Soufriere Island Delight

Duration: Half Day

soufriere island delight

The best way to see the most captivating highlights of this bewitching island is to come along in this exciting tour that was specially designed to show you the most scenic parts of the island in the magical town of Soufriere.The way to truly discover the heart of St Lucia is to head a bit south along the island’s capturing West Coast. Travel across two traditional and charming fishing villages in a fully air-conditioned van, acclimatised for your comfort and designed to masterfully show you the best views that you will encounter on this fantastic ride. Drive your way through buoyant banana and coconut plantations surrounded by the rich tropical vegetation that blesses this island.

As you approach the highly acclaimed town of Soufriere stunning views will appear before your eyes as the twin Pitons rise against the stunning landscape. Your first stop will be at the iconic Sulphur Springs, located at the world’s one and only Drive-In Volcano. Contemplate at leisure the bubbling steaming pools of the volcano and the more serene springs with their long used mineral baths. Your guide will take the time to tell you all about the now dormant volcano and will offer a unique direct and fascinating lesson in the violent geology history of the Caribbean Rim.

After this incredible encounter with one of nature’s most dynamic and brutal forces you will continue by making your way towards the unparalleled setting of Toraille Waterfall located amidst the enchanting Diamond Botanical Gardens. View this magnificent waterfall cascading down a 50 ft. hillside and going downstream into a pool surrounded by the breathtaking gardens. Don’t forget to bring your bathing suit and towel along as you will have the unique opportunity to plunge in this fresh water pool at the waterfall’s base.

A guide will take you through this splendid private property comprising the Diamond Botanical Gardens. This beautiful area created by Louis XIV to honour the three Devaux brothers from Normandy in recognition of their services to France is still owned by their descendants and as your guide will explain you, the gardens are maintained by Joan Du Bouley Devaux. As soon as you enter these magical gardens you will be assaulted with the feeling of being in a very special place…you will have just stepped into a world where waterfalls softly gush from the mouth of a volcano, with hot mineral springs filling baths with medicinal waters. Of one thing you can be sure; the natural beauty of this historical and natural site gives an amazing experience not to be surpassed anywhere in the Caribbean!

After seeing so many wonders at once you can catch your breath back whilst returning along a scenic route that will allow for fully taking in and savouring the delightful encounters you’ve just experienced! An incredible tour for those that want to discover St Lucia’s best of everything!
