Do you fancy an adventure where you can keep up your activity level, enjoy the outdoors and at the same time be able to relax and enjoy everything that St. Lucia has to offer?

The “Tet Paul Nature Trail” is an easy 45-minute hike where one can start the day admiring the wonderful, scenic and heavenly views that St. Lucia has on offer.
During this walk you will be taken through some St. Lucian history, you will be able to see pineapples being harvested, and all kinds of local fruits and exotic horticulture. On this hike, there is also an example of a traditional house, that provides an opportunity to see how the ancestors of St. Lucia lived, allowing visitors to immerse themselves into the beauty of the island and discover some of the fascinating local culture.
This experience is a great one, especially if you don’t feel like hiking the Pitons because of the intense work it requires; it truly is the perfect alternative. You will still get the same beautiful views as you would if you did the Gros Piton Climb but with half the physical effort. In the “Tet Paul Nature Trail”, you will be able to see all kinds of traditional medicinal plants including guava, avocado and soursop trees and have time to reconnect with nature while taking an adventure off the beaten path.
The second suggestion during this adventure would be to visit the warm and relaxing Piton falls. As an interesting fact, the name of these falls is not “Piton falls” because the water is falling from any of the Pitons but because of its proximity to Petit Piton. The special feature of these wonders of nature is that the water is warm and to get to them you have to go through a tropical rainforest to reach them. Trust me that after the relaxing hike to Tet Paul Nature Trail you will feel even more relaxed after submerging into the mineral water cascades. You can read all about the Piton Falls HERE.
