St. Lucia Hiking Excursion Reviews

As your cruise ship docks in St. Lucia, one of the first things you'll notice is the looming Pitons -- volcanic spires -- that dominate the island. For the most immersive experience ending with the most breathtaking views, opt for a hiking excursion.

A long bus ride to the other end of the island. Picturesque, lush rain forest and beautiful blue green waters. The road were narrow and hair pin bends all the time. We when on a small hike at a natural park with beautiful views to the two Pitons. On the way back my husband showered in a waterfall. The drive back to the ship was a bit nerve wrecking. The driver was in a hurry and especially to overtake when there were other cars. Read Less

again the port was filled with people who were wanting to take you in taxi's so need to make your way past them, once you tell people no they don't hassle you. We were on a tour, started by taking us to a viewpoint for photos, then stopped at a shack on the side of the road to try 10 different rum and liqueurs, which is great. Next major stop is a viewpoint for the pitons which you climb up, however the view was ruined by the torrential november rain. Did eventually manage to get a view of both pitons but it was short lived. Then went to the waterfall which was very pretty. The tour also included food which was mainly traditional carribean food, and was all very tasty. Got to stay on the beach for about an hour then headed back to the cruise. Read Less

I did the Gros Piton hike. Spencer Ambrose tours is excellent, convenient as their boats are at the port, Terry and Nixon did great job, beer/water/rum punch included, great boat ride and back in plenty of time. This is same boat ride for beach getaway, please note public section of beach for chairs is tiny but whole beach is open for swimming. I made it half-way up Gros Piton, will do longer review in other thread. Read Less

Our only disappointment this Rainforest Hike and River Pool excursion as we had taken another rain forest excursion 15 years ago and could compare them. This one was rated moderate to difficult, but the accompanying photos did not indicate the steepness of the hills, both up and down, nor the occasional steps being steep and with rotten wood. This was the end of the rainy season, and there had been quite a bit of rainfall, adding muddy conditions to the mix. We literally spent 90%+ of our time looking at our feet and determining where to step and therefore did not enjoy the tour. The guide was exceptional in helping everyone, but no-one could enjoy looking around at much, as there was little level ground (even when stopping to look). Our excursions manager did secure a partial refund for us. Read Less
