Your destination is the La Soufrière Volcano.

Led by your professional mountain guide, your hike begins at the Bains Jaunes (Yellow Baths) -- a naturally warm mineral bath. A strenuous hike through tropical forest, then rocky mountainside, brings you to the summit of the volcano at 4,813 feet.

At the summit, discover an alien environment where the strong smell of sulfur and the sound of deep rumbling will remind you that this volcano is indeed active.

After your hike, enjoy a well-earned lunch at a nearby restaurant before heading back to the pier.
