The Moren Trois Pitons National Park is one of the natural highlights of Dominica, if not of all of the Caribbean Islands. It encompasses about 17,000 acres of Dominica's moutainous volcanic interior. It mostly consists of mountains, volcanos and primordial rainforest. There are also several fresh water lakes, a boiling lake and dozens of fumaroles. The variety of flowers, plants and small wildlife is stunning and therefore deserves a place on the Unesco World Heritage List alone.
It is named after Dominica's second highest peak, the Morne Trois Pitons, at almost 1400 meters above sea level.
The Moren Trois Pitons National Park is best explored on foot and there are many trails to choose from, ranging from easy half hour walks to rough day hikes.
To get to Laudat by car, take King George V St north from Roseau. The first left fork goes to Laudat and there is a sign to the village of Trafalgar as well. Both take about 15 to 20 minutes along some steep but decent roads.
Minibuses travel between the capital Roseau and the villages of Laudat and Trafalgar. Buses to Laudat take about 40 minutes and leave every other hour.
Roxy's Moutain Lodge in the village of Laudat offers midrange accommodation
The village of Trafalgar is located a short ride from Laudat. Here your will find several good hotels, including the Papillote Wilderness Retreat, a beautifully located lodge with some hot pools to enjoy after a day of walking.
