Activity details

Rivière de la cascade aux écrevisses

Your circuit is centered around north Basse Terre. You will go on a loop which will take you back to your starting point (cruise terminal, Gosier, Sainte-Anne, or Saint-François) through the Route de la Traversée. This activity is recommended for cruise passengers in particular because it limits the number of kilometers traveled, but this activity is also open to tourists in the communes of Gosier, Sainte-Anne, and Saint-François.

All you have to do is choose between visiting one of the 2 most beautiful parks in Guadeloupe (botanical garden or parc des Mamelles) and going tree climbing in the tropical forest. The well-balanced circuit will take you to get a glimpse of the most beautiful beaches in North Basse Terre (Plage de Cluny and Grande Anse) before dropping you off at the entrance of the park that you have chosen.

Botanical Garden : This floral and Jardin Botanique, this 5-hectare floral and wildlife park, formerly owned by Coluche, welcomes more than 120,000 visitors per year. It took 40 employees and 14 months of work to create one of the richest botanical gardens in the Caribbean 20 years ago. It presents an impressive range of tropical flowers and plants. More than 1,000 species are in this park, including bougainvilleas, hibiscus, torch ginger, but there is also a wide variety of trees, such as kapok trees, baobab trees, sausage trees, breadfruit trees, not to mention the only talipot palm in Guadeloupe. Children will enjoy the aviary in which they can feed these wonderful little parrots known as lorikeets.

Parc des Mamelles : This park, also known as the Guadeloupe ZOO, allows you to observe protected species of birds, land and sea mammals, reptiles, and fish at the heart of the tropical forest and even from perched nacelles on an aerial path between the treetops. You will watch a myriad of animals and plants in this exceptional environment. Please note that this park is part of a new generation of zoos committed to the protection and preservation of the wildlife. As a result, it earned the EAZA Quality label, which only 15% of European zoos have.


Tree climbing : 5 different tracks for all levels, starting from the age of 3. After an introduction and a small approach, you will be to soar on the kilometer of zip-lines that make the full track. You need to measure at least 1m 20 (age 8) to fully enjoy this activity. This activity is not suitable for pregnant women, people with heart problems, people prone to vertigo, or people who weigh more than 100 kg (220 lbs).

After a meal (you can bring your own meal or sandwich) at the Mamelles restaurant (not included), you will continue on the route de la traversée to get to the cascade aux écrevisses. You will be to bathe in the waterfall and in the river that borders the entrance to the waterfall. There is nothing like ending a day with a dip in a river. You will come out perfectly relaxed and ready to get back on the road to your boat or
