LA SOUFRIERE VOLCANO HIKING
Naturalista, Packed lunch
If you are up to a challenge, try to conquer the height of St. Vincent's tallest mountain, La Soufriere (1233 mt) . La Soufriere which takes up about 1/3 of the Island's northern end, towers over the fishing and farming villages of Richmond in the northwest and Owia, home of the Carib Indians, in the northeast. A 90 minutes bus ride from the Cruise Terminal will take you through the famous Rabacca Dry River, from where the Pitons in St. Lucia can be seen on a clear day. You then proceed to end of the motorable road at Bamboo Range (365 mt above sea level) where the hike begins. As you ascend with your bottled water you will climb the 3 mile track and go through the tropical rain forest, bamboo, lush trees and all the epiphytes growing around the trees. Upon reaching the summit after climbing for approximately 90 minutes, you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view, feeling like you are on top of the world. Taking in this amazing view is where we will have a light lunch and fruits. Remember your cameras as the volcano's crater which was formed during the last eruption lies in plain sight as beautiful and perfect as any can be. You then descend back to Bamboo Range to your waiting bus for your trip returns to the terminal.
