Cold Soufriere

A unique sulphur spring

Experience sulphur and calcium rich water in this cold sulphur springs along the picturesque north coast

Cold Soufriere

Bubbling from a volcanic crater within Morne Aux Diables is the Cold Soufriere. While Dominica is known for its hot springs and boiling lakes which spurt steaming mineral water from below ground, Cold Soufriere is a unique volcanic manifestation. The water here is not hot, but cold, though the same features as other hot springs are evident.

Sulphuric gas fills the air and the rock formation is marked by eerie grey, white and clay porous stone. Acidic, healing water seeps up from the ground almost eerily trickling down into small streams and hissing at times of drought. Interesting animals populate the pools and are quite a site for the curious traveller.

A short eight minute walk through open farm lands will get you there and Dominica’s Cold Soufriere is definitely a must-see for anyone interested in observing unique earth forms.
