Beautiful and a Challenge Climb

Beautiful mountains. We climbed the Gros Piton. It was definitely challenging. I highly recommend the tour. Don't forget to bring a good pair of running shoes and plenty of water!

As noted in some of the other reviews, please note that this is a strenuous activity. We are both 54, fit (gym 4-5 times per week) and have a long history of long walks and pleasure hikes. We did this, but it did hurt Some. It is very vertitical on the way up, and lots of jumping over and around... More

We spent a day visiting Marigot Bay (breakfast), Soufriere (lunch) and The Pitons as the highlight for me (a lifelong volcano freak). The drive-through volcano must be unique in the world. Beware the 1000 hairpin route south of Castries. Also very steep gradients. Unfortunately I hired an automatic car which turned out to be only 3 speed. We spent several... More

We viewed this impressive sight from a stop off on our bus tour. We stopped off at a lay-by overlooking the main town below (as in this photo). A spectacular view. Locals were selling their wares on the roadside too. Our guide said you can walk / climb up these features (if you have the time and want).

This is the main picture you have in mind when you think of St. Lucia. Absolutely amazing. We seen it from Land and from Water, make sure you do both. Enjoy the views from so many different areas. Beautiful.

Recommend the wonderful on land island tour to Sulphur Springs - Soufriere Volcano of Saint Lucia. Walked through beautiful Diamond Botanical Gardens with mineral baths and picturesque Daimond Waterfalls; Two amazing vegetation covered volcano mountain peaks climb up and out of the Caribbean Sea are beautiful natural nature wonders of the world. Gros Piton + Petit Piton (Big Peak +... More

This was an amazing site to see. The story of the island is that they resemble the breast of a woman. You can climb them but getting to the top of the peak is not easy. So just enjoy the view, its beautiful

We climbed Gros Piton last week. We had an excellent guide (Trennie I believe his name is, a very enthusiastic 24 year old), who paced us well. We went up with another couple with about the same level of fitness, quite helpful really. It is a steep climb, especially the second half, and some clambering over boulders to start with... More

We (reasonably fit couple in our sixties) did this hike after doing Boiling Lake (Dominica) and Mont Pelee (Martinique). It is the easiest of the three. If you can do the Grouse Grind in Vancouver this hike is longer but comparable effort required, and you have to hike in the heat and go down as well (no gondola!). It's about... More

We did a sail and snorkel tour to see the pitons and they were stunning from the water. We snorkeled in a small bay as well and there were a lot of fish so we really enjoyed it.
