OK, its a challenging trail and its not for everyone. Pretty intense in parts so don't go in sandals on a leisurely stroll for sure. I would say its a must if you are in St Lucia and you are reasonably fit. My average rating...More

Difficulty of the "climb" is not that high, guide books exagerate. There is nothing dangerous except the hot and humidity, which can be demanding. Ther route can be a bit muddy and slippery especially in the upper parts. And you will sweat a lot. Sportive...More

My new husband and I visited Saint Lucia for our honeymoon. When researching excursions we saw a Hike the Piton outing and thought that sounds like fun! Well, I can tell you it wasn’t fun and it isn’t a hike, it is a climb. Even...More

Finally checked this climb off my bucket list. The best time to hike the mountain is during the dry months. Can’t imagine doing this if the ground is even slightly wet. We had 2 guides. One in the front and one at the back. Our...More

This was an experience not to be missed. It was the first thing we planned when we decided to visit St. Lucia. Unfortunately, we made some rookie mistakes in our gear prep and Gros Piton kicked our butts pretty good. Fortunately, our guides (Cameron, Alvin...More

A great climb. Breathtakingly Beautiful views from the top. Highly recommend when visiting the island. Do be advised it's not for the faint of heart and body 😂. When it's nice you do it twice. That I've done.

The views all along the trail were amazing. The guides were awesome. At roughly 5' most of the hike was a climb and the trip down was slightly scary. I often had to sit down and slide to the step below. Probably wouldn't recommend if...More

Would definitely recommend for anyone looking to explore St Lucia. Took my girlfriend and I four hours (two up, two down). The views were extraordinary and the hike fun but challenging. We even managed to feed wild birds from our hands on the way one....More

Hiked to the Top of Gros Piton. There are stops 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 the way up. It was raining lightly making the trail slippery. Th trail is about a mile long but 2000 feet in elevation. Think very steep stairs. The third section was...More
