Activity details


Traversée rivière 4x4


It is nice to see La Soufrière from afar, but it’s better to climb it. With a sporty crowd, and a naturalist guide, go and conquer the “old lady” (100 to 200 000 years ago) in its resting state. The guides will come and pick you up from 6:30 from your holiday resort in Saint-François, Sainte-Anne, Gosier, or Baie-Mahault.

You will be setting off to one of the 9 active volcanoes in the Caribbean in the mythical Land Rover Defender. The summit of la Soufrière, called “the Discovery,” is 1,467 meters high and is the highest summit in Guadeloupe and the Lesser Antilles.

Guide Volcan Soufrière

It is now time for a 2-hour climb. Your guides are there to answer all of your questions, so don’t hesitate! Volcanology, volcanic geology, the wildlife, the plants, and the history of the locations will be shown to you.

At the summit, you will get a wonderful view in good weather: Les Saintes, Dominica, Martinique, Marie-Galante… all of the surrounding islands are there for you.

When you approach the crater, the spectacle is impressive, as are the noise and the smell! The volcano, which is still active, spits a white smokes which leaves saffron yellow sulfur residue with force and without stopping.

Once you have taken advantage of the locations, you will go back down calmly, at your own pace, and you will enjoy the vegetation. Be careful of slips in wet weather.

The last thing you will do at the bottom of the volcano is have a dip in the pool of warm, 29° sulfur water as a reward for all of your efforts (les bains jaunes). It is the best way to relax your muscles and appreciate this unconventional experience.

You will have a meal in a banana tree restaurant, which you will get to by going through some wonderful country tracks, between 16:30 and 18:00 depending on the holiday resort.
