Day Trip: Explore the Pitons
Visible for miles, The Pitons (meaning “peaks” in French) are comprised of the smaller Petit Piton and larger Gros Piton. These majestic natural wonders are actually volcanic plugs, and reach up to 771 and 743 meters tall, respectively. If you’re looking for a rigorous workout or simply stunning views (or both), we highly suggest exploring this exquisite Saint Lucian national landmark.
Take A Hike
A short car ride from Cap Maison south past Soufrière, the trail to the pitons is a scenic wonder not to be missed. The average hike time to the top of Gros Piton – a relatively strenuous jaunt – is about two hours, so make sure to stay hydrated, plan to go early when the temperature is cooler and give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the remarkable views from the top. Even if you only make it halfway up the peak, the sights are well worth the climb! The hike is guided by a local tour guide from The Soufrière Foundation who well-versed in the terrain, and we are more than happy to help you arrange your hike via our Online Concierge.
