Information not currently available.
Approximately 3½ hours
Journey to the Antigua rain forest, just 35 minutes away from the pier.
You'll be briefed by a trained and experienced guide in preparation for a stunning eco-tour, which takes place high above the trees of the lush forest.
After a beverage, set out from the Old Pump House with a walk over a suspension bridge, which spans the gorge to the far bank. Once you're across the bridge, your zip-line journey through the forest begins.
Criss-cross the gorge on lines varying from 52 feet to 328 feet in length. The geography of the gorge dictates that you are above the treetops for large parts of the run, entering and exiting a corridor in the foliage at either end. In total there are 12 zip-lines, one tree house, three aerial walkways and two suspension bridges, giving you a wonderful bird's-eye view of the flora and fauna in the rain forest. The gorge is full of interesting plants and fruits, with stands of large trees and prominent boulders. It offers a shaded area with interesting plants with a range of wild fruits, vines, mosses and lichens.
Take a break in the tree house, hidden away from the rest of the world.
When you have completed the tour you will be presented with a certificate of achievement.
