Soufriere Piton Waterfalls & Volcano Shore Trip in St. Lucia

There's so much to see at scenic Soufriere, from the Piton Waterfalls to the "drive-in volcano," and we're ready to take you to it!

After boarding your air-conditioned van for your St. Lucia excursion, you'll depart the ship pier and pass through Castries, St. Lucia's capital. Enjoy the spectacular views as you head south and wind along the scenic West Coast Road. Along the way you will see St. Lucia's largest banana plantation and several quaint fishing villages.

A stop will be made to hike to the Piton Waterfalls (also called Warm Mineral Falls, which you can stand directly beneath). You will enjoy a short, uphill walk with a few steps. During your visit, you can enjoy a refreshing bath in the natural swimming pool.

Your next stop is at the Soufriere volcano, referred to as the "drive-in volcano." A short, easy walk in the rainforest will take you to a point where you will see (and smell) sulfur springs bubbling up from below. You'll have a bit of time to admire the pots of boiling water that are multicolored at the surface as a result of sulfur, iron, calcium oxide, copper oxide, magnesium, carbon and other minerals within the water. For those interested, mud baths are available at the sulfur springs for an additional fee of $6 US per person (not included). As you wind your way through the island's hills, photo stops will be made of the rugged landscape including the island's famous Pitons, two volcanic plugs that rise dramatically 2,500 feet into the sky. They are both listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

During your drive, a stop will be made at a local bakery for a snack, such as bread with cheese, local jam, or salt fish. A cooler of water is on board your vehicle. Depending on the season, you may have the opportunity to sample some of the island's fresh fruit on your drive back to the pier.

Please Note: Roads on St. Lucia are in various levels of disrepair/repair. Because of this, guests must expect there will be stretches of bumpy riding. If you have neck, back or hip issues, you should take this into account. The tour covers a wide area of the island and there is a lot of driving required. For those interested, mud baths are available at the sulfur springs for an additional fee of $6 US per person (not included).

Reviewer: Mari-Lee Corwin
Great driver and host with Disney thrill rides on small curvy roads. The ride to the peaks through small towns gives one a feel for the people and culture. The end of the ride leaves you at spots for great shots of the mountains (lava that pushed the land upwards) and plenty of beverages and local breads. Only issue we had was the back seat which was hard to get in and out of the van, but worth the trip. Try and get the one front seat or the middle seats beside the doors.

Reviewer: Terry Newsom
I will agree with the reviews below. Fun Disney ride on the small curvy roads with many thrills. Shal was a great host with lots of beverages. Being the youngest couple in a group of 5 we humbly sat in the back seat of the van which we had to climb over other seats. If we had had the door seats it would have been an excellent tour.

Picked up on time, a few yards from Port, small group, comfortable mini bus. Driver/guide cheerful & friendly. Great tour tried local dishes, fruits, homemade bread still warm, plus beer & rum punch. Spent enough time at the stops to please everyone, and experience the "drive in" volcano

Reviewer: David Berkey
Our driver was informative and there was good scenery throughout, but roads were quite winding and it was easy to get a little queasy. I found the mud baths were kind of fun, but those that chose the alternative to that (volcano tour) didn't have great things to say. Snacks were provided, but because it was a Sunday and the regular place was closed, they turned out to be less substantive and occasionally strange flavors.
