Gros Piton, St. Lucia

#1 of 66 in Parks in St. Lucia
The World Heritage-listed Gros Piton represent two volcanic spires rising from the Caribbean Sea. Take a boat ride to gaze at the tall volcanic plugs, or try snorkeling in the surrounding waters, filled with coral reefs and an array of marine life. Brave the strenuous hike to the top of the lush Gros Piton, the larger of the two spires, and enjoy the panoramic views. Climbing the very steep Petit Piton, the smaller spire, is recommended for pro climbers only. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, St. Lucia holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Gros Piton and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • By far and away one of the best trips of my life. The hike up the mountain is not easy but it is so worth the climb. Absolutely enjoyed it and wouldn't mind doing it again. It was one more check of the bucket list. Hope to be back to St Lucia again!
  • Beautiful and amazing hike to the top. Worth every moment of the hike. Takes around 2 hours or more to reach the top. Depends on your stamina. You will need to pay and get a local guide to bring you up and down the piton. Bring water for the hike.
