nature, and provide some of the best dining experiences in the Caribbean. The island's rich volcanic soil yields a cornucopia of tropical fruits and vegetables. This bounty is reflected in the savory dishes of traditional Creole cooking, and it has inspired a new wave of organic and fusion cuisines that have earned island chef's top honors in international culinary competitions. In addition to enlivening resort kitchens, Saint Lucia's farms and orchards support a thriving agricultural export sector that includes bananas and chocolate. One of the island's sweetest day trips involves a tour of historic cacao plantations, followed by a chance to create your own chocolate confections. Across the island English influences are obvious, but so too are the cultural contributions of France and Africa. The local version of relaxing is known as “going on the lime” or “liming,” which simply involves stopping by a favorite local pub or rum shop and spending time with friends.

Electricity, Phone and Internet Access

Saint Lucia runs on 220 to 230-volt AC (50 cycles), so bring an adapter if you plan to use U.S. appliances. Some hotels are wired for U.S. appliances.

Many hotels offer WiFi.

Water Quality

The local tap water is chlorinated and considered safe to drink. Alternatively, bottled water is available for purchase at restaurants, bars, hotels and local grocery stores.

Language & Currency

English is the official language, but islanders often speak a French-Creole patois or Kweyol similar to that heard on Martinique, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Grenada and Dominica.

The currency in Saint Lucia is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, (EC$). You can see the current exchange rate here. However, nearly all hotels, restaurants, and shops accept US dollars. Change may be given in EC Dollars. ATMs are available which dispense EC dollars and credit cards are widely accepted.
