Guided Walking Holidays St Lucia One of the Windward Islands, St Lucia is only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide. Inland, away from the coast, tropical rain forests cover much of the island’s landscapes. During our time on this mountainous island, well discover waterfalls, coral reefs, botanical gardens and plantations. The sulphur springs at Soufriere are a reminder that the island is still an€tive volcano. Well explore many of the hiking trails and discover some of the worlds most beautiful plants and fruits, whilst admiring the local bird and wildlife as we walk. Naturally, the twin peaks of the Pitons are the jewel in St Lucias crown and have been awarded a World Heritage Site status. Rising majestically from the sea to the grand height of 798 metres, they dominate the southwest coastline and stunning views await you when you reach the top of Gros Piton. Although very much at the top of the grade, the scenery is well worth the effort! Some of our walks may finish at a beach where you can take a dip in the warm Caribbean waters. Well visit a rum distillery and the Balenbouche sugar mill plantation, where we have tea. There will also be time to explore the capital Castries with its bustling market. A fusion of French, British and African traditions, St Lucias Creole culture is an intriguing mix. While English is the official language, you will hear Patois spoken on the streets. Delicious Creole cuisine blends French traditions with island ingredients and many towns have French names such as Soufriere, Anse La Raye, Vieux Fort and Gros Islet.
