Indianer Jones Bridge in the Rain Forest near Saint Paul

from brochure "Rain Forest Aerial Trams"
The venue is situated on the slopes of a mountain on the leeward side of the island above the village of Laudat, in a secondary forest with very diverse flora and bird life, some of which are unique to Dominica. The tram is located about half an hour (30 minutes) from the harbor of Ro-seau.
The Rain Forest Aerial Tram is comprised of 22 gondolas, each holding 8 passengers plus a naturalist guide, who has the expertise not only on the general history of Dominica but also on the very unique flora and fauna that is seen as you travel on the tram. All the safety features necessary to make the ride safe and your experience unforgettable have been carefully thought out and designed.
The canopy ride takes 90 minutes through and over the treetops, admiring the wonderful ver-dure of the forest while gazing at the diverse bird life. On a clear day, on the way back to the boarding station, you have an endless view of the lush forests and hills of Dominica as well as the azure sea beyond. We also have the Chatannier Nature Trail that winds up through the for-est so you can admire the diverse plants with palm like fronds, and the root structure of many trees. This trail leads along various small bridges over streams to a unique suspension bridge, which was built to traverse a 300 ft. (7.5m) gorge.
This new attraction on the island of Dominica will fulfill your dream for a few wonderful hours communing with nature to observe a unique Caribbean rainforest on a very comfortable and ef-fortless ride at a site, which registers almost 300 inches (8.5m) of rain per year.
