Discover Our Mountain Majesty

Talk show super-star Oprah Winfrey once said that St. Lucia's two majestic volcanic plugs, the fabled twin peaks of Gros Piton and Petit Piton, located south of Soufrière and situated in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are among the top ten things to have in your "bucket list." We couldn't agree more! Every time returning visitors see the Pitons, they often remark that it seems like they are seeing them for the first time, every sighting is mind-blowing. On a full-day excursion to the Pitons, you can hike all the way to the top, noticing everything from the orchids, the hummingbirds, the butterflies, the canopy of trees and one of the most spectacular views you will ever encounter.

Sulphur Springs Park and a Drive-In Volcano

Sulphur Springs Park and a Drive-In Volcano

March 06, 2017

Mount Soufriere, also known as Sulphur Springs Park, is the hottest and most active geothermal area in the Lesser Antilles, and is also famous as the site of the Caribbean’s only drive-in volcano. Although the last volcanic eruption in St. Lucia was over 40,000 years ago, bubbling mud pools, and sulphur-scented fumaroles (steam vents) still abound throughout. The park is named for the sulphur that was once mined at the site, and is one of the island’s most popular tourist attractions. The park also contains hot mud pools with volcanic minerals that are reputed to be therapeutic. In fact, many locals and visitors alike swear that bathing in them produces a restorative effect on the skin. There are many ways to see Sulphur Springs Park, and a visit there is an ideal day trip for guests on the island. Be sure to bring along some sunscreen, insect repellant and extra cash, as well as a good camera for photos.
