Overview
More
The La Soufriere Cross Country Trail winds its way from sea level up to the top of the majestic La Soufriere Volcano (4048ft/ 1178m). Granite cliffs reach for the sky, giving way to sweeping valleys and deep gorges and eventually the immense volcanic crater. The walk to the crater is moderately difficult, and takes about two hours uphill from the windward side. The La Soufriere Cross Country Trail snakes across the width of St Vincent, and can be walked from either the leeward or windward coast. The total trail is approximately 9 miles (15 km) long and offers breath-taking panoramic views of the surrounding land and seascape and close encounters with fauna.

Want to test your hiking skills, get Enos ( a guide) he works at the site and try your kills from 6:00 a.m. I highly recommend it. An all natural fantastic climb. I am going again.

There are windward and leeward trails to the volcano. The leeward trail had deteriorated with storms and a hurricane, and is longer, so last winter I went windward, although my friend drove me to the start which is a long way from tourist accommodation. On...More

My party hiked from the Windward side if the Leeward side is more challenging it must be quite an experience. It gets very cold at the top so walk with a windbreaker. Even though it was foggy when we arrived we waited around and it...More

I have climbed the Soufriere 5 times through the years. You travel depending on the time of year through heat/humidity; possibly rain; possibly some fog and cool enough for a light jacket to the highest point on the island +/- 4000 ft.

My wife and I had a fabulous hike up the Volcano. Lots of wildlife and outstanding tropical forest from 3 different climates as you go up in altitude. Definitely worth the hike.

Hello Janettered, The leeward side of the Island is indeed a challenge. If you are fit it won't be of a challenge to you. It takes approximately 4hrs up the trail without being rushed. Yes, we do recommend National Parks... More
