This was our first visit to St. Lucia. My wife and I wanted to do as many activities as possible while we stayed on the island. Everyone was saying we had to do the Sulphur mud bath at the volcano. I booked the tour for the mud bath and was told about the Volga Trail, a fairly new hike that is on the way to the mud bath (it was very close actually)
The hike was moderate at times, few steep hills to hike. But definitely worth it, our tour guide Danny was very informative and very knowledgeable of the area and trail. (He's a great photographer too) We were very thrilled we decided to do the hike, it was inspiring to see the views of the Pitons and the land full of organic fruits everywhere. Danny made hiking really enjoyable that you kinda forgot your actually hiking. We highly recommend new visitors to St. Lucia to try Volga Trail & mud-bath if you are an outdoor person especially if you love nature.
Be prepared to hike for about 45 mins each way, definitely bring water and your best camera, for the mud bath, bring a towel and sandals, you must go to the waterfall afterwards too. Cant wait to come back.
My wife and I hiked Volga Nature Trail today and I must say it was a beautiful hike!!!! We started across from the Sulphur Springs entrance with a wonderful trail guide named Danny. He was very knowledgeable, respectful, and a native of the trail which means his family owns the land on which the trail resides. During the hike, he informed us about the history of St. Lucia, and the rich history of the land, and how his family has had generation after generation. During the hike, we got to see old dwellings, beautiful scenery, and the most spectacular view of all the Piton mountains with sugar beach laying in between them at the base. The hike was breathtaking and only lasted an hour and a half, which gave us plenty of time to relax at sugar beach afterwards.
