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.

It was a nice view

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.

We booked this tour through Viator and local operator Bamboo Tours. The driver and the guide were both friendly and informative!!. The hike was beautiful and challenging in some spots but was well worth it. The view from the top is priceless and the scenery you hike through is varied and so pretty. I recommend this to any avid hikers... More

The climb to the crater of Soufierre was challenging and fun. My wife and I decided to try this hike and was not disappointed. Bennie Man from Georgetown was our guide and I recommend that all visitors hire one. They are worth the price. The walk is about 1hr 30 mins to 2 hrs all uphill with two good rest... More

We ranged in age from 15 up to 68 and at times it was a struggle catching our breath. It took around 1hr 45 mins at a steady pace to get to the top. Water is essential as is a jumper or wind proof jacket for when you reach the top. The views are meant to be breathtaking (it was... More

We stayed at Buccament Bay and didn't just want to stay within the resort. The Volcano was the number one thing we wanted to see & do. We arranged our hike with Bamboo Adventures as they were much cheaper than arranged via the hotel or other operators we contacted. We were pre-advised of what to wear and bring. Water, Fruit...

Staying at the Buccament Bay Resort, we had the pleasure to have Frasier as our guide to the top of the volcano. First Frasier came to the resort to explain what we were going to do, what we needed to bring and what to wear. On the day he picked us up he also had drinks, snacks and even insect... More

I hiked the Soufriere volcano and I loved it. It is very well signalized and you can rent a car and do it by yourself without a guide, it doesn't take more than 2 hours one way, make sure you have water and snacks with you.

We hired Fraser as our guide who was superb. We left at 6 in the morning to avoid the heat but it was worth it. If you enjoy hiking I would highly recommend this.
