What was your first reaction when you saw photographs of Gros Piton and her geological sister, Petit Piton? As breathtaking as they are to photograph from afar, you haven’t seen anything until you get up close. The iconic Gros Piton, part of Saint Lucia’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site offers an abundance of natural wonders for everyone.
Nature and Bird Lovers
You will be spoiled for choice and overwhelmed by the lush environment teaming with unique plants and animals including unusual species of birds. From the highest tree canopies to the mysterious caves and rock shelters, you will be deeply satisfied with all the rare natural wonders there are to discover.
Go back in time and walk in the footsteps of our first peoples, the Amerindians, who revered the sacred peaks. Then, see the secret havens of run away slaves in the Valley of The Free People, as well as the old pirate hideaways during the adventurous days of brigands on the high seas.
Whether you are a beginner or experienced hiker, you will find the tour of the Gros Piton a rewarding trail. The first half of the nature trail from Fond Gen Libre is an easy hike, while the second half is more challenging with a steep ascent to the summit of Gros Piton. There is never a dull moment on your trek and it will be hard not to stop and wonder at the sights all around you. When you get to the summit, your feelings of accomplishment and exhilaration are only enhanced by a spectacular view of St. Vincent to the South and Martinique to the North.
