If headed for the Pitons anchor between the and skip Soufriere which is a pit peopled by rip off artists. The Pitons are lovely and worth seeing.
This is definitely a trip to do when you visit St Lucia. I saw some of the most breathtaking views. If you can usually the hotel or the rep will provide you with an excursion where you travel down on a boat dependent on your hotel location then travel up to the pitons and do the trek. It isn't very... More
We enjoyed views of these impressive mountain formations on a drive to visit the Soufriere volcano. Truly a highlight, and iconic element of the landscapr of beautiful St Lucia! A group of us hired a taxi while on a port visit during a Caribbean cruise - and this was part of the trip. Definitely a cost-effective option, and good way... More
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, however when you are there words cannot express the beauty. The climb is one that you will never forget if you can make it all the way. The guide told me that 30-50% of all people who go do not make it as it is literally a 2,000 foot climb and... More
Driving the scenic route from Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) to Castries you will have many opportunities to view “The Pitons”. From whatever point you see them the view is awesome. Unfortunately, I only see them from a distance but they are a highlight when visiting St Lucia and there are many tours to see them up close and personal whether... More
My husband and I were on a cruise and chose this ad one of our excursions. It was about an hour and a half ride to here, once we got here we were greeted by our tour guide, she was very nice and knowledgeable. We were offered walking sticks and we were off, our tour guide would tell us about... More
We hiked goes piton from the beach (you can take a taxi to a higher level (about 500' higher up). You MUST have a guide to hike, which costs about $60usd. The hike is not easy. But for fit hikers it is a great adventure with a couple of beautiful view points. Take water and a small snack. It does... More
At first your excited to get to the top to see the entire island from the summit. Afer the quarter point things get physically tougher. Half way has a great view point. There you can decide to continue the more straight up ascent. It is about two miles up with every step you take going up. This more of a... More
Arrived by speed boat from the cruise peer, did a hike halfway up Gros Piton and then beached it at Jalousie Beach. Great, great scenery!
Gross Piton is what brought us to St. Lucia. I read a magazine article about climbing Gross Piton and I thought…I can do that! So in mid February 2014 my wife and I did the climb. Now first off there are two starting points to this hike. One is at Anse L'Ivrogne beach the other is at the village road... More
