A UNESCO biosphere reserve, Guadeloupe National Park encompasses tropical rainforests, lush coastal forests, waterfalls, and mangroves.

The reserve shelters around 800 different trees and flowers (including 100 types of orchids) and numerous birds and mammal species. Admire the picturesque landscape from behind the wheel, driving along the 25 km (16 mi) long Traversee road.
