My Wife and I gave Gros Piton a serious shot, we ran into some nasty weather but our guide was awesome! (Highly recommend getting a guide it can get very sketchy at times) This is not a nice family pathed out climb there are rocks and steep sections that can be scary when it's wet. Beware it is an amazing... More

If you're into having a good hike, seeing amazing views and experiencing what nature has to offer I highly recommend you stop by and visit the volcano.

Iconic symbols and natural treasures of Saint Lucia. There are lots of hiking tours to climb them; it takes at least 3 hours.

Agreeing to all the reviewers here that said this hike was VERY challenging. My wife and I left Ladera property around 7:30am in our rental car and then you turn into this side road that is very narrow, twisty/turny road to get there which was very nerve wrecking especially when there were cars driving towards you from the other side...

From the moment we booked our trip to St. Lucia I knew I wanted to climb Gros Piton (that was before I got to the island and realized how you can go about hiking Petite Piton as well)!! We reached the starting point via rental car. The road is a bit sketchy at times but we made it just fine.... More

All-in-all I would not do this hike again, particularly because I did not think the view was very good. You can only over see the south side of the island and part of the coast line; you cannot see Petite Piton or the north side of the island which I would have liked to have seen from the vantage point....

Viewed from the water during a boat tour. Did not hike them. Just a spectacular sight from the water.

We took a coastal cruise to see these wonders and were not disappointed. The cruise there was fabulous with coastal sites along the way and all of a sudden you come around a bend and there they are ... majestic and awe inspiring to see up close and personal. The cruise we were on did a great job of bringing... More
