On this tour you will:
  • Board an air-conditioned mini bus for an approximate one-hour drive to Dunn's River Falls. After a comfort stop, meet your guide, who will provide a safety orientation. Then, begin your optional climb up the 600-foot, cascading falls.
  • Exit the craft market after your approximate one-hour visit and reboard the transportation for the short drive to Mystic Mountain. Upon arrival, embark the Sky Explorer chairlift for the approximate 15-minute ride through the thick tropical forest overlooking the turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea. The chairlift ride goes through the top of the canopy, providing glimpses of the cliff-lined north shore and the emerald treetops.
  • Arrive at the top and enjoy approximately 45 minutes exploring the educational pavilion, featuring interactive Jamaican history exhibits. Next, visit the mesmerizing hummingbird and butterfly garden.
  • Finally, a short walk away is the crown jewel of Rainforest Bobsled Jamaica at Mystic Mountain: the Bobsled Jamaica attraction. This signature ride features a gravity-driven plunge through 3,280 feet of twists and turns on a specially designed sled evoking the glory of the 1988 and 1992 Jamaican Olympic bobsled teams. The track for the bobsled run was laid specifically to avoid disturbing the natural landscape. As such, the trail curves around ancient trees, hugs majestic cliff faces and limestone outcroppings looming over the shoreline, and ushers you through narrow chutes of dense rainforest. You control your own descent with an in-sled handbrake, allowing for either a leisurely tour through the forest or a pulse-quickening dive to the bottom of the mountain.
  • Once your bobsled slides to a graceful stop, you are slowly raised back through the rainforest to the top of the mountain, completing the entire circuit in about 8 minutes.
  • Savor a delicious Jamaican-inspired lunch, at leisure and included in this tour.
  • Walk up the observation tower for spectacular views of the north shore, including the town of Ocho Rios and the harbor. Plus, you may enjoy the infinity pool and waterslide. When it is time to depart, simply ride the Sky Explorer back to the base of the mountain, then board your transportation for your return to Falmouth.
