Full description
A captivating one hour drive through picturesque fishing villages, along the scenic countryside takes you to the base of Gros Piton, a part of the island’s UNESCO World Heritage Site. This mountain rises majestically out of the Caribbean Sea ever reaching to the heavens above. You will now begin an adventure of a lifetime as you seek to conquer the Mountain by reaching the summit of a Wonder of the World. As you ascend, you will enjoy panoramic vistas from every angle. The unique flora & fauna provides a fascinating study as many species are endemic to the island. The bird-life is abundant and the mountain is replete with "Brigand" Camps, that form a part of the folklore and history of this incredible island. The View from the summit offers an unparalleled vista of St.Lucia and other nearby Caribbean islands on a clear day. You then descend to the base of the mountain with uplifted spirits before rejoining the bus which will take you back to the hotel.

a well-organised and every enjoyable trip

The organisation of the trip was very efficient and all those concerned (the guide and driver on the mini-bus and the guides for the climb) were friendly and competent. The climb itself was strenuous (mainly because of the heat and humidity) - it was a little disappointing not to have a more extensive view at the top. The descent took longer than the ascent - perhaps because of the slipperiness of the rocks and tree-roots. We were taken for lunch to a restaurant above Soufriere with splendid views of the Pitons (I had expected nothing more than a packed lunch on the climb itself). Altogether a highly enjoyable day out and one I would strongly recommend.
