Beginner and experienced hikers alike will enjoy the challenge of the Pitons during any St. Lucia vacation. This is a one-of-a-kind hike over the volcanic plugs that rise majestically over the island, featuring sulfur springs, evidence of volcanic activity, a visitor’s center that shows the culture and history of the Pitons, and several other points of interest. As a bonus, when you reach the top, you’ll be taken aback by the breathtaking views of St. Lucia. It’s the perfect reward after meeting the challenge of hiking the Pitons!

Experienced Tour Guides and Safe Hiking

exilerating hike at the pitonsThe concierge service that is available to you when you stay at the luxury villa rentals of Akasha will arrange for your hike so that you can relax and gather your energy (or load up on carbs and protein with an excellent breakfast) for the hike. The experienced tour guides that will take you on your hike are trained to ensure your safety, so that you have no worries while you’re completing your challenge. They will also be there to point out every interesting detail of your hike so that you don’t miss a thing. There are two Pitons to climb, the Gros Piton and the Petit Piton. The tour guides will take you along the trails of the Gros Piton, and they are necessary and mandated, so you cannot go alone. The trails are clearly marked, and there is little to no exposure on the hike, so the danger is minimal on Gros Piton. The Interpretive Centre will tell you all that you need to know about what you’ll see, and you’ll be able to catch a great view of Petit Piton from the top of the Gros Piton. If you’re particularly daring, you can chance a hike up Petit Piton, but there are no guides to take you up, no Interpretive Centre, and only some ropes to stop you from falling in the areas of higher exposure — so try it at your own risk. No matter which route you choose, you’re in for an unforgettable adventure!
