Hike Fest

Over the last six years the Dominica Hotel & Tourism Association has organized “Hike Fest”. This annual hiking festival traditionally takes place in May with locals and visitors exploring hiking trails of varying levels of difficulty, island wide. It is the perfect time to discover and experience Dominica, meet new people and enjoy a day with nature.

HIKE FEST attracts many local hikers.  Visitors – hiking clubs and active individuals - find it an excellent opportunity to socialize and have fun exploring Dominica. The hiking festival is now being programmed along with Dominica’s Jazz & Creole festival which culminates on the Pentecost/Whit Monday holiday weekend.

 We invite you to visit Dominica for HIKE FEST during May 2014, or to pair up your Nature Isle experience with some great entertainment during HIKE & JAZZ, from June 1-8, 2014.

Check out all the fun on our Hike Fest Facebook page.
