Remains a brooding, unique and captivating feature of this magical island. This is our 11th visit to the island and the fascination remains undimmed! This particular January has been unusually wet with limited views of the summit but plenty of steaming going on!

The Soufriere Hills Volcano started its latest eruption in 1995 and proceeded to obliterate the capital, Plymouth with its pyroclastic flows. Plymouth and the surrounding towns remain in an exclusion zone, but can be observed via a scheduled tour or by hiking to the edge...More
