Booked the 'Tranopy Zipline tour' through the Virgin Holiday rep. Minibus collected wife and I at allocated time from Hotel reception, and after 10-15 minute trip, arrived at our destination.
As we had brought a bag with us, we were required to hire a locker to put this plus any valuables in (keep your camera for the many photo and video opportunities ahead.

I cannot remember the names of our 2 guides but they were GOOD. They kitted us out with straps, harnesses, hair nets and helmets (quite a sight), fitted, checked and then divided into groups of 8. We were led to a practice line to get those that had not done a line before, familiar to the procedure.

Trams, in which you sit in twos, took us up into the higher areas of the forest, and our guide pointed out many interesting parts of the flora.

A hike down through the forest, after leaving the tram, brought us to the 1st zip line. Once connected to the 2 safety lines, you let the harness take your weight, cross your ankles , hold onto the T bar and go. Previous tours I've been on, you use a rigger's glove to control and stop yourself on the line. This time it's one of the guides who stops you.

After about 10 lines, (the last one 500ft long and a good one to finish on), we headed back up the trail to the tram for journey back to base. A complementary bottle of water, and drink in the cafe followed, and then a quick look around the gift shop. Retrieved bag from locker, returned key and headed back to resort.

Quite an experience, with video to remind us of the day.

We had a really fun time zipping along in the rain forest. If you haven't done it yet, you must give it a try. You won't regret it. Really nice place and very organized.

This is by far one of the best excursions in St. Lucia. It is suitable for families with kids of all ages.
The attraction is about 30 min ride from Reduit Beach. The tram ride through the rain forest is exciting as well as educational. We got to see a lot of exotic plants and birds. The hike from the tram and back and 9 platform zip line were nice as well.
On the way back the tram is so high that you can see both sides of the island, Atlantic as well as Caribbean.

My husband and I went zip lining here last week and had such an amazing time. The company was great especially since I went back and forth about requiring pickup a few times. My husband and I were lucky enough to be paired up with a delightful brother and sister duo from a cruise ship and no one else! We had two amazing zip liners with us that were so fun and made the whole experience even more amazing. They taught us about the trees and flowers all around us and made us feel safe while zipping about from platform to platform in the skies. It was such a fun time and one of our favorite things we did while on the island!
