Beautiful hike - Our guide Nigel made it even more special

We were staying in Calibishie and met our guide Nigel (just ask around). He recommended us to leave as early as possible, so we could make most of our day. It's a 2-hour drive... read more

My husband and I read online all about this crazy hike to Boiling Lake on the Island of Dominica and decided we weren’t afraid of no stinkin hike so we booked a guide at a cost of $350 Canadian and enthusiastically jumped right in. After reading all of the reviews we could find on Boiling Lake, we were fully prepared... More

We were staying in Calibishie and met our guide Nigel (just ask around). He recommended us to leave as early as possible, so we could make most of our day. It's a 2-hour drive, including a breakfast and coffee on the way and a supermarket stop for supplies (Nigel knows the best places). It's quite a hike (6 hours), bring... More

There were many ups and downs both physically, mentally and literally in the form of mountains. The scenery changed extensively throughout the hike. Our guide was excellent and did a great job explaining many different aspects of the hike, valley of desolation, lake history and basics about the island. It took us 5 hours round trip and he showed us... More

It's just as described by many. My wife and daughter went back 1/2 way through, for the average person it's a gruelling hike. I continued with my 11 yo son and we made it fine. A guide is a definite - the track from the valley on is very difficult to follow. It's a muscle burner but the raw power... More

I spent 3 weeks on Dominica hiking much of the WNT. Boiling Lake was rumoured to be one of the most challenging hikes on the island and I think a lot of the fear is undo! I found it much easier than many of the segments of the WNT and it was very easy terrain. It did take a good... More

**Note: As of November 21, 2016 the trail is closed due to tourists swimming in the lake. Everyone in town recommended I take a guide but upon completion, I would say that it is not necessary for experienced hikers. Locals will tell stories of people being lost for days and that the trail is difficult to find etc. There are... More

It's a great hike - up and down both ways - with varied scenery. It's not easy and not short (plan for six hours). Be prepared and take a lot of water.

I like a challenge an have been hiking for decades. I am 67 and fit. I must say this is the most difficult and strenuous hike I have done in years. (To Base of Grand Canyon and back was tough but stayed over night at base). Anyway, lots of steep up and downs both ways. Precarious footing and considerable danger.... More
