Chemin L'Etang

$75 per person


This cross-island trail goes from Rosalie on the east coast to the Freshwater Lake (Chemin L’Etang, means Lake Road). Hiking this trail, you will retrace the original Kalinago track across the island, which for many years was the main east-west route. The dirt road rises gently at first, taking you through the small village of Grand Fond past fruit trees to a river crossing.

It then becomes a narrow track, switch-backing steeply across the rainforest-covered mountainside. Along the way, imagine how arduous a climb this must have been for those heavily laden Kalinagos – and how welcome the sight of Freshwater Lake must have been at the top! 

Bring comfortable shoes, swimsuit, towel, cash, and camera.
