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.

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.

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
