The La Soufriere Cross Country Trail winds its way from sea level up to the top of the majestic La Soufriere Volcano (4048ft/ 1178m). Granite cliffs reach for the sky, giving way to sweeping valleys and deep gorges and eventually the immense volcanic crater. The walk to the crater is moderately difficult, and takes about two hours uphill from the windward side.

The La Soufriere Cross Country Trail snakes across the width of St Vincent, and can be walked from either the leeward or windward coast. The total trail is approximately 9 miles (15 km) long and offers breath-taking panoramic views of the surrounding land and seascape and close encounters with fauna.

We did the trail from the leeward side from Richmond Vale. I couldn't recommend it more if you're visiting St. Vincent.

You can't visit St. Vincent and not take a hike up to the peak of La Soufriere. Yes, it's a long trek (2 hours on the windward side, 4 hours on the leeward) but once you get to the summit, the views are breath taking! Having made the trek a few times myself, it doesn't get easier (LOL). At least... More

Chris took us up the volcano which was one heck of a trek but once on the top well worth the sweat and work! Bring lots of water and a snack to eat for energy. Took us 5 and a half hours up and down! Great!

La Soufriere is a beautiful volcano, just in front of the Caribbean Sea, which makes it an outstanding place for amazing views. I've been there twice and I would love to go back again! I went there with Richmond Vale Hiking and Diving Center, which I consider now as my own family! Worth going, beautiful, not so demanding and refreshing... More

Hiked up this beautiful trail from a banana plantation. Started off through dense jungle which gradually got thinner and Shorter as we gained altitude. The clouds were changing all the time. Seems to always be clouds in the Mountains here. First part of the hike was for me hard as i was dehydrated and had a stomach bug so the... More

Was a long trek, but finally made it to the top in 2 hours. If you have small children, hold onto them as you get near the rim as the 2,000 ft drop is a bit frightening and there are no guard rails. Very impressive.

Breathtaking views along the way and at the top! Hike will take your breath away literally because it's a moderately strenuous hike. Not long though. 90mins up and down at a little above average fitness.

It's really a long walk going up and going down it took us almost 4 hours to go up and down but it was. Really nice feeling to reach the top.
