If you're itching to explore, St. Vincent offers numerous picturesque trails. Thrill-seekers will get a kick out of trekking up the imposing La Soufrière volcano, but they should note the climb requires endurance, appropriate attire, and the company of a licensed tour guide. As one VirtualTourist user puts it, "The Soufrière volcano is the king of climbs and not for the faint of heart. It is an all day monster hike that rewards with stunning views." The Rabacca trail, a popular route along the windward coast of St. Vincent stretches all the way up to the crater's edge. Another option is hiking one leg of the trip and arranging for someone to pick you up at the end. The Rabacca trail welcomes visitors from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day. To plan your trip and reserve your tour guide consult the SVG Tourism Authority's La Soufrière page.
Nature-lovers looking for some fresh air with a side of spectacular scenery should head just five miles north of Kingstown to the Buccament Valley to embark on the Vermont Nature Trails. These routes do not require as much stamina as the Racabba Trail. Plus, they boast a rich array of wildlife, such as St. Vincent's rare parrot, the Green Herron, the Crested Hummingbird, as well as other species. Visitors are welcome on the Vermont Nature trail from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day. It is strongly advised that you stop by the Visitor Center upon entering to get oriented before beginning your hike. For more information, consult the SVG Tourism Authority's hiking page.
