The view, weather, scenery and the work out were really enjoyable. While they say it's the easier of the two Pitons, it is still quite a heavy cardio work out. I noticed that many people struggled and turned back 1/2 way. If you go bring water, an extra shirt, and pace yourself, I'd rather lose a few minutes of my... More

Staying at Treehouse ll, with a perpetual view of the bay off Sugar Beach with the Pitons as a backdrop, was nice to enjoy every day. Didn't climb them as didn't look like very interesting terrain, other than the elevation. Having climbed Mt Pico in the Azores, at 8,000 feet, the Pitons for elevation sake alone wasn't worthwhile for us.... More

The Twin Pitons are one of the main attractions in St.Lucia and there's no questions why. This lush green mountain rises above the town of Soufriere. World's Heritage Site! Beautiful! I personally love nature and each time I look at this mountain it relaxes me internally. It's a must see when visiting St.Lucia

Take the road up the western side of the island and the pitons dominate your view for most of the road between the airport and Soufriere. Stop at Soufriere and the view is spectacular. Even better from the sea, so take one of the boat trips.

The Pitons are beautiful ,green,and a challenging day climb.The middle peak was once an active volcano back in the late 1700's.A nice place to visit on a day trip.

We sought out the Pitons or rather views thereof in a taxi island tour. We were taken to a fantastic vista spot where we could view them and snap photos to our hearts content . It's good to see them in the flesh so to speak as they are the icon for this pretty fantastically green island. My TIP, however,... More

These two peaks really stand out on St. Lucia's shoreline. We saw them from the ship when arriving, and while swiimmimg near the volcano site.

Beautiful mountains. We climbed the Gros Piton. It was definitely challenging. I highly recommend the tour. Don't forget to bring a good pair of running shoes and plenty of water!

As noted in some of the other reviews, please note that this is a strenuous activity. We are both 54, fit (gym 4-5 times per week) and have a long history of long walks and pleasure hikes. We did this, but it did hurt Some. It is very vertitical on the way up, and lots of jumping over and around... More

We spent a day visiting Marigot Bay (breakfast), Soufriere (lunch) and The Pitons as the highlight for me (a lifelong volcano freak). The drive-through volcano must be unique in the world. Beware the 1000 hairpin route south of Castries. Also very steep gradients. Unfortunately I hired an automatic car which turned out to be only 3 speed. We spent several... More
