My husband and I were in St Lucia for our wedding, and decided to hike up the Gros Piton the day before our wedding. I am not a sporty person, but am in reasonably good shape - I have to say it was the hardest hike I have ever done. It took about 4 hours to reach the top, and... More

As I said, you can't come to St. Lucia and not see the Pitons!!! Its a must get picture! I thought the best place to see them was when we were on the Tet Paul Trail. They are simply stunning.

If you're traveling to Saint Lucia, hiking the Pitons is one of the many things you can do. My husband and I were very happy that we chose to hike. You can get a guide at the bottom of the trailhead (you have to have one) and they will guide you on the way up. Our guide was wonderful and... More

We saw these beautiful Pitons from both the water and the land. They are absolutely stunning. You can not go to St. Lucia without taking a trip to see them. We drove around them, snorkeled in between them and dove in front of them. Pictures simply don't do them justice.

Whether you're simply seeing them from a distance or hiking your way up the trail, the Piton mountains will take your breath away.

What we considered a must do while in St.Lucia was to climb one of the Pitons. Since we are not avid climbers, we chose the Gros Piton. Our excursion started at the docks of Rodney Bay where we were picked up by Spencer Tours in one of their speed boats. It didn't take us long to get there, and of... More

If you're going to St Lucia, ya gotta go there. Saw it from the cruise ship and they were magnificent. Would love to go back and see it from the land side to see if it is as great from that view. Definitely think that a boat ride to view them from the ocean is warranted. Shows that there are... More

Gros Piton is an interesting trek and amazingly lush. A hot steep climb, but very do-able, and the guides set a reasonable pace, breaking it down into 4 x 30 minute sections. We walked in trainers which was absolutely fine. Our only disappointment was not seeing a nice 360 view at the top, its pretty overgrown and you only get... More

If you have the opportunity, take a boat ride around the island to see amazing views of the Pitons (I was able to get my Instagram-worthy shot.) However, the snorkeling nearby is not great. Right by the boat paths so water is very cloudy and there is honestly not much to see. Highlight of that trip was the rum punch.... More

Be prepared, I hike, this isn't a hike its a climb. Two hours up two hours down. A good test of your self not only physical but mental. If I knew what I was getting my self into I probably would have passed but I'm glad I didn't. The views are better on the way up, when you have a... More
