This must be the best bird watching place on St lucia. Silvanus is so in tune with his environment & knows his bird types, their calls & points them out for us to enjoy. We saw most of the endemic + 5 st Lucian parots in different areas 1 flew low past us so we could see its green back while another flew close as we tracked them. Other species were the st lucia oriole, scaly breasted thrasher,grey trembler, antillean euphonia, St lucia warbler,crested & other humingbirds, bananquit, king bird, bullfinch etc. We spent some hours with silvanus who showed us his crops, explained all the plants & their medicinal uses, he picked pink grapefruits from the trees & sampled other tastes & smells of plants with us. This was a relaxed walk with no hurry by a man passionate about his work eager to share that with everyone. Hard to beat for an authentic St lucia wildlife experience.
Keep going from Fond St Jacques up to Migny & follow the rough track to the top & take the left fork to the Eden Estate.

Visiting here was authentic with none of the 'staging' you see at better known tour sites. We had the very best experience on our individual tour with the organic farm's owner, Silvanus. He has been farming for 12 years and has just begun offering tours for birders and other nature lovers. We went to see as many endemic birds as possible (from St Lucia and also from the West Indies area). Silvanus was an excellent tour guide, clearly knowing well the individual birds, their songs, and where they prefer to be. We saw 15 bird species on his 10 acre property - including the St Lucia Oriole, St Lucia Warbler, 3 kinds of hummingbirds, a gray trembler and many others. Silvanus has built paths and steps around his property keeping in mind the best areas for birds to be found. In addition, we toured his large organic garden - he supplies local restaurants and grocery stores. We learned about what plants were used for decades ago, ate fresh grapefruit and oranges right off their trees and green beans growing in the field. Silvanus' English was excellent. He welcomes phone calls on his work mobile phone: 1-758-729-4882. Email: grandedenestate758@gmail.com.

Unlike other ‘outdoor adventures’ near Soufriere, this one is the real deal. On property owned by a local organic farmer, he led us on a hike that took us up through the untouched rainforest to the top of a ridge with 360 degree views from the Atlantic to the Caribbean Sea including a view of Petit Piton complete with a rainbow!

After that, we descended back into the tree canopy and ended up on his working organic farm where he took us through his crops and explained his methods. We even ate a few fresh samples right from the trees and ground!

Along the way the farmer took great care in pointing out the many native trees and plants and we even saw parrots, hawks and many other native birds.

The road to the farm is bumpy and largely unpaved but most any car or taxi can drive it.

The trail is narrow and somewhat steep in parts and a bit muddy at times, but well maintained with steps and handholds. Sneakers are fine but flip flops and sandals are not advised.

Any moderately fit person could do it, including teens and tweens. The unfit or kids under 5 might not enjoy it so much.
