This mountain may look innocent, but don't be fooled: it's really a volcano, responsible for the destruction of the town of St. Pierre.

Weather was good in Trois-Ilets (south of Fort-de-France), but WHOA was that not the case when I arrived at Pelée at 9:00am to hike. I started from the Parking de l’Aileron (Google Maps will get you there fine with that name), which has a covered...More

It's worth driving past the volcano, you get some pretty spectacular views and photo opportunities. Make sure you view it from different viewpoints.

Only saw this mountain from the town of St. Pierre, previously the capital of Martinique--until it was entirely wiped out by Pelee's eruption in 1902. 30,000 died. Now about 10,000 live in the town, with a recently redone port area that is nice to walk...More

It is an active Volcano,but it has not erupted since 1902. Another thing I like about it that it is very pretty. Also it is very green looking. Lastly everybody that comes to Martinique needs to come here.

We walked from the Aileron car park to the caldera, beyond the second refuge. The path was easy to follow; at times it was steep, slippery and wet. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and seeing the wide variety of vegetation, even though we were in...More
