La Soufrière Volcano (La Grande Soufrière) Tours

33 Reviews
La Soufrière Volcano (La Grande Soufrière)
The dormant La Soufrière volcano (also known as La Grande Soufrière or Qualibou), is described as “the world’s only drive-in volcano.” It’s home to Sulphur Springs Park, the most active geothermal area in the Lesser Antilles, where tourists and locals alike who come to bathe in nature hot springs and enjoy the health benefits of the mineral-rich volcanic mud.  

The Basics
A walk through the rocky La Soufrière crater reveals bubbling hot springs and plumes of steam that shoot toward the sky—although the water can reach an incredible 300°F (149°C) in some places, there are areas where travelers can take a dip. 

Visitors can book a visit to the mud baths, a walk around the park to see the pools and steam vents in action, or a combined ticket for both activities. It’s also possible to visit as part of a guided sailing or hiking tour or a half- or full-day Soufrière tour, some of which also make a stop at a nearby waterfall for a refreshing swim after the mud bath. Spa treatments such as facials and massages are also available. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Bring a dark bathing suit for the mud baths—the volcanic mud can stain light colors.
  • Pack sunscreen and plenty of water to bring with you.
  • There are showers, change rooms, and restrooms on site.
  • The La Soufrière volcano is not well suited to those with limited mobility as steep stairs lead to the pools.
  • Soufriere is the french word for sulphur, and you’ll most likely smell the hot springs before you see them—the “rotten egg” scent comes from the sulphur in the mud and is all part of the experience! 

How to Get There
Sulphur Springs Park is located a short distance outside the town of Soufrière, on St. Lucia’s southwest coast. The park is accessible by road and guided tours that provide round-trip transport to and from the park. 

When to Get There
The park is open daily from 9am to 5pm, with the exception of the first Friday in September each year. The site can get busy, especially on weekends—book a guided tour to skip the ticket line at the entrance.

Exploring Soufrière Town 
Just a short drive away from La Soufrière volcano, Soufrière is a must-visit on any trip to St. Lucia. The town was once the island’s capital, and many of its colorful colonial buildings still remain. Surrounded by vibrant green hills with views of the Caribbean Sea and the iconic Piton mountains, Soufrière allows visitors to explore the charming streets or visit a working cacao plantation.
