Amazing Feature

The Pitons are quite amazing. You can walk up them, but from what others said in our hotel, it is very strenuous, especially in the heat. Tet paul is much more reasonable.

My boyfriend and I are pretty fit. He goes to the gym almost everyday but focuses more on upper body exercises, whereas I focus on lower body and cardio. We thought that the gros Pitons wouldn't be a problem. Little to our surprise it was one of the most strenuous things we've ever done. Luckily I weight about 110 lbs... More

Gros Piton and Petit Piton are two majestic mountains found in St. Lucia. The Pitons are both large, one being shorter than the other, so the terms 'Gros' and 'Petit' are used to differentiate between them. There are several mineral springs nestled in these mountains that are also great for the most adventurous hikers! We took endless photographs against this... More

If you're on St Lucia you must come down to see the Pitons, be it from land or sea. Partial view from Soufriere town, but best from the sea. We took a yacht from our hotel which gave many angles. We then stopped to snorkel at the coral below. We also had lunch at Laudera restaurant which looks right out... More

Absolutely gorgeous place, looks just like the post card. Very quiet, would suggest going to see as part of an island tour. The hill down is very steep, hot and long, they do a free sort of shuttle bus (which is a buggy) that you can get to take you down. would suggest doing that also. 5* hotel situation on... More

Very beautiful. Our tour took us to the mountains from a distance and then down to a beach near the Pitons. Although the beach wasn't the best of beaches the view was one not to be missed (I can't seem to upload that particular picture here). Glad we went during summer months as we hear the tour stops are crowded... More

Their website claims this is a "leisurely hike," yet I showed up and climbed a damn mountain. There's no way this is legal. Unless you are an experienced hiker, do NOT sign up for this. It is not a nature trail whatsoever. It fits perfectly into the definition of a mountain. We were a group of 9 and had 3... More

I booked this excursion through our hotel and was assigned a tour guide at the beginning. Our guide was Mavel who was pretty useless, great texter (insert sarcasm) and she was quiet the entire time (even though we asked her numerous times to at least talk to us) and we had to ask her to take pictures. This climb was... More

An amazing hike to do while visiting the island! Bring lots of water and definitely a camera for the view at the top! We did a guided hike, so transportation there from our Resort was provided, which was good. But the hike itself could be done without one probably, if they even allow it. However, the nice thing about having... More

This is a "must-do" while in St. Lucia . . . but do your homework! Although tackling Gros Piton is often advertised as a "hike," the adventure is in fact an arduous climb. Now 57 years old, if going again, I would take hiking shoes, obtain my own guide (to allow ascending and descending at my own pace vice with... More
