Hiking The Pitons
The Pitons are two volcanic plugs in a World Heritage Site in Saint Lucia. they are linked by the Piton Mitan ridge. Gros Piton is one of two mountains south of the town Soufrière in the southwest of Saint Lucia.
Lying at the southern end of Pitons Bay, it rises to a height of 786 m (2619 ft). It is the second highest peak on Saint Lucia, after Mount Gimie. The mountain was a refuge to the escaped slaves at some point -- the steep slopes made it an easily
“ The hike “
Gros Piton - Wonderful walk with great views up the larger of the twin peaks. Not crowded at all. Very good track, well maintained by the community of Fond Gens Libres. About 120 min to the top. No special gear is needed, just good sneakers and good legs ! Heat stress is possible especially lower slopes in dry season, when trees lose their leaves, You’ll need at least 1.5 liters of water.
From the peak, you can see not only the gorgeous waters of the Caribbean, but a vast portion of the island itself. A Gros Piton hike tour is the only way to see the island from this vantage point, and the experience you will have standing at the top makes it absolutely worthwhile. The Gros Piton trail is one of the most magical hikes in St Lucia and is sure to leave a lasting impression on all those who are willing to make the effort.
When you ‘re back home, we can arrange a nice massage for you in your room !
Tours to the North
You will take the road over the mountain Morne Fortune and have fantastic views over Castries, then drive trough the city and park to visit the local crafts market .
Make a detour to Babonneau to do some thrilling ziplining or enjoy the rainforest from the arial tram.
You head North to Pigeon Island. It is a 40-acre (160,000 m2) islet located in Gros Islet in the northern region of Saint Lucia. Once isolated from the country in the Caribbean Sea, the island was artificially joined to the western coast of mainland in 1972 by a man-made causeway built from dirt excavated to form the Rodney Bay Marina. Composed of two peaks the island is a historic site with numerous forts such as an 18th century British fort and Fort Rodney both used by the British to spy on French Ships from neighbouring Martinique. Today, Pigeon Island is the home and major venue of the Saint Lucia Jazz
In 1778, Admiral George Rodney took over Pigeon island, and built a fort on the smaller of the two peaks. This fort is known as Fort Rodney. To establish clear sightlines, Rodney ordered all trees on Pigeon Island to be cut down. From the higher peak, Signal Hill, Rodney was able to observe the French naval base on Martinique.
There are a lot of different beaches you can go to, depending if you want to have some action or just spend some quite, relaxing time !

Castries City visit
Castries is the capital and largest city of Saint Lucia, It houses the seat of government and the head offices of many of the businesses both foreign and local.
The city's design is in a grid pattern similar to a metropolitan city like New York but on a much smaller scale.
One of the major tourist areas is a port of call for cruise ships. Cruise ships dock at Pointe Seraphine, to the north of the harbour, which is also a duty- free shopping centre. There are also many duty free shops within the town itself and several restaurants and other eating establishments including Burger King, Domino's, and KFC.
Castries has landmarks, such as the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Derek Walcott Square (renamed from Columbus Square to honor the island's Nobel Prize-winning poet, Derek Walcott), the City Library, the Government House, and Fort Charlotte, at the top of Morne Fortune (an 845-foot hill).
