Explore the tropical forest
Just below Paradise Peak, the highest point on the island of St. Martin, there is a secret eco-tourism sanctuary that offers adventures in the trees. The tropical forest stretches as far as the eye can see and there are some exceptional treetop adventure trails here. This is your chance to explore the forest eco-system, along the walkways, rope bridges,observation platforms, and ziplines. You’ll be able to patiently observe the surrounding environment, without disturbing the wildlife, to understand the history and issues faced today in the natural environment. As you observe, you pass from tree to tree. You are likely to see monkeys and multicolored birds up in the mango and mahogany trees. Some of these remarkable trees are over 200 years old.
Authentic and reinvigorating experience
You need to make sure you have comfortable clothing and closed shoes. The instructors will provide you with gloves and safety harnesses. There are two types of trails available.
The session begins with a short briefing on the equipment and how to attach your climbing harness and how to use a D-ring. Your treetop adventure begins at Paradise Peak and lasts around an hour. The underlying theme is always ecology and respect for the environment. This authentic and reinvigorating experience is an opportunity for travelers to see the island in a different way, far from the white sandy beaches.
The experience ends with some thrills and a rush of adrenaline as you whizz along the zip wire all the way down to Loterie Farm – a former sugar cane plantation from the 18th century. You’ll pretty much be able to fly when you leave!
After all that effort, you deserve a treat! Your treetop climbing activity in St. Martin is not over yet. The Loterie Farm swimming pool is the perfect place to end on a peaceful note, swimming in spring water. Nestled in the forest, hidden between the trees, some huts and sun loungers await you, as a couple or with friends, for some unforgettable quality time in a swimsuit. Make some precious memories at the “L’Eau Lounge” swimming area and “Jungle Room” restaurant while enjoying a drink or some Caribbean cuisine. You’ll be able to relax, laugh, swim or eat, at the foot of the mango trees and ficus. Iguanas wander around this garden of Eden, in their usual lazy manner, stopping off to bask in the sun. You’ll thoroughly enjoy the pleasure of this authentic experience, and you’ll feel lucky to experience this unique ecosystem.
