What to do you in St. Lucia?  If you feel physically ready for a challenge, hike and conquer the Gross Piton hike it will be worth the challenge and unforgettable outdoor experience.  No pressure to reach the top, if you are not feeling up to the 4-5 hour (roundtrip) hike, climb half the Piton for the experience. You will not however, experience... More

We stayed in the south of the island and constantly had views of the pitons. They are absolutely beautiful and you can hike them! We only did the Gros Piton and it was awesome.

Adventurous? Take a Hike to the Pitons! Better accessed by boat than by ground transportation. The second highest point on the island. Not for the faint of heart. The surrounding area has been the location for several movie & TV shows; and a favourite for many Hollywood celebrities

I am in moderate physical shape. The Gros Piton hike was the most challenging hike that I can recall. I would recommend good trek shoes as I felt almost every rock beneath my foot, especially on the hike down. Water, snacks, and insect repellent is a Must. The price per person is $35 US. Our guide was moving quckly and... More

Great views from the top We did the 4 hour hike A rocky and challenging climb for people with middle level fitness though the views from the top were quite worth the climb. A bit of adventure along with some scenic view watching made it a worthy climb.

I visited the Pitons while on my visit to St. Lucia. First of all, the drive though long, is breath-taking as you experience driving through the lush rainforest. This is a must for any Geography enthusiast. I did not hike the Pitons but simply got to see these majestic mountains in all their glory. They are absolutely beautiful and it... More

My friends and I were able to view the Pitons while on the way to the Sulphur Springs at Soufriere. For those without the inclination or time to hike to them, this is one of the best ways to experience them. They are truly breathtaking.

We got dropped off at the beach from a water taxi and met by our guide Akim. The entire hike up and down took under four hours. A few things to know about this hike: -Bring extra water. We were dripping sweat from the hike and humidity and ran out of water by the end. That's after we bought two... More
