The Route de la Trace (N3) winds up into the mountains north from Fort-de-France, following a route cut by the Jesuits in the 17th century.

The Route takes visitors through a lush rainforest and historic towns, and provides access to hiking trails.  Islanders like to say that the Jesuits’ fondness for rum accounts for the twisting nature of the road.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
