Biking is an excellent way to take in this country's natural
splendor, whether for long distance cycling along the coast's pristine
beaches and cliffs, or mountain biking to experience
pine forests in mountains complete with waterfalls and rivers. You will
discover places inaccessible to most visitors and discover the real Dominican
and trekking possibilities are abundant in the Dominican
Republic, especially in the Central Highlands. Not only do most of the country’s National
Parks and Protected Areas lend themselves to wilderness treks, but you have the chance for the ultimate trek to Pico
Duarte in the Armando Bermúdez National Park. The climb is strenuous, but the view on the way, and the exhilaration of making it to the top of the Caribbean, keep the climbers coming back year after year. At the height of 3,087meters (10,128 ft.) you will discover no better way to know the country than walking on it. So take your camera and allow plenty of time, and be ready for a real adventure.
riding adventures are limitless for beginning
and advanced riders alike. Those looking to fulfill their cowboy fantasies can find themselves on cattle drives, challenging wild bulls that stroll along the unpaved country roads, many of which meander past remote villages that beckon you back in time. Others may prefer galloping through grassy meadows, crossing rivers, picking mangos along the way, then finish by having lunch next to a cascading waterfall.
|Canyoning and cascading, called ‘canyoneering’ in the US, it the hottest form of adventure today. Coming into vogue in the ‘90’s, in its simplest form it is doing whatever it takes to get from point A to point B. This might include hiking, climbing, swimming, jumping and rappelling to the bottom of a river canyon, then finding the easiest exit out. These expeditions include a guide, and can be experienced anywhere with suitable and challenging terrain.
