La Grande Soufrière
Make the transition through a batch of different ecosystems as you trek to the top of Guadeloupe's La Grande Soufrière - one of the region's most active volcanos. Located on the island of Basse-Terre, it's the tallest mountain in the Lesser Antilles and reaches a height of nearly 1500 meters (~ 5,000 ft). The trek to the summit normally starts at the beach and, over the course of several hours, takes you through mountain savannah, tropical rainforest, and barren volcanic scree that typify the landscape near the summit. But it's really the chance to gaze into the sulfurous caldera that draws most PlanetHoppers! - not to mention the amazing views across the island and far out over the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Among all volcanos in the world that you can climb, there are few that offer such a continually changing environment as the relatively short trek to the top of La Grande Soufrière. It's simply an awesome experience that can all be packed into a single, adventure-filled day.
