If you like hiking, you have to do this. Word of caution: when they say it's moderate to strenuous, they mean it. It's a good climb to the top with 3 rest points along the way. The 2nd half is harder than the first as...More

We viewed the amazing pitons at first by boat and then had the chance to swim in the beautiful clear, warm Caribbean sea in between them. They are a gorgeous sight, and a must visit when in St Lucia.

Nothing prepares you for your view of the Pitons. Words do not do this wonder justice, it is simply awe-inspiring. We saw the Pitons both at sea and on land and it was breathtaking. There are many lovely views from various points around the island...More

During our tour of the island we visited the Pitons and got some great views of it from other view points too. They look amazing, and it's so surprising that for such a dry hot environment there is so much green on the island.

You can drive, trek, or visit by boat. We chose the boat option as we wanted to views these old volcanoes from the sea, and it a lot less smellier! Truly wonderful and a must if you are on the island

If you are booking directly at the hiking station it is US $50 per person, however if you're staying at a hotel or resort and there is an excursions desk they may sell a package
