Ziplining in St Lucia

I’m not a very good girlfriend at times. Tom is a little scared of heights, something I didn’t really think about when I signed us up for our two day activities in St Lucia- hiking the Pitons and zip lining. Luckily he is a good sport and agreed to both of them without much fuss.

We had a brilliant group from Sandals in our zip lining tour, which made it a lot of fun. The girls were all very supportive of each other, it definitely felt less scary. The lovely guides took our cameras to snap pictures and video as we went round the twelve lines, each of varying height, speed and length. The highest elevation is 150ft, with an 800ft cable running as the longest cable line.

I was a little nervous on the first few lines, as there was definitely no practise run before our first line. We were hooked on, one hand on the line behind us to control speed and stopping, and one holding on to the harness to keep straight. I did regret wearing short shorts, they weren’t the easiest to wear in the harness, nor the most flattering.

I cannot recommend Treetop Adventures¬†¬†enough, we had a brilliant time, with plenty of water and laughs provided along the way. It’s actually the number one voted activity to do in St Lucia on Tripadvisor!

    My favorite part of this post is the hair nets which both you and Tom are wearing. More details behind that please?!
