This day hike to the top of Morne Diablotins (1447m), the highest peak in Dominica, is a fun and fascinating adventure, as we traipse and travail through lush green rainforest, muddy woodland and volcanic rock to reach the summit, featuring incredible views out over the entire island.
Join me as I guide you on this sensational day hike to the top of Morne Diablotins (1447m), the highest peak in Dominica and an area that contains some of the most idyllic, tranquil and exquisite scenery in the country, as we hike our way through muddy trails, slippery roots and branches and countless waterways to reach the top, where the breath-taking views make our exertions all worthwhile.
Morne Diablotins is a volcanic mountain nestled within the Morne Diablotin National Park in Dominica, and is the highest mountain in the country and the second highest in the Lesser Antilles. It is only 15 miles North of the countries capital city, Roseau, and its last volcanic activity occurred 30,000 years ago.
Our trip begins when we meet in Roseau, and from there it is a short drive up to the start of the hiking trail.
Throughout the hike we will come across several of the islands native bird species such as parrots and hummingbirds, each with their own unique and distinct characteristics.
The initial lush, dense rainforest turns in to more open and spacious woodland the further up we go, and there are several sections that involve crawling over roots and under and through branches and trees.
After some steep and sometimes muddy hiking, we finally reach the summit, giving us uninterrupted sweeping panoramic views back over the island, with its vast green valleys and mountains stretching out to the magnificent ocean.
After ample time admiring the sumptuous views, we then head back down to the starting point, where our journey ends, hopefully having made you fall even more in love with this slice of paradise.

Meet in Roseau, drive to hiking trail, hike all day, head back to Roseau, finish.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
