The National Park in Basse-Terre is certainly one of the highlights in a visit to Guadeloupe. The island is a part of France being a Dom, departement outre-mer (overseas departement) and has all the vestiges of France that you would expect to find on the...More

I can't imagine who would write a bad review of the outdoors or a park. So, that's not the information that helps. With that in mind, the only useful information I can offer for visiting this incredible place is that the trails throughout Guadeloupe are...More

It is still quiet, not too touristic. There are beautiful hikes, waterfalls, plants, trees, birds, flowers. The hikes near maison de la foret are beautiful( be aware of slippery wet areas. The hike from col de mammelle towards col de petit bourg is very steep,...More

We went on a 3 hour hike to the Premiere Waterfall in Chutes de Carbet and had a great time on this challenging hike despite the foggy weather.

If you wish a one hour hike, that is called "easy" (facile) but is a little more challenging because of the slippery mud and rocks, it is very beautiful and let's you right inside a tropical forest with streams, rocks, large canopy trees making it...More

This easy to get to National Park should be on your list when in Guadeloupe. The extreme lushness of the rainforest is mind-blowing and great for kids and adults alike. Some areas are cool and slightly foggy while others are warm and jungle like. Well...More

We went hiking with our 3 children aged 5,10 and 12. A 2,5 hour walk , and we ended up taking a bath in a incredible waterfall. I recommend to wear proper shoes, and also bring a raincoat. A must-do

I just barely skimmed the surface doing some of the most common trips right off the traverse road that goes through the middle. I stopped at the Cascade aux Ecrevisses and explored both sides. One side has the actual falls that you can swim in...More

The park is enormous, making up most of the island. There are countless trails, ranging in all difficulty levels. Some as easy as a 100-yard stroll from the road, others lasting up to 4 hours. During our time here, the park was always rainy, even...More

The park is a bit hard to find. Once there, it is spectacular. We only scratched-the-surface , but we look forward to our next trip to continue our exploration.

You may be able to find a tour that will take you, but more than likely your best bet is to rent a car and drive. When up there I saw a couple vans with groups, but most people were in their own cars.I'm sure you can rent... More
