Spectacular Birding Excursion (combing scenic beauty and quality bird life)
This lovely location gives us the opportunity to see many endemics, lesser Antilles species and regional species with a back drop that is absolutely spectacular. The majestic Pitons, world heritage sites and national land marks. The views are breathtaking from Bouton and Desbott.
We trek the Northern mountain range of the town of Soufriere along a beautifully paved road of a small community called Bouton. We bird on the edge of a tropical rainforest and an Orchard and other fruit trees like mangoes, golden apples, cocoa, coffee, nutmeg and lovely flowering plants both native and exotic. Somewhat like an ecotone; the perfect setting for birds.
We then venture into the town of Soufriere to the Diamond Botanical Gardens to see the lovely flowers there, the birds, mineral baths and of course the Sulphur waterfall. The garden was established by the order of the great Napoleon himself in 1786 for the soldiers.
Last but not least, we visit officially the town of Soufriere. One of the first towns established in St. Lucia in 1746 and spend time at the harbor in an attempt to eye frigate birds and the occasional Osprey before heading back to the hotel/cruise ship.
