A must see in St Lucia. My friends (a bunch of girls) and I went here for the day. One of nature's most extra ordinary and majestic scenes.

On May 13, 2015 I climbed Gros Piton, starting from a beach south of the mountain. My climb was arranged by Spencer Ambrose Tours (which I highly recommend). My wife and I were visiting St. Lucia on a cruise and had a limited amount of time to complete the hike. Upon arriving at the beach by boat around 9:30 am,... More

Pros: Great view, very challenging even if at moderate fitness levels, will be the highlight of your trip Cons: Fast pace set even if inexperienced, no "brief" or "climbing tips/pointers" given, very demanding My wife and I visited St. Lucia and made it to the top on our honeymoon. We are both around what I would assume is above-average physical... More

We made it. It was NOT easy. Background: 55 year old female; 59 year old male. Relatively good physical condition. Previous knee operations for both....hikers from back home in upstate NY, so not newbies. Things you should know: It is a lot of uphill and a LOT of downhill so most of your focus/eyes will be on the ground, except... More

My husband and I went on a jeep safari tour to the Pitons and it was everything that I thought it would be! The scenery was absolutely stunning!

I was unprepared for the difficult level of climbing. It is a rock climb, not a hike! Only made it half way. The pace was far too fast to keep up.

We booked this climb through the Sugar Beach resort. Our cab driver picked us up at 8am and we began hiking Gros Piton after they explained how long the hike was and what to expect on the way up. There are rest spots every 30 minutes with the climb taking 2 hrs. up and 1 1/2 hrs down. It is... More

This is SO much harder than it looks! Props to the St. Lucian guides and local residents that do this 5 days a week!!! We did this excursion through Sandals Grande St. Lucian Resort. It was $290 for everything. Our day started early at 6:30am. Our guide was great, he picked us up at Sandals and took us to the... More
