This is the ultimate add-on to the popular Soufriere excursion, offering an upbeat and fun activity to heighten the excitement of a bundle-filled eco-tour. It combines the adrenaline rush of zipping under the sheer Petit Piton, with elevated views of the historic town of Soufriere and the Caribbean Sea in this stop.
Upon arrival you are out-fitted with harness, helmet and gloves and briefed on our health and safety guidelines. After a training demonstration, you are ready for the fun and are led up to the first platform from which you are torn between a panoramic view of the bay and the awe of the towering Pitons. While you whizz safely between giant Banyans, your experienced guides keep you informed of the eco-system, spectacular views to look out for and the required standards of our US-built course.
Eight zip cables move you effortlessly through the estate where you can take your own air-borne photos of the Piton and town, before being carried into a canopy of banyan, coconut, plum and mango trees and across a bamboo-shadowed gorge. You can also see, smell and hear the ecosystem thriving in a pond below.
