Visit the highest point on the island, the summit of La Soufriere Volcano, an active volcano. Challenge yourself and hike to the summit, where you'll be rewarded with breathtaking ocean and island views from a height of 1,234 m (4,049 ft). During the approximate 2-hour hike, you'll pass through rainforest, montane thicket, and cloud forest before you reach the ash-strewn crater with an active lava dome at its center. From here, choose to walk around the active dome via a steep rope-assisted path (which takes about 2 hours) further across the island to the village of Richmond, or hike back down.

We arrived early to try to access the Carpark, however it was closed due to hurricane damage. From where we had to park to the Carpark was a 45 min walk, so it adds 1.5hrs to the hike. The walk would ... more »
Great experience to climb this peak while there is a rainy day
Preferably mounted in fine weather. Mounted very easy, take to right the beginning of walking, long and beautiful places on the way :)
Small nice hiking in the mountains by way of the ladies, too bad that the view at the top was plugged.
Beautiful and compelling to look at. The activity of the volcano is breath-taking. To be able to see if possible with a GUID to all special places of the volcano. The way up is wonderful and a little exhausting. It is always worth.
Nice hike, 3 hours to go up and down, the start is a bit painful but the descent by the collar of the scale is very nice... no luck that day the there were clouds in the sommet.prevoyez of good shoes and a jacket for the Summit ;)
