Christoffel Mt. is daunting in the heat. However, we conquered, and witnessed a panoramic vista from a height of over 1,400 ft. We weren’t in the car by 6 a.m...in fact, we didn’t manage to arrive at Christoffel Park until 9:00 a.m. After lining up...More

We didn’t start until 9:30. That was a huge mistake. I almost didn’t make it because I was so hot. Although the hike was challenging it was pretty cool. We even saw the elusive deer. I wouldn’t recommend this hike for the elderly or young...More

We did the (red) walkingtrail on the seaside of the Savonet estate. It is about 5 km. long. We took our time and spotted the lagadishi, blou-blou, the oranje and yellow troepiaal, 2 other local birds and the warawara ( a large prey hunting bird)....More

It’s not a long trail but it is straight up and down - no switch backs. Half the trail is traditional path, a quarter rocky and a quarter hand/foot climbing (the top.) Definitely get there as early as you can - it gets a little...More

We are so happy that we decided to visit Christoffel and hike up to the top. Full disclosure, my travel buddy reached the top but I stopped just short of it. The hike is challenging not because of the elevation, but there aren't switchbacks. It's...More

What a climb! Definitely go early (before 8:30am) --it takes about an hour to walk up and same going down. Steep areas, sometimes slippery. The views at the top are amazing! You feel like you're on top of the world.

If you want to see a different side to the island, this is it. Mountain loop and beach loop are both included in reasonable price. Some places to park and walk short trails. Not as beautiful as I was hoping for. If you are fit,...More

What a gorgeous view from the top of the mountain. I’m in good physical shape and it was not an easy climb. As you got to the top you had to climb over many rocks in small crevices but the end result was well worth...More

The hike to the top is very exhausting if you are not a sports person. I needed several breaks. But it's worth when you are on the top you forget everything. Be careful, the climbing part can be dangerous, look where you step.

I am guessing it isjust about 2 kmand the path rises tot 375 meters. Normally you drive from the west- entrance of the park to the parking lot for this trail and walk up in around 1 to 1,5 hours up and in 1 hour or quicker... More

It's approximately an hour. The National Park is on the completely opposite side of the island from the cruise port area.

No, you will be fine with a regular type car. You park at the base of the mountain & begin your hike. When leaving, the road out is very windy but not steep.
