Viewed from a distance

As much as climbing them would have been great, I chose to view from a distance. They are a site to see and there are many places to view them from and get great pictures.

Gorgeous! Would have loved to see them at a different time of day to photograph them better. We were there in the morning...still a must see if you are in Saint Lucia!

Spectacular. Lush, green. Saw them from the air plane, a boat, taxi and a helicopter. Very cool flying over them.

We were warned that climbing the Piton would be a strenuous effort but I don't think we fully appreciated the size of the task. It took our group 2 hours to reach the peek. I reckon I sweated about a litre of fluid. It is a fairly steep incline for about 40% of the trek where you will need to... More

When they say it is strenuous, take that comment seriously. My spouse and I, in our late 50's, are in great shape and we sure welcomed the 3 break stops on way up. Terrain is rocky, steep at times and do not tale any less water then they recommend like we did; manageable but not a good idea. Bring a... More

This was a fairly strenuous hike. Steep walking to start then, from about the half way point, it gets rocky, but there are lots of stones, handrails and trees to grab hold of to help you up. It takes two hours to get up and two hours to get down. The views are great. Great sense of achievement when at... More

It free! And its spectacular and different from all sides. View from the Soufrier highway, or from water or from Tet Paul trail.

They are two Pitons, the Gros (Big) Piton and the Petit (Small) Piton. We did not have the chance to climb it (them), but we had a magnificent view from the top of the mountain. It was cloudy at that time, so we could only see part of the Petit Piton. At one time the cloud broke, and we can... More

This is a great hike to give yourself a real sense of achievement, and also stave off the inevitable holiday weight-gain from good St Lucian cuisine and Piton beer! I would highly recommend hiring a guide from the visitors center at the start of the trail, this may even be compulsory(?), either way it helps to get a better understanding... More

This hike was described as "manageable" from several people at the resort who had visited before us. That should've been our clue. Haha. Really- it was tougher than we expected. We aren't seasoned "hikers" but my husband and I both exercise regularly and are fit. It was a very rocky climb which contributed to the difficulty. The view from half... More
