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.

Come Carnival with Us

July 01, 2019

Outrageous and dazzling feathered and beaded costumes and unbridled dancing in the streets combine with the iconic sounds of steel drums, Soca dance music, and the mouth-watering fragrance of delectable Caribbean food for a sensual sampling of the fabulous and fantastic experiences to be had during Saint Lucia’s Carnival. From July 12-17, the entire island is one epic party, as revelers move from one festive event to the next.

Competitions are part of the Carnival fun and winners are proclaimed for such titles as the Carnival Queen, the Calypso Monarch, the Soca Monarch, and the Steel Pan Champions. To dance like a native Saint Lucian, be sure to practice the rotating hip movement known as “wining.” Perfected by Saint Lucians and frequent Carnival attendees, this popular dance move is combined with jumping and is the ideal move for most of Carnival’s events, whether you’re grooving with the crowd along the parade route or moving a little something at one of the many fetes.
