Gros Piton Nature Climb
The Pitons, St Lucia’s twin volcanic peaks, are certainly her best-known features, and a Gros Piton hike is an experience unlike any other. Gros Piton rises 2,619 feet from the sea and, coupled with Petit Piton, is the hallmark of St Lucia’s western coast.
You are picked up from your hotel lobby as early as 7am then driven for an hour and a half to the base of the Pitons. A Piton hike is the only way to see the island from this vantage point, and the experience from the summit fully justifies the effort. From the peak, you can see not only the gorgeous waters of the Caribbean, but also a vast portion of the island itself.
It is best to start the climb early before the sun gets very hot.
This tour is recommended for very fit individuals.
