CASTRIES (St. Lucia)
CASTRIES (St. Lucia)

Explore a land of vibrant colour, from the tranquil turquoise water that surrounds it, to the verdant green peaks of its famous soaring volcanic plugs - The Pitons; which give this mesmerising island its form. Waterfalls thunder in the jungled interior, should you successfully drag yourself from St Lucia's gleaming beaches and dive spots - where patchworks of colourful fish dance below the waves. Offering the picturesque island luxury of your wildest dreams, St. Lucia is a cinematic, thrilling Caribbean idyl. View more

Marigot Bay served as the tropical backdrop for 1967’s Doctor Dolittle film, and the island's amiable animal life is never too far away - spot flashes of bright red, as parrots zip between palm trees, before catching sight of dolphins splashing playfully offshore. Vigie beach is a charmed spot to lie back and recline in the sun’s glow, watching as overlapping layers of mesmerising blue hues intertwine. St. Lucia’s iconic Pitons mountains deliver as the perfect backdrop to any envy generating photograph - rising up exponentially from the calm waters like sharp shark fins. Castries is this heavenly island’s capital, and while the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception may seem a little humble from the outside, the soft sounds of soulful hymns emanating from within are sure to draw you in. The astonishing interior glows with bright frescoes, lit up by the sunlight that spills inside, and atmospheric rows of flickering candles. There's more rich Caribbean colour to behold at the ramshackle Castries Market, where you can take handfuls of fragrant spices, like nutmeg and cinnamon, and enjoy the singsong ritual of bartering, as you move between tables heaving under bounties of green bananas and rosy mangos.

Open-air gondolas safely glide you through and over the tree tops, where knotted and twisting woody vines wind to the tops of old growth rainforest trees. Dense thickets of surreal vegetation merge with cascades of flowers. Lavender stars, orange bursts, yellow berries and white lace thrive on the branches of fragrant flowering trees. Giant 'Chatannier', Magnolia, Gommier trees tower over the landscape and provide food and shelter for St. Lucia's endemic and endangered parrot. Here, the flowers bloom with shameless abundance. Experience St. Lucia's forest from a whole new perspective and witness this ancient celebration of colour and life with the option to walk the Fern Nature trail as well.

Tranopy – Aerial Tram & Zip-line Adventure

Explore the rainforest canopy in two very unique ways as you combine a leisurely scenic glide via gondola through the rainforest with the exhilaration of a zip-line flight during this half-day adventurous outing.


Rain Forest Sky Rides Eco Park

From the pier in Castries depart by air-conditioned coach through St. Lucia's countryside. Pass through the communities of Babonneau, Fond Assau and Chassin en route to the Rain Forest Sky Rides Eco Park.


Gondolas, Rainforest trees, Lavender stars

Upon arrival you are geared up with a harness and helmet and receive a health and safety introduction. Next, after completing the training cable, you embark the aerial tram for your slow ascent through the wonders of the rainforest. Gondolas safely glide through and over the treetops, where knotted and twisting woody vines wind to the tops of old growth rainforest trees. Dense thickets of surreal vegetation merge with cascades of flowers. Lavender stars, orange bursts, yellow berries and white magnolia flowers and lace thrive on the branches of fragrant flowering trees. Once at the top station, disembark and continue on a trail descending through the thicket of the rain forest.


Hike, Sky Canopy Platform

Following a hike of approximately 20 minutes you reach the first Sky Canopy platform. The first zip cable is only the beginning of an exhilarating experience of sailing along eight zip cables. You fly among the high rain forest trees such as Gommier and Chatannier with great views of the north of the island, Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.


After the zip-line flight, begin the return hike to the top station of the aerial tram for the descent back to terra firma via a relaxing gondola ride. From the base of the tram, re-board the coach for the return to the ship.
