Gros Piton Tours

Perched along St Lucia’s southwest coast and protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the dramatic twin peaks of Gros Piton and Petit Piton are among the Caribbean island’s most memorable landmarks. Towering 2,619 feet (798 meters) above sea level, the Gros Piton, the larger of the two, is also a popular challenge for avid hikers.

The Basics
Sightseeing tours along St Lucia’s west coast are sure to include a photo stop at the mighty Twin Pitons; for the best views, though, opt for a catamaran cruise along the coast or hike the Tet Paul Nature Trail and gaze out over the jagged peaks. True adventure-seekers will love hiking Gros Piton—follow the scenic Gros Piton Trail and climb right to the summit, where you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular view across the island. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Hiking the summit of Gros Piton is only possible with an official tour guide and can take up to three hours each way.
  • An average-to-good fitness level is recommended for the Gros Piton hike, but no technical hiking or climbing experience is required.
  • Be sure to bring comfortable shoes, sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of water.
  • Entrance fees are payable at the Interpretive Center in Fond Gens Libre village.

How to Get There
Gros Piton is located just south of Soufrière; the starting point for hikes is the Interpretive Center in Fond Gens Libre village. The most convenient way to get to Soufrière is with your own transport or on a guided tour. Most day tours include free hotel pickup and drop-off. 

When to Get There
Although you can climb Gros Piton all year round, the most popular time to visit is from December to March, when you will likely share the trail with a number of other hikers. Get an early start and tackle the ascent before the sun is at its strongest.  

Exploring St Lucia
Combine a visit to the Twin Pitons with other island attractions, such as Castries, St Lucia’s capital, Marigot Bay, or the fishing villages of Anse La Raye and Canaries. On a full-day tour from the north of the island, you can also stop at the St Lucia Rum Distillery, take in the views from the Morne viewpoint, or enjoy a natural mud bath in Soufriere.
