Ajoupa Bouillon is located in the north of the island of Martinique, 40 km from Fort-de-France and to the east of Mount Pelée. Privileged place for nature lovers, the town is the starting point of many excursions. That of the Cournan ridge, Trianon and the Gorges de la Falaise!
In the heart of a landscape where vegetation is king, start your exploration at the center of the Earth.
From Ajoupa-Bouillon, take the direction of Saint-Pierre, until you see a sign indicating "Les Gorges de la Falaise". Very practical, a parking lot allows you to leave your vehicle, which will be waiting for you during this one-hour walk.
The Gorges de la Falaise is a 1 km hike along the Falaise River. It is not an excursion that requires a lot of time, apart from the drive to the communes of CAP Nord Martinique. It lasts one hour, with a difference in altitude of 80 m.
No need to block a particular day in your already busy week to discover the island of flowers. The trail is open from Monday to Sunday, from 8 am to 5 pm (last departure at 4 pm).
Access is not free (Adult 7 €; Child 4 €). It requires the accompaniment of a guide to ensure your safety throughout the walk. It can be done with family or friends for more fun!
As mentioned, access to the hiking trail must be accompanied by a guide. Indeed, safety is a must in the vicinity of the waterfall. The trail may be closed in case of heavy rain. Be sure to call ahead of your visit to guarantee your activity in the heart of this lush paradise.

It is important to know that access to the waterfall requires climbing, sliding and jumping. Although the course is recommended for those with a sporty profile, it is still accessible. Children are welcome and all departures are made with a licensed guide.
The bed of the Falaise River is nothing more or less than a torrent flowing down the slopes of Mount Pelee. The river is surrounded by two cliffs covered with vegetation. The pure water is at a pleasant temperature of 22° (ideal on hot days in Martinique!). Go from streams to streams and then to real swimming pools. The most adventurous will be able to show their diving skills, you arrive in front of a waterfall of several tens of meters high. A real natural Italian shower. A guaranteed photo spot!
You are now almost ready for the adventure to the assault of this canyon in the heart of the island. In your bag, be sure to pack a bathing suit and towel, old sneakers or hiking boots. For your memories of your adventure in the epicenter of Caribbean sweetness, a waterproof camera or a GoPro are more than recommended!
Now you're ready for your adventure!
