With this brief introduction you will be able familiarise yourself with some of the wonders you will encounter; such as the different types of animals and plants that thrive in this blooming environment. The forest’s varied elevations and terrains mean that there are several different ecological subsystems to discover all of which happily coexist in these endless protected grounds.

We start off by visiting the rainforest’s main focal point, the amazing and breathtaking Grand Etan Lake. Situated at the crater of one of Grenada’s extinct volcanoes; this imposing lake benefits from a unique surrounding flora. The rainforest around the lake has an exceptionally rich diversity of flora and fauna with rare orchids, colourful tropical birds, small frogs and lizards as well as meander trails around the area’s stunning waterfalls against the azure blue waters of the lake. During your time here you will be given the chance to feed the lake’s colourful fish, a long-time favourite of visitors of this place as lots of bright coloured fish swim up to the surface.

This brief and easy walk, suitable for all family members; will feature several points of interest to acquaint visitors with the area’s biodiversity and ecology. As we tread along your guide will point out the different types of trees and plants and the many varieties of flowers, wild orchids and lively fauna. And if you’re lucky enough you might even get a glimpse of the wild ‘Mona’ monkeys which reside in these parts.

Your rainforest experience will end with a taste of fresh fruit and a refreshing drink at the on-site restaurant. We will then give you an extra 15 minutes of leisure time so that you can use this opportunity to purchase fabulous souvenirs from the gift shop.

Afterwards we begin to make our way back towards St. George with a last stop at the amazing Annandale Waterfalls. One of Grenada’s smaller waterfalls; this is also a favourite point of interest for visitors with easy access to get to. The waterfall has a well tended path lined with fruit trees and flowers offering the most breathtaking panoramic views. Here you will be able to enjoy a soft leisurely walk to enjoy and fully take in the beauty of the surroundings. Alternatively you could opt for a swim in the inviting natural pools at the base of the waterfall.

Undoubtedly this is a day to admire and bond with the most beautiful and breathtaking of Grenada’s nature!
