We have hiked in many of the places we visited, but this is the first time we had to take a guide. The Pitons are a UNESCO heritage site and you cannot do it without a guide, which is fine, but I hated the whole rush of the event. We were told that the estimated time for the hike was... More

Pitons are beautiful! Climbing was challenging & fun! but pricey! Experiencing the Pitons from sea, land & above is an incredible site. Especially while driving from Castries towards Soufriere! In addition, we decided to climb the Gros Piton. It was an incredible experience! Fun & challenging! Our only turn down is that this has got to be the most we've... More

Took a catamaran cruise to see the Pitons. What a great site to see these two mountains dominating the island. Great snorkelling also at the foot of the Pitons. A day to remember in St Lucia

We took a ride out to the Pitons on a catamaran that also stopped at a couple of pretty beaches on this lovely island on the way. We sailed near the Pitons but didn't land. I know they can be scaled, but to my amateur eye, they looked pretty steep for a casual climb. They were beautiful though, and inspiring... More

If I wanted to do just one thing during our 11-day stay in Gros Islet St. Lucia, it was this as my 70th birthday ( wife 67 ) challenge, so we booked through a travel rep in the hotel in our 1st few days. Quite pricey we thought but everything was included, jeep transport, mini-breakfast halfway, guides fee, full lunch... More

So we've decided to give it a go, hike the Gros Piton. How tondo it? There is a bus to the Gros Piton trail, its a Veux Fort - Chouisel bus. Before taking the bus ask the driver if he can actually drive past the last stop and drop you off at the beginning of the Piton trail. All of... More

We wanted to climb Gros Piton, so we contacted Janus and his team at Real St. Lucia Tours. They are the people to contact if you want to climb this mountain. We arrived in Castries on a cruise ship. We had made prior arrangements for our party of four to hike Gros Piton. We were supposed to meet our tour... More

The wife and I took a catamaran sail and snorkel tour to a couple beaches in St. Lucia with the final stop close to the beautiful Pitons. We both had a great time!
