One of the longest detachable cable cars in the world with a length of 6.6km (4.1miles) is to be built in the island state of Dominica. The cable car project will allow safe and fast passage to Boiling Lake. A route that would otherwise take 6 hours by hiking can be covered easily and comfortably in 20 minutes. Thus, visitors can immerse themselves in the heart of the Caribbean rainforest in a very short time and explore the unique nature of the country.
In order to be able to guarantee ecologically and economically sustainable development, the entire customer journey was developed as authentically as possible and adapted to the location. In addition to the basic infrastructure, a retail area and a food court were planned in the area of the valley station, where the local specials of the country can be presented. In the area around the mountain station there is a restaurant with a viewing terrace, viewing platforms and, as a highlight, a 6m high statue of the national bird "Sisserou" at the highest hillpoint. From the top station, visitors can hike along a hiking trail to the stunning Boiling Lake, the second largest hot spring in the world, in minutes.
The project was developed together with our partner Outdoor Engineers AG.
