Port of Spain, Trinidad – September 16, 2015 – The dual-island nation of Trinidad & Tobago continues to blaze a pioneering trail of eco-tourism with the development and recent unveiling of the Eco-Adventure Trails Project. Officially launched on Saturday, August 22 by Trinidad & Tobago’s Ministry of Tourism, Phase 1 of the project encompasses over five and a half miles of scenic trails stretching from Grande Rivière to Sans Souci on the Northeast coast of Trinidad.
Shaded by the forest canopy and bordered by lush foliage, cool springs, and spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Grande Rivière to Sans Souci trail is part of a wider project to rehabilitate over 600 miles of existing trails throughout the destination over a five-year period. These rehabilitated trails follow ancient pathways that were once traversed by Trinidad & Tobago’s First Peoples, the indigenous Amerindians of the islands. In addition to a walk through the island’s history, the trails project will also offer locals and visitors an extensive range of eco-adventure and leisure experiences including: zip lining; biking; bird watching; sea bathing and nature photography.
Managed by Trinidad & Tobago Tourism Development Company Limited (TDC), the project is being implemented by the Trinidad & Tobago In-Coming Tour Operators’ Association. The nature trails project is just one of several initiatives being undertaken to improve the quality of Trinidad & Tobago’s tourism product and attract international visitors who appreciate authentic eco-experiences.
