First, you'll drive through the small fishing resort town of Anse-La-Raye, followed by the quaint fishing town of the Canaries, where you can catch breathtaking views of northern and southern approaches. Next, your scenic excursion takes you to the beautiful village of Soufriere, where you'll get to take in the majestic views of the iconic Pitons, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These towering twin mountainous lava necks consist of the nearly 2,700-foot Gros Piton and the 2,438-foot Petit Piton and makeup approximately 7,200 acres of land.
