Don't let the website fool you, this is not a moderate climb. I run, cycle and hike so I am in decent shape and I found this to be a tough excursion. There are many sections of climbing up steep rock (boulder) pathways. There are...More

We did the Gros Piton, and honestly, it was much harder than I anticipated. Now I am 60, but hike/bike daily, and this was a strenuous hike. One in our group compared it to doing a stair-stepper for 3 hours, with 30 minutes of hiking...More

I survived. I developed a fan base. Trip organised via P and O, and it was the best ever. Great atmosphere, very friendly staff and the fish were plentiful and colourful. Scenery magnificent.

The Island Day Tour was a shore excursion on our cruise. I would highly recommend this. We saw so much of the Island, met the lovely people and the view of the Pitons from every angle was incredible.

The Pitions are deserving of their UNESCO World Heritage status. It's very cool to see them from different vantage points around Soufriere and Choiseul. We did a guided hike from the community of Fond Gens Libre to the summit of Gros Piton, a 2,000 foot...More

The pitons are the highlights of St. Lucia. So incredibly beautiful and majestic--no trip there would be complete without viewing them!

I have not hiked that trail, but I am a runner and have done some hiking in the US. It is so different, because of the incline and the heat, than any other hike, more like a climb. You are pretty much constantly walking up... More
