We "climbed" the Pitons in the quickest and most spectacular way with St. Lucia helicopters, flying up and over the Gros Piton on our return to the airport. We also saw the Pitons from the water on our way into the harbor of Soufriere.

The twin pitons are a island staple that must be seen when traveling to St Lucia. We were able to snorkel between the pitons for a surreal experience. Highly recommended. Although we wanted to hike the pitons, justifying spending $300 for a tour company to take us there just to hike was not feasible since we hike the White Mountains... More

Left at 615am and made it to top and back down by 1130am. In our group of 5 (aged 24-44) we had one extremely physically fit, three in very good shape and one who rarely exercises. All made it to the top but was extremely taxing on the unfit one. She thought she would stop at the halfway point but... More

Definitively not an easy hike. Never mind the tour operators telling you otherwise it is not a walk in the park. There are a few factors contributing to the difficulty: First it's the terrain:before reaching half way you are already climbing using your hands. Second the heat , lower parts are covered by vegetation but you got the occasional clearing... More

My husband, daughter and I climbed the Pitons. We started at sea level. Most tour guides start at 600 feet. Our daughter climbed to the top. My husband and I who are 69 climbed half way. Amazing views. Go early and bring a lot of water because it gets hot fast.

Its not a hike not a trail- its a very steep climb up a rocky mountain--the ascent is difficult but the descent is much more challenging.. You get very little information nor guidance from the guides and the posts and handrails that you rely on are often quite rickety and in poor repair. This i s a potentially dangerous excursion....

We cruised the coast of St. Lucia on an excursion which came very close to the famed Pitons, which are volcanic formations coming up from the sea. We also cruised through Marigot Bay which is beautiful. Our crew was great and served complimentary drinks and snacks. We enjoyed our tour!

St. Lucia was our second port stop. We bought shore excursion that will take you near the Pitons on a boat. The boat trip was more than four hours round trip. St. Lucia is a beautiful island with it's bountiful natural beauty. Great views along the way going to the Pitons. We actually stop in a nice small beach for... More

This is not an easy hike! My hubby & I hike all the time in North Carolina even Profile Trail at Grandfather Mountain but this one was a tough one for us! Going up was very tough and each half mile it got just a little more difficult! It was really tough but the views are outstanding of Petit Piton,... More

We saw the Pitons as our ship left St. Lucia.. they were absolutely lovely... rising up out of the water. We stopped in the bay to allow viewing... stunning. As we now understand it, there are various hiking trails up each..
