We didn’t get the clear view from the top but it was certainly worth the trek. We were pelted with winds, rain, sulfuric clouds of gas and it was all amazing and worthwhile. Be sure to arrive early to get a decent parking spot and...More

We had been on Basse Terre for a week and had been carefully watching both the weather report and the top of the mountain, hoping to get a clear day, and boy, did we! We were at the parking lot for Bains Jaunes at 0800,...More

We climbed the volcano with a 'tour' group, we were about 16, arrived in land rovers and were on climb by 8am. Our guide rushed us through the climb, which was a little disappointing, no time to take in our surrondings. Was a hard, but...More

We hiked to the summit of La Soufriere this morning. After reading others’ reviews we arrived early at 8 am and took the 2nd to last parking space near the Bains Jaunes. We recommend backing into your space for an easier exit. It took our...More

Our hike experience was one of the many wet, windy, and foggy. 2 minutes into the hike it was raining heavy, followed up by the high winds and sideways sleet. This is expected since the volcano is in the rainforest. Bring plenty of dry clothes...More

I would recommend this for whoever is into hikes and/or exercises regularly. In some places, the views are very nice, but overall, I for one was a bit disappointed - I felt like it was not worth the effort. It took a long time to...More

It was raining a little during the hike but still it was a great experience. Did not see any view from the top because of the clouds and the rain but the hike itself was very entertaining. Some pats were quite steep. My friends went...More

The island doesn't offer much. It has a few beaches mainly on the Grand side which are pretty. On this mountainous side there are a few beaches here and there. We stayed in Deshaies and it took us 1.5 hrs drive to get here, remember...More

highly recommended if you stay in Guadalupe. Bring with you at least a liter of water and a wind jacket. Wear proper shoes because it is slepery. You dont need to start to early in the morning, but consider the daylight for the visit.

This walk can be difficult, at times it resembles rockclimbing and going up a staircase of stones. It took us 3-4 hours to go up and down in total. At the top it was very windy and rainy. We got cold. We waited in a...More
