We did the hike up Gros Piton. You are forced to use the guide service which we initially thought was a waste but turned out to be well worth it as the trail is not always obvious. Be prepared for a tough hike in the...More

More of a scramble than a hike with some technical sections (aided by ropes). Steep and fairly unrelenting with few viewpoints until the magnificent summit. Wet conditions would make both ascent and descent somewhat treacherous- better to go in good weather and ideally if previous...More

We had lunch at Ladera, a boutique hotel overlooking the Pitons. It was an amazing experience. We were situated midway up a moutain with a perfect view of the two peaks. It was a breathtaking view.

We visited the Pitons with Danny Boy our tour guide - just gorgeous here! We walked the Stairway to Heaven and bathed in the mud baths. There are many nearby attractions - we bought chocolate at Hotel Chocolat and ate at Fedo's local restaurant.

Traveling through the rainforest of St Lucia, you come to the town of Soufriere where you get glimpses of the Piton Mountains. As you get closer they appear as if they are growing out of the ocean. They are actually 3 mile apart, but look...More

These internationally famous mountains are impressive.....and best seen from the water. Would recommend taking a boat with Hackshaw's Charter Boats to get you there and up close.

Not sure who your provider is, but you would need to ask them. We were on a boat with about a dozen people, and no, no rest room with Spencer Ambrose.

A guide is required, although you do not have to book your trip through a property or company. If you handle it yourself, I believe the rate for the hike is a few dollars cheaper. The area is a United Nations World Heritage... More
