Tour Details

After boarding your air conditioned van, you will pass through Castries, St. Lucia's capital. Enjoy the spectacular views as you head south and wind along the scenic West Coast Road. Along the way you will see St. Lucia's largest banana plantation and several quaint fishing villages.

A stop will be made to hike to the Piton Waterfalls (also called Warm Mineral Falls, which you can stand directly beneath). You will enjoy a short, uphill walk with a few steps. During your visit, you can enjoy a refreshing bath in the natural swimming pool.

Your next stop is at the Soufriere volcano, referred to as the "drive-in volcano." A short, easy walk in the rainforest will take you to a point where you will see (and smell) sulfur springs bubbling up from below. You'll have a bit of time to admire the pots of boiling water that are multicolored at the surface as a result of sulfur, iron, calcium oxide, copper oxide, magnesium, carbon and other minerals within the water. For those interested, mud baths are available at the sulfur springs for an additional fee of $6 US per person (not included). As you wind your way through the island's hills, photo stops will be made of the rugged landscape including the island's famous Pitons, two volcanic plugs that rise dramatically 2,500 feet into the sky. They are both listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

During your drive, a stop will be made at a local bakery along the way for a snack such as bread with cheese, local jam or salt fish. A cooler of water is on board your vehicle. Depending on the season, you may have the opportunity to sample some of the islands fresh fruit on your drive.

Please Note: Roads on St Lucia are in various levels of disrepair/repair. Because of this, guests must expect there will be stretches of bumpy riding. If you have neck, back or hip issues, you should take this into account. Tour covers a wide area of the island and there is a lot of driving required to do this. For those interested, mud baths are available at the sulfur springs for an additional fee of $6 US per person (not included).
