We drove to these marvelous wonders on a round the island road trip. Really worth seeing...apparently you can climb them if you feel the urge...we just looked at them! Hunt out the nearby volcano where you can see bubbling pools and come out smelling of...More

We did Gros Piton, you can either go as a group or rent a car and drive up yourself ( which we did ). You arrive in a small village where you pay a small fee/tax to climb and get a guide. Arrive EARLY, its...More

This is a must for anyone visiting St. Lucia. It costs 55EC if you're a student/local (85EC tourist) and this is to pay for the guide. It is split into 4 sections. The first 2 are moderate intensity. The view at the half way point...More

Iconic symbols and natural treasures of Saint Lucia. There are lots of hiking tours to climb them; it takes at least 3 hours.

Agreeing to all the reviewers here that said this hike was VERY challenging. My wife and I left Ladera property around 7:30am in our rental car and then you turn into this side road that is very narrow, twisty/turny road to get there which was...More

From the moment we booked our trip to St. Lucia I knew I wanted to climb Gros Piton (that was before I got to the island and realized how you can go about hiking Petite Piton as well)!! We reached the starting point via rental...More

We climbed the kalalua trial n Kauai which was 8 miles to hanakapia falls. How does this hike compare? Has anyone done both? I run marathons but don't hike.

I have not hiked that trail, but I am a runner and have done some hiking in the US. It is so different, because of the incline and the heat, than any other hike, more like a climb. You are pretty much constantly walking up... More

Hi. Curious if you remember what the Dive Operation was called? Looking for one based in Soufriere's.

We will be arriving for the day by cruise ship. It seems that the time needed to travel to/from and hike Gros Piton is not practical with our time constraints of docking from 8:00-5:00. Any suggestions for alternating hiking opportunities? We were looking forward to taking a break from visiting beaches, snorkeling and swimming. Diamond Falls, or Pigeon Island, perhaps? Thanks
